Hyland to acquire OneContent business from Allscripts

Hyland has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the OneContent business from Allscripts, a leading provider of healthcare information technology solutions. The company said the deal is expected to close in the second quarter, once the customary closing conditions are satisfied and then upon transaction close, the OneContent client base and associates will transition to Hyland.

Recently acquired by Allscripts from McKesson, more than 300 customers rely on OneContent for their healthcare content management needs. Hyland plans to continue to support OneContent customers’ current solutions while enhancing the platform with new features and functionality, refining the integration with Allscripts’ Paragon EHR system and leveraging the complementary capabilities of the Hyland Healthcare suite. Hyland plans to partner closely with Allscripts in these efforts.

Bill Priemer, president and CEO at Hyland said “The addition of OneContent customers and employees is extremely complementary to the core focus of the Hyland Healthcare business.”

“Based on Hyland’s experience helping more than 2,000 healthcare organisations manage patient content over the past 16 years, we are well prepared to serve the needs of OneContent customers and eager to help them reach their goals.”
