Cerner is hatching plans to acquire Dynamic Healthcare Technologies of Lake Mary, FL, in a stock transaction valued at $2.2 million. The deal is expected to close before the end of this year, pending Dynamic shareholder and regulatory approvals. Dynamic provides clinical and diagnostic workflow software and Internet applications for pathology, laboratory, and radiology services to approximately 640 clients. The company reported revenues of $25.6 million last year. Cerner offers integrated clinical and financial information systems and services. A defining element of the deal is the acquisition of Dynamic’s IT in pathology, which Cerner executives believe will gain in importance with the increasing impact of genomics on healthcare.
