Private equity firms TA Associates and Francsico Partners announced that they will complete a deal with healthcare software company Edifecs.  CEO of Edifecs Sunny Singh intends to lead the company through a transformation. 

The healthcare industry is quickly changing with the help of the technology sector.  According to Singh, “Today’s healthcare industry is in a transformation, and technology companies play a key role in helping the industry navigate this change at an accelerated pace…The investment from TA Associates and Francisco Partners will help Edifecs catalyze this transformation, innovate faster and bring technology to market quicker to meet the demands of our customers.”
