Aprima Wins KLAS #1 Rated EHR/PM in the Small Practice Category

DALLAS, Jan. 30, 2018 – KLAS® Research today announced that it has awarded Aprima Medical Software Best in KLAS ranking in the Small Practice Ambulatory EMR/PM Category (1-10 physicians). The award was announced in the 2018 Best in KLAS: Software & Services Report, which is based on verified customer interviews conducted by KLAS over a 12-month period.

KLAS utilizes two methods to collect their data. Initially, KLAS conducts a series of vendor evaluations that are completed by healthcare provider organizations. Then, KLAS performs in-depth, confidential interviews with those providers to gain valuable insight into specific strengths, weaknesses and future expectations for each product. The top vendors in the EHR industry were included in the Small Practice Ambulatory EMR/PM Category and Aprima is very proud to have been ranked #1.

Aprima earned an overall score of 85.3, a significantly higher score than the vendor average in this category.

Physician satisfaction with Aprima is obvious: “About twice a year I get a phone call from KLAS. At the end of my last call we were talking and the interviewer said to me ‘You know, I talk to a lot of physicians using a lot of EMRs and Aprima physicians are the only ones who don’t universally hate their EMR.’ When I hear from doctors that they stay two hours at the end of their day finishing notes, it is inconceivable to me. In the seven plus years of using Aprima, that has never once happened. The tools that are in Aprima are such that 98 percent of the time, my note is finished before my patient hits the checkout window,” said Hank Lubin, MD, Hightstown Medical Associates.

“Best in KLAS is more than a ranking. It is a recognition of vendors committed to delivering superior solutions,” said Adam Gale, President of KLAS. “It gives voice to thousands of providers who are demanding better performance, usability and interoperability in healthcare technology.”

“Our entire team puts the customer at the forefront of everything we do – from providing world-class, US-based customer service to constantly updating our solutions to take advantage of new technologies and evolving market demands. This award is a reflection of our ongoing commitment to the customer and our dedication to serving this market,” said Michael Nissenbaum, president and CEO of Aprima. “Practices that use Aprima know they can rely on us to support them in meeting their financial goals, managing ever-changing government regulations and providing better patient care.”

This recognition closely follows Aprima receiving a top-tier rating from providers for the second consecutive year in the large and small clinic category in the KLAS report Ambulatory RCM Services 2017: Finding Consistent Partners and the Frost & Sullivan 2017 Award for Product Leadership.

DAS Health Acquires Integra to Strengthen Healthcare IT Offering

DAS Health Acquires Integra IT Solutions, Consultancy.org, UK | DAS Health
The global appetite for mergers and acquisitions among professional services firms in the health sector has continued into 2018, with the purchase of Integra IT Solutions by DAS Health. The Las Vegas-based Integra is DAS Health’s fifth acquisition in recent years, as the firm bids to expand in anticipation of uncertainty in the healthcare segment.

Thanks to its aggressive campaign of acquisitions which has seen DAS bolt on five firms in less than three years, the company is already a leader in patient-centric health IT and management services and the largest national reseller of medical software. The firm additionally offers cloud hosting, managed IT, Security Risk Assessments, and MIPS/MACRA consulting, and medical billing solutions, among other services.

Technology is increasingly being viewed as a key asset in alleviating the increasingly strained healthcare systems of the Western world, with ageing populations meaning that time and resources must be better managed. Meanwhile, health insurance premiums are continuing to rise globally, making the health consulting segment particularly lucrative at present.DAS Health acquires Integra to strengthen healthcare IT offeringSubsequently, competition has become heated in the sector over the previous year in particular, as a number of consultancies participate in an arms race of sorts to best tap into the health market. In 2017, this saw Atos acquire three firms in the healthcare space, while the Advisory Board cashed in on its health education arms in a $26 billion sale.

Las Vegas-based Integra I.T. Solutions, an IT services provider, will further broaden DAS Health’s electronic health record services, and technology solutions while enhancing customer support and care. DAS plans to integrate Integra employees into its overall team, further expanding the company’s skill sets and talent pool. DAS will maintain its national headquarters in Tampa, Florida, and expects to merge its existing west coast operations into Integra’s Las Vegas office, in Nevada. The expanded company will now serve nearly 2,000 clinicians and more than 600 practices nationwide.

“Together with Integra’s suite of services, DAS Health will now be able to share new benefits and better serve both our existing and new clients,” David Schlaifer, DAS Health President and CEO, stated. “This acquisition marks an exciting phase of DAS’ continued rapid growth and ability to help independent physicians prosper in an evolving industry.”

Deepak Shroff, Managing Partner of Integra I.T. Solutions, who will be remaining in his position throughout the acquisition, added, “Joining the DAS Health brand allows us to expand and enhance our existing services, raising the bar as a business partner and healthcare solutions provider. I know that our clients are in good hands, with top of the line support from a recognized expert in the industry.”

Fast-Growing Tampa Health Tech Company Makes a Deal to Help Independent Doctors

Integra I.T. Solutions joins DAS Health Family | DAS Health

DAS Health says its latest acquisition will help a shrinking pool of independent physicians continue to practice on their own.

DAS, a health technology company based in Tampa, bought Integra I.T. Solutions in Las Vegas, in a deal that DAS said broadens its electronic health record services and technology products, while also enhancing customer support and care. The deal was announced Tuesday; financial terms were not disclosed.

The expanded company now serves nearly 2,000 clinicians and more than 600 practices nationwide, with a focus on independent physician groups, hospital and health care systems across North America.

“As a one-stop shop we can help them to remain successful and independent,” said Tori Couch, marketing manager.

The number of independent physicians has been falling. A study last year by the American Medical Association found that fewer than half of practicing physicians in the United States owned their medical practice. Maintaining the necessary information technology and quality and safety compliance often requires a larger asset base to spread cost, Modern Healthcare reported.

Still, independent physicians possess stronger incentives than hospital-employed physicians to prevent hospitalizations, Becker’s Hospital Review said, citing a 2016 Harvard Medical study.

“This acquisition marks an exciting phase of DAS’ continued rapid growth and ability to help independent physicians prosper in an evolving industry,” said David Schlaifer, DAS Health president and CEO.

Integra I.T. Solutions is the fifth acquisition in less than three years by DAS, which has more than doubled in size in that time, and had just under $12 million in revenue in 2016.

DAS’ growth helps reinforce Tampa as a technology hub, Couch said. “We are now better able to represent Tampa on the national stage,” she said.

DAS also has been adding jobs. The company said it planned to add up to 30 new jobs by the end of this year, when it won $90,000 in state and local tax incentives under the Qualified Target Industries tax refunding program.

Integra I.T. Solutions is the second Las Vegas company DAS has bought. DAS bought Falcon Healthcare Systems in 2016. The company plans to retain the I.T. Solutions office as the hub of its consolidated West Coast operations.
