AUSTIN, Texas — May 30, 2017 — Kinnser Software, the Austin-based national software leader in clinical and business solutions for post-acute care businesses, announced today that it has finalized an agreement to merge with Mediware, a well-established leader in healthcare software for almost 40 years.
Kinnser’s software as a service (SaaS) solutions expand the Mediware portfolio to address home health and hospice, two rapidly growing healthcare sectors. The merger is backed by TPG Capital, a leading private equity platform with two of the most experienced investment teams in software and healthcare. TPG finalized its acquisition of Mediware in February 2017.
“Kinnser’s merger with Mediware supports our mission to provide our customers with innovative solutions that support excellent care and profitable growth,” said Chris Hester, president and founder of Kinnser Software. “Not only will our combined company enable us to expand our offerings and serve even more customers; it will also fuel innovation allowing more patients to benefit from better, more attentive care as a direct result of the work we do. I am excited to continue to lead Kinnser as a part of Mediware. I express my sincere appreciation and thanks to Insight Venture Partners and Georgian Partners. Without their mentorship and support Kinnser would have been unable to develop the innovations that are now transforming healthcare at home and improving the lives of thousands of patients every day.”
Founded in 2003, Kinnser Software provides web-based solutions that deliver clinical and business results to more than 4,000 home health, hospice, therapy, and private duty home care agencies nationwide. Kinnser is one of the most rapidly growing companies in post-acute healthcare, and its solutions are among the most widely used. In 2016 alone, more than 30 million billable patient visits were performed using Kinnser solutions. Kinnser has consistently remained a respected and innovative pioneer, empowering home health and hospice providers to provide high-quality, technology-connected healthcare at home.
“Kinnser is a company that cares deeply about the success of home health and hospice providers,” said Sharon Harder, president of Chicago-based healthcare consulting firm C3 Advisors, LLC. “From developing innovative web-based solutions that empower data-driven care, to providing free educational resources to the industry, Kinnser is consistently at the forefront.”
The merger brings no planned changes to Kinnser’s mission, its focus on customer success, its staff, or headquarters. Though relatively quiet for the last few years, Mediware had previously acquired five post-acute providers in the Home Infusion and Home Medical Equipment space.
