ACS Buys The Breakaway Group

Dallas-based ACS, the IT outsourcing and consulting arm of Xerox, said Tuesday that it has acquired The Breakaway Group, a developer of cloud-based services for the electronic medical records industry. Financial terms of the buy were not disclosed. ACS said that The Breakaway Group's technology, PromisePoint, helps caregiver practice using EMR as they would in a hospital or doctor's office, without jeopardizing real patient data. The software is used to help train caregivers on EMR systems such as Allscripts, Cerner, Epic or McKesson.
