Siemens Healthineers plans to buy Medicalis, a health-care technology company.

Siemens Healthineers, of Malvern, has agreed to buy Medicalis Corp., a health care technology company based in San Francisco and Kitchener, Ontario, Siemens said Wednesday.

The price was not disclosed.

Medicalis is expected to add to Siemens's services in population health management, which is a term used to describe the practice of keeping track of patients even when they are not in the clinic, Siemens said.

Siemens Healthineers is a unit of German industrial giant Siemens AG. It employs 12,000 in the United States, including 1,100 in Malvern. Medicalis will add 42 employees, a Siemens spokesman said.
