McKesson Corporation (San Francisco) has signed an agreement to acquire Awarix Inc. (Birmingham, Ala.), a provider of enterprise patient care visibility systems.

According to McKesson, the Awarix solution is designed to identify and eliminate the bottlenecks that delay treatment and extend a patient's stay. Information aggregated from clinical, ADT (admission, discharge and transfer), housekeeping and transportation systems are displayed on large electronic "whiteboards," enabling caregivers to identify patients with orders pending or critical laboratory results, contends the company.

The acquisition is expected to close by the end of July, subject to customary conditions, says the company.
