SAIC trains its focus on health IT market

The Washington Post, July 24, 2012

McLean-based Science Applications International Corp. plans to add more than 1,300 employees to its health business with its planned acquisition of Westfield, Ind.-based MaxIT Healthcare Holdings, announced last week. The deal marks the latest contractor move into health information technology and follows the Supreme Court's recent decision allowing President Obama's healthcare law to move forward. Contractors are aggressively buying up health IT businesses in hopes of positioning themselves to win work modernizing health systems and records at the state and federal level and at commercial healthcare providers.
