The Dallas-based Affiliated Computer Services unit of Xerox Corp. has signed a definitive agreement to buy Nashville-based CredenceHealth Inc., which sells clinical quality measurement reporting software.

In January, the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology certified CredenceHealth's CHlive 1.0 clinical surveillance application as an EHR Module supporting specific meaningful use criteria. The application captures and analyzes data from EHRs, such as laboratory and radiology results, medications, and vital signs, to alert clinicians when possible changes in a patient's condition happen simultaneously and could signal deterioration.

ACS will integrate CHlive into its Midas care management product line and rename the application Midas+ Live. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. More information is available at
