Caradigm Offers Healthcare Providers Unlimited Identity and Access Management with Guaranteed Go-Live Dates

One annual price for Single Sign-On or Provisioning covers software, services, maintenance and integration with an unlimited number of applications 

BELLEVUE, WA – Aug. 25, 2014 – Caradigm, a population health company, today announced new Identity and Access Management (IAM) offerings designed to make it easier for healthcare organizations to control access to applications and patient data, even as their workforces and IT environments rapidly grow and change.

Built exclusively for healthcare, Caradigm® Identity and Access Management (IAM) – including Caradigm Single Sign-On and Caradigm Provisioning – enables healthcare organizations to protect against increasing security and compliance risk by safeguarding patient health information.  At the same time, Caradigm IAM enables healthcare organizations to give clinicians rapid access to the applications and patient data they need to perform their jobs.

New offerings for both Caradigm Single Sign-On and Caradigm Provisioning include:

  • Subscription-based pricing: Healthcare providers now can choose to pay a simple yearly subscription fee for the software, services, and support needed to manage IAM, and align their solution with their evolving IT portfolio.

 

  • Unlimited applications: Subscriptions include integration to an unlimited number of applications.  This means organizations can continue to add applications into their IAM solutions after going live.  And, as an organization’s applications are upgraded, Caradigm will make any agreed-upon changes.

 

  • Guaranteed go-live: Caradigm offers a 100% guaranteed go-live date and scope for customers opting to follow Caradigm’s proven deployment methodology.

According to Jim Campbell, vice president of IAM for Caradigm, “With radical changes in healthcare, providers are facing unprecedented challenges in both protecting and speeding access to patient data. Our customers tell us they need simplified IAM solutions that easily adapt to their new realities – new alliances and partnerships, staff changes, and changes in IT environments. Thanks to our deep experience and advances in IAM, we’re delighted to offer customers a new level of flexibility in addressing these challenges head on.”

Caradigm’s IAM portfolio includes the following:

Caradigm Provisioning helps healthcare organizations protect against increasing security and compliance risk through role-based management of user identity. By codifying access and entitlement rights for the organization in a central repository, and by managing the creation, modification and termination of user access to clinical and core systems, Caradigm Provisioning helps organizations protect patient data while giving their clinicians rapid access to the applications and information they need.

Caradigm Single Sign-On (SSO) and Caradigm Context Management (CM) are designed to give clinicians faster access to healthcare applications and patient data while making it easier for organizations to protect patient privacy and system security. The solutions streamline workflows in virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environments, automate management of clinical workstations and expedite compliance reporting. One-tap logoffs and timeouts eliminate the need for generic or shared credentials. Caradigm’s Privacy Auditor®, now included as an integral component in SSO and CM, provides a real-time audit trail of patient record access by user, application and location.

The new offerings are available immediately. Additional information about these offerings can be obtained by going to http://www.caradigm.com/en-us/contact-us/.

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–As part of its continued efforts to strengthen and expand its service capabilities across the healthcare continuum, Quintiles today announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire Encore Health Resources (Encore). Encore is a leader in the health-information analytics and technology services industry focused on healthcare providers. Through its consulting services and solutions, Encore assists customers with a wide range of strategy, advisory, implementation, process-redesign, optimization, analytics and performance-improvement initiatives.

“Today’s announcement signifies the increasing importance of leveraging EHR and real-world information to inform our customers and improve their probability of success”

Founded in 2009, Encore has more than 300 employees located throughout North America, including approximately 250 consultants. Its primary business is focused on implementation and advisory services around electronic health records (EHR). The addition of these capabilities will enhance Quintiles’ EHR expertise, which is becoming increasingly important as biopharmaceutical customers, payers and providers focus on measuring outcomes based on real-world performance in terms of clinical effectiveness and value.

Biopharmaceutical companies are increasingly interested in the “real-world” outcomes associated with their medicines to enable optimal market access. Encore’s expertise with hospitals and hospital information will help Quintiles extend its service offerings meaningfully for biopharmaceutical companies.

By joining Quintiles, Encore will be able to leverage Quintiles’ breadth and depth of capabilities as well as its global scale to accelerate Encore’s vision of enhancing clinical outcomes through data-driven performance improvement. Additionally, Encore can utilize the expertise of Quintiles’ 950 medical doctors, 900 Ph.D.’s, as well as its nurse educators and world-class biostatisticians to help hospitals and providers solve their most pressing population health challenges.

“Today is the beginning of an exciting new chapter for Encore,” said Dana Sellers, chief executive officer, Encore. “Encore was founded with a focus on driving value through data to improve performance and clinical outcomes. I believe that this focus and our vision for the future align well with Quintiles. We will be joining a global leader, and we look forward to working together to help deliver further advancements in healthcare.”

The transaction, which is subject to standard and customary closing conditions, is expected to close later this quarter. Upon completion of this transaction, Encore will join Quintiles’ Integrated Healthcare Services segment and be known as “Encore, A Quintiles Company.”

New Course with Hands-On Training for EHR Proficiency

Chicago, IL — March 12, 2014 — 4Medapproved, the leading provider of online education and certification resources on topics relating to Health Information Technology, announced today the release of their new Certificate of EHR Office Proficiency (CEOP)  (20% discount if you use the discount code: healthcare20) course in partnership with Medical Mastermind EHR to help individuals, schools and universities by providing hands-on practice with guided online learning on the important topic of electronic health records (EHRs).

Lessons in the CEOP program describe EHR functionality, integration with other applications, Meaningful Use, HIPAA compliance and more. Students also learn electronic workflow by engaging in EHR documentation exercises, allowing them to schedule patients, enter progress notes, practice order entry, experience clinical decision support (CDS) tools and develop basic competencies related to EHR charting. In addition, each license for this course allows the student access to the EHR for further practice and potential case study work in classrooms.

The live, certified EHR solution embedded in this course for training is delivered through a partnership with Medical Mastermind. This award-winning software creates a working environment similar in design to most of the major certified products on the market—allowing for a flexible learning experience uniquely applicable to multiple platforms and medical workplaces.

“Partnering with 4Medapproved on this important step toward better educational tools for healthcare was in complete alignment with Medical Mastermind’s philosophy of providing outstanding technology that actually helps those who use it to practice better medicine,” said Michelle Boucher, Vice President of Marketing for Medical Mastermind. “Engaging with students, physicians and the entire healthcare community at the point of delivering education through our physician-designed tool will provide them with one of the highest quality experiences as they continue to learn.”

According to the CDC, during 2006–2013, the percentage of working physicians using any EHR system increased 168%, from 29.2% in 2006 to 78.4% in 2013. In two studies published by the journal “Teaching and Learning in Medicine,” the Alliance for Clinical Education (ACE) describes the nearly total lack of EHR training in medical school programs, while stressing the overall importance of EHR training in preparing students for work in the industry.

“As educators, we feel the need to address this unfortunate gap in readiness for those who plan to work in the healthcare industry. This course does not simply simulate or demonstrate health record capabilities, but instead allows students the opportunity to develop skills by engaging in true interactive learning,” said Wendy Whitmore, CIO and co-founder of 4Medapproved. “Partnering with Medical Mastermind has given us a robust learning tool while providing a distinct advantage to students, teachers and medical learning programs.”

All 4Medapproved training is provided online and is self-paced, to accommodate any schedule. It incorporates reading with multimedia review and frequent assessments, in the unique 10/10/10 learning method. Volume licensing and team leader controls are also available for classroom instruction and larger group training.

Successful completion of this course awards a Certificate in EHR Proficiency which has been reviewed and authorized by the 4Medapproved professional medical and technical advisory boards. Accreditation by The International Association of Continuing Education and Training (IACET) for college contact hours and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) for nursing CEUs are provided for this course through a partnership with Corexcel.

BetterDoctor Raises $2.6M Seed Funding

BetterDoctor is doctor-finding service based on hundreds of public and private data sources. We have 1 million doctors in our database and have helped 4 million people to find a quality doctor.

We have raised $2.6M in seed funding to grow into a matchmaking service for patients and doctors.

The founder’s story

In 2011, my family experienced a series of life-changing medical emergencies which required a team of over 15 doctors and specialists. Unfortunately, finding those specialists was a huge time sink.

I soon understood the pain of the 70+ million Americans looking for new doctors every year – and soon even 30 million more people because of Obamacare. There simply wasn’t a good way to find quality doctors.

Drawing on a background in gaming and technology, my co-founder Tapio Tolvanen and I both left our positions at Nokia to found BetterDoctor. I used to lead Nokia’s App Studios, Tapio was Chief Architect and Head of Technology. We studied the problem closely, built a team and a system to solve it, and launched BetterDoctor a year ago.

Since debuting at TC DISRUPT in 2012, over 4 million people have used BetterDoctor to search for high-quality doctors in their area and insurance network. Today, almost 1 million people rely on BetterDoctor each month to find new doctors. We’ve designed a beautiful mobile web experience to make it available on all devices.

About BetterDoctor, the product
Designed to complement traditional user-generated ratings and reviews, BetterDoctor draws on an array of public and privately available quality indicators to rank every doctor in the United States.

A few of the factors we examine–which most people either don’t have access to or typically look for–include:

  • Experience
  • Education
  • Medical licensing
  • Board certification
  • Judicial sanctions
  • Professional and referral network

BetterDoctor’s Funding
We are very excited to have a great mix health and consumer web investors join the mission! The $3.6M Seed round was led by SoftTechVC and Burrill & Co. Jeff Clavier from SoftTechVC, Dirk Lammerts from Burrill & Co and Kristian Segerstrale from Initial Capital joined the board.

Greenway Medical Technologies and Vitera Healthcare Solutions to Combine

Vista Equity Partners, owner of Vitera, to acquire all outstanding Greenway common stock for

$20.35 per share in a transaction valued at approximately $644 million

Carrollton, GA, and Tampa, FL, Sept. 23, 2013 – Greenway Medical Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: GWAY) today announced a definitive agreement which will result in the combination of the businesses of Greenway and Vitera Healthcare Solutions, LLC. The transaction will create a leader in healthcare information technology and services, offering a comprehensive set of solutions to improve clinical and financial outcomes in healthcare enterprises, ambulatory practices, public health, retail and other clinics nationwide. Following the closing of the transaction, the Vitera and Greenway businesses will serve nearly 13,000 medical organizations and 100,000 providers.

Under the terms of the agreement, Vista Equity Partners, which owns Vitera Healthcare Solutions, will pay Greenway stockholders $20.35 in cash for each share of Greenway common stock they hold. The price represents a 62% premium to Greenway’s 90-day volume weighted average stock price and a 20% premium to Greenway’s closing share price the day before the merger agreement was signed. The all-cash transaction is valued at approximately $644 million. The Greenway Board of Directors has unanimously approved the definitive merger agreement. Upon closing, Greenway will operate as a privately held company.

“We are pleased to approve this agreement and look forward to completing this transaction,” said W. Thomas ‘Tommy’ Green, founder of Greenway Medical Technologies and Chairman since the company’s inception in 1998. “It provides substantial cash value for our stockholders, and reflects our deep commitment to drive innovation that helps healthcare professionals succeed and thrive in today’s evolving healthcare landscape.”

It is anticipated that the Vitera and Greenway businesses will continue as Greenway Medical Technologies with the products and services of both Greenway and Vitera marketed under the Greenway brand. After closing, the two businesses will continue together to deliver best-in-class solutions and services, and enhancement of existing product platforms to ensure customers have the tools they need to address payment reform models and meet regulatory requirements such as Meaningful Use Stage 2 and the transition to ICD-10.

Greenway will continue to have headquarters and principal operations in Carrollton, GA, Tampa, FL and Birmingham, AL.

“This transaction presents an opportunity to offer even greater value to our customers,” said Matthew J. Hawkins, President and CEO of Vitera. “Combining our business with Greenway Medical Technologies demonstrates our intense focus on growth and our commitment to provide current and prospective customers with proven, integrated and easy-to-use solutions they need to grow profitably, increase practice efficiencies and improve patient outcomes in this ever-changing healthcare environment.”

“We are excited that the transaction will accelerate the execution of our clearly defined strategy of leading the electronification of healthcare, engaging consumers in the management of their own health and continuing to partner with providers to develop the tools to improve population health,” said Tee Green, President and CEO of Greenway.

Greenway’s platforms are consistently recognized for ease of use at the point of care, which has led to high adoption rates among care providers, as well as having an industry-leading interoperability strategy that promotes the flow of data across healthcare systems. Greenway’s clinically driven revenue cycle management platform enables providers to thrive while participating in evolving and increasingly more complex reimbursement programs that are based on clinical outcomes.

Vitera’s first-place EHR ranking from independent researcher Black Book Market Research, LLC and recent Customer Value Enhancement Award from Frost & Sullivan underscore the value of Vitera’s industry-leading solutions and services. Vitera’s portfolio of highly interoperable EHR and practice management solutions is ICD-10-enabled, certified for Meaningful Use Stage 2, and approved for pre-validation as a Patient-Centered Medical Home.

Under the terms of the agreement, an affiliate of Vista Equity Partners will commence a tender offer for all of the outstanding shares of Greenway’s common stock. Closing of the transaction is conditioned upon, among other things, satisfaction of a minimum tender condition, clearance under the Hart-Scott-Rodino (HSR) Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, and other customary closing conditions. The closing of the transaction is not contingent on financing. In the event that the minimum tender condition is not met, and in certain other circumstances, the parties have agreed to complete the transaction through a one-step merger after receipt of stockholder approval. Greenway expects the transaction to close in the fourth calendar quarter of 2013.

Certain of Greenway’s stockholders (Investor Group L.P., Investor Growth Capital Limited and Pamlico Capital II, L.P.), each of Greenway’s directors (W. Thomas Green, Jr., Wyche T. Green, III, Robert Hensley, Neal Morrison, Thomas T. Richards, Walter Turek and Noah Walley), and certain executive officers of Greenway, including Gregory H. Schulenburg (Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer), James A. Cochran (Chief Financial Officer) and William G. Esslinger, Jr. (Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary), have each agreed to tender their shares into the offer, and vote their shares in favor of the definitive merger agreement and the merger, subject to certain terms and conditions. These stockholders collectively own approximately 50.9% of Greenway’s outstanding shares. These agreements will terminate upon termination of the definitive merger agreement in accordance with its terms in order for the Company to accept a superior offer and upon certain other circumstances.

The affiliate of Vista has obtained equity and debt financing commitments for the transactions contemplated by the merger agreement, the aggregate proceeds of which will be sufficient for Vista’s affiliate to pay the aggregate merger consideration and all related fees and expenses. Vista has committed to capitalize its affiliate, at or immediately prior to the effective time of the merger, with an aggregate equity contribution in an amount up to $650 million, which will be sufficient for the Affiliate to consummate the transactions contemplated by the merger agreement even if Vista’s debt financing is not available, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in an equity funding commitment letter, dated as of September 23, 2013.

Vitera Healthcare Solutions Earns No. 1 Ranking in Independent EHR Satisfaction Survey

Receives highest overall satisfaction ratings for practice management and EHR services —  regardless of size or specialty — based on reported user satisfaction and productivity

Tampa, Florida – July 24, 2013 – Vitera Healthcare Solutions, the nation’s premier provider of ambulatory electronic health records (EHR) and practice management software and services, announced today it ranks No. 1 in an EHR user satisfaction survey by impartial researcher Black Book Rankings, securing the top spot as the vendor most likely to address providers’ EHR replacement market needs.

“Vitera’s No. 1 ranking, over all other evaluated vendors, is based on its intense focus on customers and its wide-ranging ability to best meet the challenges relevant to today’s physician practices — regardless of size or specialty,” says Doug Brown, Managing Partner, Black Book Market Research LLC.

Brown added, “Our ranking system is designed to replicate, in many ways, the evaluation process that healthcare organizations use to select their outsourced vendors and business partners.”

The first-place ranking is based on seven different Black Book polls conducted throughout 2013, as well as more than 500 telephone surveys and 2,900 online surveys. In total, the survey evaluated 527 vendors.

Vitera tops that group, scoring the highest overall satisfaction ratings across all practices sizes and all specialties in the areas of physician productivity, practice satisfaction, user satisfaction, Meaningful Use attestations, interoperability and evidence of e-prescribing certifications.

“We are building our company around a core set of values that reflect a deep commitment to our customers in everything we do — from delivering innovative, easy-to-use solutions to helping customers better use those solutions to navigate a rapidly changing healthcare environment,” says Matthew Hawkins, CEO of Vitera Healthcare Solutions. “We will stay intensely focused on providing physician practices — including those looking to replace their current EHR systems — the products, support and regulatory insight they need to improve practice profitability, workflow and patient outcomes.”

Vitera has introduced four new products within the past year, including Vitera Stat and Intergy Mobile, and has enhanced its practice management and EHR solutions to be easier to use and focused on helping physicians meet new regulatory requirements. To date, Vitera has helped over 4,100 eligible medical professionals secure more than $91 million in Stage 1 Meaningful Use incentive payments.

Black Book Rankings, a division of Black Book Market Research, is an impartial, unbiased source for polling and market research. It released the results of its survey, “The State of the EHR Replacement Market,” on Tuesday.  Feedback for the vendor rankings was provided by EHR users themselves and revealed the vendors most likely to thrive after the current wave of EHR replacements.

Kareo Acquires Medical Billing Company ECCO Health

Acquisition accelerates growth of Kareo’s medical billing services, strengthens team, and adds specialty and geographic expertise  

IRVINE, CA – July 24, 2013 – Kareo, Inc., the cloud-based medical office software and services provider for small medical practices, announced today its acquisition of privately held ECCO Health, a full-service provider of medical billing and associated solutions. Kareo has extended employment offers to all ECCO managers and employees and all are expected to join the new combined company. The acquisition of ECCO follows Kareo’s January 2013 launch of Kareo Billing Services, and the combined business now provides medical billing services to over 500 medical practices nationwide.

“Having worked with hundreds of billing companies since Kareo’s founding in 2004, we’ve developed a deep understanding of the range of capabilities from billing company to billing company,” said Dan Rodrigues, founder and CEO of Kareo. “ECCO is noteworthy due to the strength of its team, the quality of its customer relationships, the efficiency of its operational model, and the company’s track record of innovation. The combination of ECCO’s considerable strengths with Kareo will enable us to deliver an even stronger solution to the market. We welcome ECCO’s customers and team to the Kareo family.”

ECCO Health has provided medical billing services for the last decade, building a national capability from the company’s base in Las Vegas. Through insights created by ECCO’s deep customer relationships, the company has extended its billing services to include physician credentialing, front office services, and best practice consulting. ECCO has built considerable expertise across a wide range of specialties, including Primary Care, Gastroenterology, General Surgery, Plastic Surgery, Otolaryngology, Pain Management, Endocrinology, Internal Medicine, Podiatry, Infectious Diseases, Hospitalist and Hospitalists Groups, Surgery Centers, Urgent Care, Anesthesia, Neurology, Cardiology, Dermatology and Durable Medical Equipment organizations. ECCO has succeeded by helping its medical practice customers operate more efficiently and effectively while ensuring they get paid for their important work of providing patient care.

“The strengths of Kareo’s practice management and EHR applications have been a key element of our success with our customers over time,” said Jim Sholeff, founder and partner of ECCO Health. “We also appreciate Kareo’s commitment to working in an open and collaborative way with its partners, including billing companies. Now we have a remarkable opportunity to join forces and deliver to our customers an even stronger set of solutions.”

According to a new report by Frost & Sullivan, U.S. Physician Revenue Cycle Management (RCM), the market for physician RCM solutions in 2012 was $11.1 billion and is expected to grow to $14.6 billion by 2016. “Medical Practices realize they must take every measure to maximize revenue and address inefficiencies and shortfalls in getting paid fully and on a timely basis,” wrote Nancy Fabozzi, Principal Analyst, Connected Health, Frost & Sullivan. “Medical practices will need to significantly re-engineer their entire RCM function, and most will seek solutions that offer robust integration between clinical and financial systems.”

The acquisition of ECCO positions Kareo well for the expected growth in integrated physician RCM solutions. The company now serves over 20,000 providers across the U.S. representing all medical specialties. Kareo delivers an integrated cloud-based platform comprised of EHR, practice management, and technology-enabled medical billing services. Kareo also provides a broad selection of specialty EHRs and value-added applications delivered through integrated partner solutions and maintains a network of over 600 medical billing companies that deliver their unique services utilizing Kareo’s practice management application. In 2013, over $25 billion in medical billing will be managed through the Kareo platform with software and services enabling providers to achieve the highest possible collection rates.
