Odd, Mediware, a major player in standalone ancillary department systems, with a Pharmacy product called "Worx," Â just acquired Hanns-On, a standalone Pharmacy system leader. We've seen Hanns On in a number of client hospitals over the years, and its a solid system - reasonably priced with strong functionality. A major competitor of Worx. So why does Mediware need 2 Pharmacy systems? Good question; anyone got any answers??
Acquisition was a relative bargain at $3.5M. That's about what large AMCs and IDNs pay for the Pharmacy piece (license fee & implementation) in their giga-buck EMR systems...Â
