Ambulatory electronic health records vendor eMDs recently acquired Aprima Medical Software, another EHR company, in a bid to consolidate smaller EHR vendors.

Aprima recently was rated the top small ambulatory practice in the annual Best in KLAS rankings of EHR companies and other vendors.

RCM, credentialing, enrolling

Elsewhere on the show floor, eMDs unveiled Aria Health Services. The expanded offering, which comes on the heels of eMDs’ recent acquisition of Aprima, provides healthcare organizations of all sizes with access to a deep pool of resources to support their revenue cycle management, credentialing and enrollment operations.

Aria is designed to enable healthcare organizations to reduce the administrative burden, complexity and disruption that these normally time-intensive and detail-oriented tasks require, allowing organizations to focus instead on patient care and outcomes.

Physicians spend years in classrooms and hospital rooms before they earn the right to see patients on their own. But the constant stream of red tape related to medical coding, as well as patient billing and collections, often monopolizes the time providers spend in the office at the expense of their patients’ needs. Now eMDs offers an award-winning suite of healthcare solutions, including its Revenue Cycle Management services that take on the hassle of dealing with insurance claims and collecting payments so healthcare providers can focus on their patients. The solution can be used in conjunction with eMDs Electronic Health Records software or integrated with a physician’s existing EHR software.
