DUBLIN, Ohio — Cardinal Health Inc. has finalized its acquisition of Healthcare Solutions Holding LLC.
The pharmaceutical and health care products distributor announced the $517 million cash deal early last month, saying that the agreement would expand the company’s presence in specialty pharmaceutical services.
Healthcare Solutions Holding is the parent company of P4 Pathways and P4 Healthcare, which Cardinal said serve key participants across the chain of specialty care, including doctors, pharmaceutical companies and payors by providing essential tools, services and data to help improve the quality of patient outcomes and boost efficiency in the delivery of health care services.
Cardinal called the addition of such value-added services "an important building block" in its strategy to create a differentiated set of services for oncology and specialty customers. The distributor added that Healthcare Solutions’ results will be reported within Cardinal’s pharmaceutical business segment.
