MEDHOST, Inc. (HMS) develops and distributes informatics software solutions for hospitals and healthcare facilities.


On February 1, 2010, HealthTech Holdings, the parent of Healthcare Management Systems, Inc. (HMS), acquired MEDHOST, Inc., then a developer of emergency department systems. MEDHOST's software was to be integrated into HMS's hospital information system.[1]

Bill Anderson, chairman and CEO of MEDHOST, stated, "Unifying our offerings under the highly recognizable MEDHOST brand is the next logical step in our company’s evolution."[2]
