Med Tech Solutions, a Valencia-based health care cloud computing company, has acquired the health information technology business unit of Constellation Inc.
In a statement, MTS said the move will help the company better serve its clients and promote continued growth.
Constellation has a base of operations in Minneapolis, so the acquisition is expected to help MTS expand its presence in the Midwest and increase the number of health IT experts who specialize in NextGen and other clinical systems.
Constellation’s Health IT business unit and MTS share similar vision, values and strategy, said MTS CEO James Deck.
In connection with the purchase, Steve Heimel, Constellation’s vice president of health IT operations, has been named chief operating officer of MTS. Heimel will oversee technology and delivery, the project management office and client management.
“Bringing Steve on board is one of the key steps for us to take toward building a fully integrated cloud-first health care IT platform,” said Deck. “Steve’s background and experience complement our leadership team as we look to advance MTS to our next stage of operational maturity and sustained growth. As a high-growth, fast-paced cloud and health care IT services company, MTS and our customers will benefit immensely with Steve as COO.”
Med Tech Solutions works with healthcare payers and providers to provide health information technology and cloud solutions. It has regional offices in St. Louis, Minneapolis, and Morristown, N.J.
Constellation is a holding company of policyholder-owned insurers and other organizations providing medical liability insurance and services that support physicians and other health care providers.
