McKesson acquires Rosebud Solutions
McKesson Provider Technologies has acquired Rosebud Solutions, a provider of software solutions to track and manage instruments, endoscopes and tissue implants for surgical services, as well as medical crash carts and mobile equipment.

McKesson did not disclose the financial terms of the deal.

With the addition of Rosebud Solutions, McKesson said its surgical suite will continue to meet the growing demands of the perioperative, anesthesia and central services areas.

"Better tracking and management of surgical instruments, tissues, implants and mobile medical equipment can improve operating room throughput, dramatically reduce new instrument purchases, and help improve patient safety by reducing delays on the operating table," said Chris Bauleke, vice president and general manager of Resource Management solutions for McKesson.

The acquisition also expands McKesson's materials management solution with mobile medical equipment and tray management and tracking capabilities, according to the San Francisco-based company.
