Quality Systems Makes Deal

Vita Reed Monday, September 9, 2013

Irvine-based Quality Systems Inc. said today that it bought Costa Mesa-based Mirth Corp. Financial terms weren’t disclosed.

Quality makes software that dentists and doctors use to manage their practices.

Mirth makes technology that helps healthcare providers and institutions achieve interoperability, meaning hospitals, doctor’s offices and other providers, such as nursing homes, can easily send data among themselves.

Quality said in a news release that being able to harmonize data “is critical to the next phase of healthcare reform and accountable care delivery.”

Quality shares were flat, with a market value of $1.27 billion in midday New York trading.
