Zoll Medical said today that it acquired privately held healthcare-focused Golden Hour Data Systems for an undisclosed amount.
San Diego-based Golden Hour Data Systems develops and provides solutions for patient charting and revenue cycle management for the emergency medical services market.
“Zoll and Golden Hour Data Systems have been delivering complementary solutions to the EMS market for the better part of two decades. With this acquisition, we’ll leverage the best of both development organizations to bring the next generation of cloud-based EMS solutions to our customers. Now both high- and low-volume EMS agencies will be able to field the right blend of integrated patient charting, RCM, fire records management, and healthcare information exchange solutions. The Golden Hour acquisition, coming on the heels of our acquisition of Payor Logic, testifies to our commitment to continually optimize operational and financial efficiencies in healthcare,” Zoll data systems prez Alex Moghadam said in a prepared statement.
“Joining forces with Zoll will have an immediate positive impact on our combined customer bases. Golden Hour’s offerings are a natural fit with Zoll’s SaaS platform and will accelerate the goal of driving data interoperability in healthcare,” Golden Hour CEO & chair Kevin Hutton said in a press release.
In January, Zoll Medical won a $400 million contract with the U.S. Department of Defense to supply them with patient monitoring and capital equipment systems and accessories.
