Azalea Health and Prognosis Innovation Healthcare to Merge

Azalea Health, a leading provider of fully-integrated web-based healthcare solutions and services, announced today the merger of Houston-based Prognosis Innovation Healthcare, a leading provider of electronic health records (EHR) to rural and community hospitals.

This is the second such merger for Azalea in 2017.

One of only a few SaaS Health IT organizations with a true expertise in the IT, billing and reporting space for rural health clinics and hospitals, leveraging the integration of the Prognosis inpatient solution will allow Azalea to 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.

“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,” says Baha Zeidan, Founder & CEO of Azalea Health. “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.”
