With the pending acquisition of Kinnser Software Inc, Mediware Information Systems Inc is making inroads into the home health and hospice space, creating a software provider for the alternate care market.

The transaction, in which Mediware is purchasing Kinnser from Insight Venture Partners, is expected to close in the second quarter of 2017, according to a news release.

“Kinnser’s intuitive platform provides Mediware with additional depth, expertise, and capabilities to strengthen our platform in the home health and hospice space,” says Thomas Mann, CEO of Mediware, in the release. “With Kinnser, we add home health and hospice to our leading positions in software solutions for home IV, home medical equipment and rehabilitation providers.”

Kinnser’s core products—Kinnser Agency Manager and Kinnser Hospice—offer software solutions for electronic medical record keeping, revenue cycle management, financial reporting, and quality assurance.

“This combination with Mediware enables us to expand our offerings and serve even more customers. We thank Insight Venture Partners and Georgian Partners for their partnership and look forward to our next chapter with Mediware and TPG,” states Chris Hester, founder and CEO of Kinnser.
