TCI Rechtsanwälte and MUTTER & KRUCHEN advise CompuGroup Medical on the acquisition of Meta IT GmbH
The transaction: CompuGroup Medical (CGM) acquires the entire shares in Meta IT GmbH, based in St. Ingbert.
Meta IT is a highly specialized healthcare software vendor with two core products: MetaKIS offers hospitals a powerful application for the billing of Diagnosis Related Groups (DRG), revenue assurance, performance management and benchmarking. MetaIPSS actively and comprehensively supports all relevant processes in a hospital’s hygiene management. The browser-based solutions can be integrated into all relevant hospital information systems (HIS) and interact seamlessly with the CGM solution suites for acute care hospitals.
The two companies have been working well and successfully together for some time. Now, the joint commitment is to be further intensified and extended to new areas, e.g. in the increasingly important topic of quality management. Other CGM customer groups, such as rehabilitation facilities, will also benefit from this. MetaIPSS in particular also offers a lot of potential for an expansion or internationalization of the target market.
