McKesson Business Performance Services (McKesson), over the past few months, conducted an analysis of their products and services to determine what products fit best with their organization.  After this evaluation, they determined that the Medisoft, Lytec and Practice Choice and Practice Partner products would be better served by a company that focuses more on the individual and small doctor practice market and found a private equity firm , focused on the small doctor practices, that they felt would better serve the Medisoft customers.

“McKesson chose to partner with e-MDs as it is an industry leader, founded by physicians and focused solely on the small- to medium-sized independent physician practice” says Harry Selent, President of ” McKesson feels e-MDs is the optimal  Parent Company that would best serve the Medisoft customers” says Selent. 

e-MDs is a portfolio company of Marlin Equity Partners (Marlin), which is a global investment firm with over $3 billion of capital. Marlin invests in companies where its capital base, industry relationships, and extensive network of operational resources significantly strengthen and enhance the value provided by its acquired products.  e-MDs is a leading provider of integrated electronic health records (EHR), practice management (PM) software, revenue cycle services, and credentialing solutions for small- and medium-sized, independent physician practices and enterprises.

Medisoft and Lytec are medical practice management and medical billing software programs used to help manage the Revenue Cycle Management of individual and small doctor practices around the country. Practice Choice and Practice Partner are electronic medical and health records software used by doctors and healthcare providers to document patient encounters and track details of patients and replaces the paper charts medical offices have been using.

The purchase agreement with e-MDs includes the Medisoft Value-Added Reseller  channel, which is a member of, and services many of the doctors and healthcare providers using Medisoft. e-MDs will manage the day-to-day operations of the staff,  and products. The acquisition by Marlin Equity Partners is subject to customary closing terms and conditions, and is expected to be complete in 30-60 days. 

Over the course of the next month, McKesson will be working closely with the e-MDs team to plan for the transition of the support and development functions that support these products as soon as the official closing takes place. It is the intention of McKesson and e-MDs to make this transition for the customers as seamless as possible.
