Azalea Health, a fully-integrated web-based healthcare solutions and services provider, today announced the merger of Prognosis Innovation Healthcare, a Houston, TX-based EHR provider to rural and community hospitals. For Azalea, the merger of Prognosis inpatient solution will expand its presence into critical access and small community hospitals, and effectively deliver a complete continuum of care platform to an expanded rural market segment.
Azalea Health now services thousands of ambulatory and hospital-based healthcare providers nationwide, across more than 30 medical specialties, and manages billions of dollars a year in healthcare charges processed through its platform.
Prognosis full suite of inpatient, ambulatory, ED and financial systems helps hospitals achieve system-wide user adoption, which results in better care coordination, improved communication, enhanced patient safety, increased charge capture and augmented hospital operations.
As part of the merger, Azalea will maintain its headquarters in Atlanta, GA, and maintain satellite offices in Macon and Valdosta, GA and Houston, TX, with nearly 150 employees across the country. The merger marks the second such merger for Azalea in 2017, further solidifying its position as one of the preeminent cloud providers and advocates in the rural health space.
“Hospitals and medical practices in rural settings are struggling mightily to answer an incredibly unique set of challenges when it comes to access, cost control, technology and more. Innovation is critical to their ability to navigate the shift to value-based care and to deliver services in rural markets, a market that has 1,300 critical access hospitals. Bringing Azalea and Prognosis together, we can now help these providers effectively create a single medical record that follows patients throughout their healthcare experience. Rural hospitals, clinics, and ambulatory practices will now be able to create clinical, financial and quality-driven outcomes with a single platform that lets services be pushed to the lowest cost provider in that continuum. When you include our Telehealth capabilities that reach extends all the way to the patient’s home,” said Baha Zeidan, Founder & CEO of Azalea Health in a statement.
