Philips acquires Carestream Healthcare IT business: the Signify view

By Steve Holloway, principal analyst for Signify Research

Earlier this month, Philips Healthcare announced it had signed an agreement to purchase the IT business (HCIS) of Carestream Healthcare for an undisclosed amount. The deal, expected to close in the second half of the year, is one of the largest M&A moves in the imaging informatics market for some time. While it was one if the worst-kept secrets in the industry that the owners of Carestream were looking for a buyer, the decision to split off the HCIS business of Carestream was more of a surprise. Below, we dig into the ramifications of the deal, speculate on how the deal will change Philips' strategy in imaging informatics, and assess what impact it will have on the market.

Eyes on the prize
The HCIS business, while not the largest business unit, has been viewed as an asset by industry peers. As one of the earlier PACS vendors to embrace the concept of enterprise imaging, it has built a strong reputation with customers worldwide as a solid and dependable imaging IT platform. Its approach in promoting modularity of its solutions from a strong foundational basis of enterprise archiving and storage solutions has been well received. The firm was also one of the earliest of the larger market competitors to offer cloud-based solutions for imaging informatics, as well as developing a strong enterprise viewer product.

Combined with an often-aggressive price strategy, Carestream HCIS won a substantial customer base globally, especially in the small and midsized provider segment. From a regional perspective, its customer base is also truly global, ranking in the top 10 radiology IT vendors in every sub-regional market, with most of its business in Western Europe, North America, Latin America and the emerging Asia Pacific region. Our market share estimates placed the firm fifth globally for radiology IT (2017), with Philips fourth, one place above. Combined, based on the separate revenues of each business, the new entity will be firmly established in second position, closely challenging market leader Fujifilm Medical Systems, pushing GE Healthcare down to third.
