Quality Systems Inc., parent company of physician software vendor NextGen Healthcare Information Systems, has acquired health information technology vendor Mirth Corporation for $59 million in cash and stock.

Costa Mesa, Calif.-based Mirth offers a core HIE platform, along with a suite of ancillary software. Products include data aggregation and organizing to populate clinical data repositories; middleware to support enterprise master patient index, master provider index, facility index, member lists and data de-duplication; and secure messaging and email, provider directory and care management.

QSI will integrate Mirth’s technology into the NextGen product line. Mirth serves hospitals, accountable care organizations, insurers and HIEs with more than 300 clients in the United States and 21 other nations.

The acquisition positions NextGen for growth in the connectivity and electronic health records replacement markets, accelerates the strategy to serve accountable care organizations, and provides cross-selling opportunities, says Steven Plochocki, president and CEO at QSI.
