Medsphere Systems, a provider of the electronic health record CareVue and RCM Cloud announced today that it has acquired HealthLine Solutions for its hospital supply chain inventory applications. HealthLine’s applications, which use bar coding and RFID technology for automated tracking, are also capable of providing support for interventional medicine and surgery, the companies said in a joint statement. Purchasing, receiving and inventory supply are challenging in healthcare because they are maintained in multiple locations, such as nursing stations, operating rooms and specialty departments. Medsphere said that HealthLine’s applications will enhance the revenue cycle management cloud component of its CareVue EHR solution.
