Medical content and educational services firm Wolters Kluwer Health has acquired iCare Academic LLC, which has developed a simulated electronic health record system for use in nursing schools.

Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. The iCare software enables students to learn about EHRs in the classroom and in simulation environments, according to the Knoxville, Tenn.-based vendor. The United States currently has more than 3,000 nursing schools but only 1 percent of them provide access to EHRs, says Frank Mortimer, publisher for nursing education at Philadelphia-based Wolters Kluwer Health.

Founders of iCare include faculty of the University of Tennessee. More information is available at
