Acquisition Plans for Aprima
As part of the acquisition, the combined company will operate as eMDs and Aprima, an eMDs company, until the integration is finalized. Aprima will be headquartered in Austin, Texas, with additional facilities throughout the United States and India. Pickell will lead the combined organization, while Michael Nissenbaum, the current Aprima CEO, will serve in an advisory role during the integration. The remainder of the leadership team will be drawn from the executive teams of both companies.

The marriage of these efforts promises to facilitate the deployment of new technology across their client bases, as well as position the new company to deliver some of the most modern and capable solutions available to the market.
