This IDC Market Note discusses recent mergers and acquisitions in the healthcare technology sector and the likelihood that such activity will continue through 2021. This is driven both by the need for integrated solutions to better manage at-risk contracts and to compete in the race toward mega data resources and technology breadth and depth.
"History tells us that operationalizing mergers and acquisitions of technology companies is fraught with challenges that bring value to investors and must also bring value to clients. How this set of acquisitions will fare remains to be seen, but progress will be watched by many," says Lynne Dunbrack, group vice president, IDC Health Insights.
