Medsphere Systems Corporation (San Ramon, Calif.) and Keane Inc. (Aliso Viejo, Calif.) have formed a strategic partnership to provide hospitals and other healthcare enterprises with clinical and financial software. The partnership is effective immediately.

The companies say the alliance leverages Medsphere's OpenVista electronic health record (EHR) platform developed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, and Keane's EZ-Access Patcom, a revenue cycle management solution for hospital environments.

According to both companies, the partnership grew out of joint deployment efforts at hospitals operated by the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) and at Century City Doctor's Hospital (CCDH) in Los Angeles. The integration at West Virginia DHHR was completed successfully and is live at three sites.
