Siemens Healthcare has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire all issued and outstanding equity of MobileMD Inc, of Yardley, Pa, a provider of health information exchange (HIE) solutions. Since the transaction is not subject to any regulatory clearances, it is expected that the closing will occur as promptly as practicable.

MobileMD’s cloud-deployed HIE service liberates patient information across a community of providers, regardless of geographic, organizational, or health IT system boundaries. The HIE solution is in use by more than 110 hospitals and more than 2,000 physician practices.

MobileMD has been active in the health information exchange space since 2005. The company markets the cloud-based 4D HIE™, which addresses information sharing in four dimensions: care, service, economics, and technology—providing physicians with near real-time, secure, clinical and administrative information regardless of location, affiliation, EMR technology, or vendor.
