Microsoft and Sentillion: A Progress Report on a Crucial Health IT Acquisition

It was a big day last February when Sentillion, the Andover, MA-based provider of health care software, announced its acquisition by Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) was complete and that the company and its 110 employees (most of whom are in Massachusetts) would be folded into the technology giant's Health Solutions Group. The deal (exact terms of which have not been disclosed) is one of the largest health care acquisitions in Microsoft's history, and it plays a significant role in the Redmond, WA, software firm's overall strategy in health IT.
