NantHealth announced Thursday it has completed the acquisition of Harris Corp.'s commercial Healthcare Solutions business. Harris, a clinical integration system company, has retained its government healthcare services business.

By combining NantHealth’s existing cOS, eviti and omics platforms with Harris' FusionFX suite NantHealth executives aim to bringmolecular medicine insights directly to the point-of-care.

The acquisition – terms of which were not disclosed – comes on the heels of NantHealth’s strategic alliance with Allscripts and its dbMotion semantics engine

"The acquisition of Harris Healthcare Solutions, our largest transaction to date, brings unique and proven technology with a large global footprint that significantly furthers our stated goal to improve patient outcomes by efficiently providing physicians with integrated, clinically relevant patient-centric information in real-time,” said Patrick Soon-Shiong, MD, executive chairman and founder of NantHealth.

The FusionFX platform builds and markets technology that provides next-generation health information exchange, interoperability, and insights to healthcare organizations around the world. The solutions enable healthcare organizations to integrate disparate data sources and leverage existing IT investments to create cross-organizational, cross-system, cross-continuum of care processes and workflows. Its scalable platform eliminates redundancies and administrative legwork and improves quality of care by streamlining access to the right information at the right time.

Soon-Shiong announced plans earlier this month to take the NantHealth public by the end of the year.
