Hearst Corp. is expanding its health care information technology holdings and entering the home health arena by acquiring 85 percent of Homecare Homebase.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Dallas-based Homecare Homebase, a Best in KLAS winner for the past three years, sells information systems to home health and hospice agencies with more than 100 customers whose combined 52,000 users conduct more than 20 million annual patient visits.

April Anthony will continue as CEO at Homecare Homebase and the companies expect the acquisition to close during December. The vendor will become part of Hearst Healthcare, which includes First Databank (drug reference databases), Zynx Health (clinical decision support) and Milliman Care Guidelines (medical treatment necessity guidelines for payers and hospitals).
