Computer Sciences Corp. (NYSE: CSC) has acquired healthcare IT business intelligence and data management firm Maricom Systems, Inc for an undisclosed amount.

CSC said the move strengthens its support of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and enables it to make IT improvements in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

CSC said Baltimore, Md.-based Maricom’s speciality areas of healthcare informatics and data management are the cornerstones of government health transformation initiatives.

“The addition of Maricom Systems supports CSC’s strategic focus on selected high growth areas of the U.S. federal government, ” said Jim Sheaffer, president of CSC’s north American public sector business line. “Healthcare is a rapidly expanding segment of the marketplace and we expect its growth to continue as the government looks for innovative solutions to reduce its cost while improving the quality of care.”
