Acentia, a technology and management solutions provider, announced Monday that it has acquired Atlanta-based Business Computer Applications, Inc. (BCA).BCA is a provider of information technology services and solutions to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other health agencies.
“Acentia’s strategic goals are simple — providing innovative solutions to help the CDC and other health agencies meet their mission-critical public health and other priorities,” said Acentia CEO Todd Stottlemyer. “The acquisition of BCA supports these goals by providing us with a critical contract vehicle, CIMS, which allows us to compete for important full and open work with the CDC. Additionally, merging BCA’s capabilities, relationships, and domain expertise strengthens our technical capabilities and past performance with the CDC and our public sector health customers.”
For close to 40 years, BCA served the CDC, National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Health Resources & Services Agency (HRSA), by promoting efficiencies and modernizing infrastructures through innovative solutions.
The acquisition of BCA significantly expands Acentia’s presence in the Health IT market through the addition of the CIMS Information Management Services Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract vehicle, according to Acentia.
More than 30 employees in Atlanta, Ga. and Hyattsville, Md., will join Acentia’s 1,100-strong workforce.
Along with the CDC and NIH, Acentia’s health IT customers include the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Defense Health Agency (DHA).
