The MIT and Nexus teams will remain unchanged, the company said.

Medicus IT: Merger and Acquisition Experience

MIT already has considerable M&A experience behind it. Most recently, the firm acquired Rutherford, New Jersey’s PriorityOne Group.

Other acquisitions have included:

MIT manages 400+ customer locations and 6,000+ endpoints in healthcare practices across the Southeast United States, Medicus IT indicates on its website.

Medical practitioners – doctors offices, imaging centers, dental practices, clinics, and other healthcare facilities – are no different than other companies looking for outsourced IT help. However, getting a handle on compliance issues like HIPAA and electronic health records (EHRs) can be difficult for channel partners. Companies like Compliancy Group have emerged to help MSPs understand HIPAA and other healthcare-related services.
