Well, this is at least a partial excuse for my absence from this blog :-)

Today we announce the acquisition of Sentillion, Inc demonstrating again Microsoft’s level of commitment to the healthcare industry.

Many of you reading this are familiar with Sentillion and this acquisition is the culmination of years of successful partnership between the two companies. Our primary goal with the acquisition is to make it easier for healthcare professionals to deliver better patient care by streamlining access to multiple IT applications and patient data by combining Amalga UIS and Sentillion’s solutions for single-sing-on and context management.

So far we have received excellent feedback and I am really excited about the Sentillion folks joining the ranks of the Health Solutions Group and Microsoft.

For more detail please have a look at the press release.
