NDCHealth acquires McKesson's Omnilink
NDCHealth Corp. last week paid McKesson Corp. approximately $14 million in cash to acquire McKesson's OmniLink pre- and post-editing (PPE) business for pharmacy claims processing.

In addition, the companies announced they will jointly market NDCHealth's pharmacy NDC Pre &Post Editing Service solutions to McKesson Pharmacy Systems 2,300 customers.

The OmniLink acquisition expands NDCHealth's existing Intelligent Network for processing pharmacy claims, as the company adds more than 2,000 OmniLink store locations to its existing base of more than 30,000 pharmacies using NDCHealth's PPE services.

OmniLink assets will be integrated into NDCHealth's existing pharmacy network infrastructure to deliver processing, customer support and product development operations.
