Greenway Medical Technologies Inc., a Carrollton-Ga.-based healthcare information solutions provider, announced it is acquiring certain technology assets of CySolutions Inc., provider of integrated information technology solutions for Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) and Community Health Centers (CHCs). In addition, Greenway will expand its development team through the retention of highly skilled staff members with advanced knowledge of these and other complex healthcare delivery and reporting needs.
According to the National Association of Community Health Centers, there are more than 7,900 FQHC and CHC facilities in the U.S. serving 20 million patients. This number is expected to increase to 35 million by end of 2013, and double over next 10 years. Incentives to continue to provide quality healthcare to these patients were included within the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
Based on the public funding requirements for much of FQHC and CHC care, innovative health IT solutions for such functions as data exchange, quality reporting, billing and analytics are required. The combination of Greenway and CySolutions expertise, integrated within Greenway’s EHR, practice management and interoperability solution PrimeSUITE 2011, will enhance these functions to advance internal and external reporting, workflow automation, integration of clinical, financial and administrative data and provide design for Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and other care coordination reimbursement programs put forth by payers and health plans.
