In July 2009, Hyland acquired Valco Data Systems. A provider of document management, document imaging, workflow and health information management (HIM) integration solutions, Valco focused on the healthcare market. The company was best known for integrating with MEDITECH, a leading vendor in the healthcare informatics industry.

Like Hyland, Valco saw that a quarter of patient information isn’t included in an electronic record – even with a strong electronic health record (EHR) system in place. By adding content management, healthcare organisations include paper documents and clinical files into the patient record.  The acquisition strengthens Hyland’s portfolio of solutions for healthcare providers, especially those that rely on systems from MEDITECH.
