KC’s Mediware acquires St. Louis startup BlueStrata in health software deal

Mediware Information Systems, a Lenexa, Kansas-based company that makes a range of software products for the health care industry, has acquired BlueStrata EHR, a St. Louis-based startup that specializes in electronic medical records software for long-term care.

Terms of the deal, announced Wednesday in a press release, were not disclosed.

It’s the third acquisition Mediware has announced this year, following the purchases of MEDTranDirect in January and Fazzi Associates in July.

Buying BlueStrata, which specializes in software for nursing and assisted living facilities, helps Mediware expand into the long-term care market, according to the press release.

“We see tremendous potential with BlueStrata EHR,” Mediware CEO Bill Miller said in the release. “It’s a comprehensive, easy-to-use clinical and billing system for the long-term care industry.”

For BlueStrata, the deal means access to improved resources for technology, sales and marketing, according to the release.

Mediware is a portfolio company of TPG Capital, a private equity firm that has invested in companies including Airbnb, Burger King, Chobani and Spotify.

Mediware plans to maintain BlueStrata’s St. Louis location.
