NEW YORK, N.Y. April 24, 2018 – Derive Healthcare – the dedicated healthcare practice of the NY/NJ -based, nationwide IT business solution provider, Derive Technologies – is expanding its alliance partnership with Humanscale® Healthcare. Derive and Humanscale have a significant track-record of partnering success, with 2018 marking the fifth-year anniversary of the collaboration between the two companies.

Humanscale and Derive have achieved this success through a shared mission of providing innovative, forward-thinking solutions to address the many challenges facing healthcare. In this light, the companies are jointly announcing today Derive's authorization for Humanscale Healthcare's MedLink™ Pro and MedLink™ Pro Pharmacy Edition Medication Workflow solutions, and Derive’s continued capacity to support and sell other Humanscale Healthcare offerings.
