Intermedix Corp. of Fort Lauderdale announced Wednesday that it has completed the acquisition of Optima Corp. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Based in Auckland, New Zealand, Optima provides technology to support simulation, predictive analytics and real-time deployment of mobile resources. Optima’s technologies are used by both the government and private sector, including a number of emergency response agencies and airlines.
Intermedix was founded in 2002 and now has 2,000 employees worldwide and 250 in its Fort Lauderdale and Miami offices. The company helps optimize emergency management and healthcare delivery through technology-enabled solutions in the highly fragmented healthcare and emergency response industries. It serves more than 7,500 physicians and 600 emergency management agencies.
The acquisition of Optima continues Intermedix’s global expansion; the company also recently opened its first international office in Kaunas, Lithuania. “For some time now, Intermedix has been evaluating the expansion of our workforce internationally,” said Doug Shamon, Intermedix president and CEO. “The acquisition of Optima in New Zealand and the establishment of an Intermedix office in Lithuania are exciting first steps in our global growth.”
