MD On-Line President and CEO President Bill Bartzak emphasized the synergy of the acquisition, highlighting how the particular expertise offered by each company will combine to allow MD On-Line to further revolutionize today's healthcare technology. "The incorporation of Strategic EDGE not only allows the Company to establish connections with the worlds of pharmaceuticals and medical devices, but also allows the Strategic EDGE team to offer their pharmaceutical customers the opportunity to leverage technology and data that was never before made available to them," affirmed Bartzak. "Together we connect all industry players to enhance healthcare in a comprehensive and secure environment.

Jeff Meehan, President and CEO of Strategic EDGE, proffered that the combination signifies an important milestone in the evolution of a complex and dynamic pharmaceutical and medical device market. "The acquisition of Strategic EDGE by MD On-Line makes data actionable, as well as provides a highly unique, robust set of services to pharmaceutical, device, and managed care organizations," asserted Meehan.
