    Cambridge Telcom, Inc. has acquired Global Medical Informatics (GMI), formerly known as New Century Global Solutions,  LLC.

    The full-service health information management firm is based in Bettendorf, Iowa, and provides comprehensive services to regional medical clinics, offices and hospitals in eastern Iowa.

    Beginning in 2001 as a transcription services company, GMI quickly grew into a company providing health information management solutions. Today, GMI is a full-service digital transcription services firm for medical professionals, multi-specialty clinics, community-based hospitals and acute care facilities as well as managing the insurance claims processes, patient bills, document management systems, and IT issues.

    Shirish Tangirala manages the operation and began his career as an international industrial engineer experienced in international trade and technology. GMI’s cutting-edge technology platform, coupled with its next-day turnaround time and quality control standards, sets GMI apart from other transcription companies.

    “We are excited to welcome Global Medical Informatics to Cambridge Telcom,” stated Will Floming, CTI chairman of the board. “We believe our acquisition of GMI is a positive step in bringing the latest technology to our customers as well as a significant opportunity to expand our territory.”

    GMI currently employs five people locally and dozens abroad.   GMI is committed to remaining a predominately domestic transcription provider, but will continue to maintain offshore resources as well.
