On April 24, 2014, Hearst Corporation's healthcare group, Hearst Health, announced its acquisition of CareInSync, a software solutions company providing a real-time, mobile platform to improve patient care by enhancing communications between care providers and patients.
The company was succesfully sold to Zynx Health, a division of Hearst Health and had been funded by a syndicate led by HealthTech Capital in 2012.
