Microsoft buys assets of Thai health software developer

Posted by David Hunter at 11:05 AM ET.

In a bit of a surprise, Microsoft today announced that it was acquiring the assets of Global Care Solutions, a small Thai health information systems developer:

Building on a worldwide commitment to improving health through software technology, Microsoft Corp. has agreed to acquire software, intellectual property and other assets from Global Care Solutions (GCS), a privately held company based in Bangkok, Thailand, that develops enterprise-class health information systems. The acquisition complements Microsoft’s already strong portfolio of health solutions and will provide hospitals across international markets with a new alternative to achieve improved workflow and patient safety through information technology. GCS employees will join Microsoft’s Health Solutions Group, which will manage product development and delivery. Financial terms were not disclosed.

As usual with many of these smaller Microsoft acquisitions, Global Care Solutions appeared on the radar screen since it was a well-regarded Microsoft Certified Partner building its offerings with all Microsoft products.
