Healthcarefirst acquires Minnesota company

Posted online
Ozark-based Healthcarefirst, provider of Web-based health software, has acquired St. Paul, Minn.-based CareFacts Information Systems Inc., which provides similar software.

"The addition of CareFacts was a natural fit for HealthcareFirst," Bobby Robertson, Healthcarefirst president and CEO, said in a news release.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Healthcarefirst provides Web-based management software, billing and coding services and consultation for home health care and hospice care agencies. CareFacts' software allows customers to manage their products on any personal computer running Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7 via its client-server model, which splits the computer workload between the provider and the customer.

"We plan to integrate CareFacts’ solutions into our expansive offering set and are pleased to now be able to offer more advanced functionality and Web-based access to new and existing Healthcarefirst and CareFacts customers," Robertson said in the release.

Healthcarefirst acquired Baton Rouge, La.-based Lewis Computer Services Inc., another company offering similar services, on June 7.

The Ozark-based software company also was a member of Springfield Business Journal's 2010 Dynamic Dozen.

Healthcarefirst was founded in 1992 and posted revenues of $6.4 million in 2009, according to Springfield Business Journal archives.
