Vangent Inc. has acquired the government health integration group of Aptiv Technology Partners, a provider of health care professional services to government and commercial clients. The financial terms were not disclosed.
The Aptiv group ? which has specific expertise in InterSystems' database, application, and middleware technologies ? will be integrated into Vangent's Health Solutions Division, led by Mike Plymack, senior vice president and general manager.
The acquisition provides Vangent with additional expertise in health care technologies, including the Massachusetts University Medical Programming System's database programming language, the company said. The database language is used by many federal agencies including the Veterans Health Administration, Indian Health Service and portions of the Military Health System.
Vangent's Health Solutions offers a range of solutions encompassing the entire value chain, from consulting to systems integration to business process outsourcing. Clients include the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and other offices of the Health and Human Services Department.
Aptiv Technology Partners was formerly known as Proxicom. The Chevy Chase, Md., company, which is owned by Gores Technology Group, changed its name in January 2008.
Vangent, of Arlington, Va., is a provider of consulting, systems integration, human capital management, and business process outsourcing services. The company ranks No. 57
on Washington Technology's 2008 Top 100 list
of the largest federal government prime contractors.
