Thailand’s Bumrungrad International Hospital formed an alliance with Microsoft, where the technology company will acquire all the goodies owned under the Hospital’s Global Care Solutions firm.

Google may be pummeling the stuffing out of Microsoft in search, but its yet-to-launch health information service has fallen behind Microsoft’s HealthVault launch. Microsoft isn’t resting on any proverbial laurels, either.

Microsoft announced it will purchase software, intellectual property and other assets from Global Care Solutions, a health information systems developer. GCS collaborated with Bumrungrad International on the system, which manages over 1.2 million patients annually.

GCS has a long history of Microsoft products in its platform. Both Windows Server 2003 and SQL Server 2005 were name-checked as the underpinnings of their system, likely adding to their appeal to Microsoft’s corporate M&A executives.

“The GCS solution has allowed us to manage scheduling demands, multiple languages and medical records so efficiently that the average waiting time to see a doctor is only 17 minutes,” said Mack Banner, the CEO of the hospital.

We think that’s a selling point Microsoft will use with HealthVault as they work on expanding the service.
