Koninklijke Philips NV completed its acquisition of Carestream Health Inc.'s healthcare information systems business in 26 of the 38 countries where it operates.
The Carestream unit provides cloud-based imaging to hospitals, radiology services providers, imaging centers and medical clinics.
Amsterdam-based Philips expects to complete the acquisition of the healthcare information systems business from Carestream in the remainder of the countries in the course of 2019.
Carestream's cloud-based imaging business will become part of Philips' enterprise diagnostic informatics business within its diagnosis and treatment segment.
Rochester, N.Y.-based Carestream will retain its medical imaging, dental and industrial films, non-destructive testing, and precision coating businesses after the transaction.
