Azalea Health and Prognosis Innovation Healthcare to merge, create EHR for rural providers

Atlanta-based Azalea Health merged with Houston-based Prognosis Innovation Healthcare Aug. 31 to establish an EHR that will serve rural and community hospitals.

Prognosis is an EHR provider to rural and community hospitals, while Azalea offers fully-integrated web-based healthcare solutions and services. Under the merger, Azalea will expand its presence into critical access and small community hospitals to deliver a complete continuum of care platform. The company will maintain its headquarters in Atlanta.

"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," said Baha Zeidan, founder and CEO of Azalea.
