Microsoft Corp. (NSDQ:MSFT) agreed to acquire Sentillion Inc., a health information technology provider based in Andover, Mass., for an undisclosed amount.
Sentillion makes context and access management software used by more than 1,000 hospitals. Microsoft plans to integrate the technology into its Amalga Unified Intelligence System.
The Redmond, Wash.-based software conglomerate said the deal will enable it to streamline access to multiple IT applications and patient data, regardless of whether they are Web-based, Windows-based or legacy systems.
Sentillion, founded in 1998, specializes in single sign-on software, identity management, clinical workstations and desktop virtualization. The company, which employs about 110 people, will continue to operate out of its Andover headquarters. The deal is expected to close early next year.
