Claflin to provide Aprima EHR to physicians nationwide

DALLAS, TX – December 22, 2009 –Aprima Medical Software (originally iMedica), a leading developer of electronic health record (EHR) and practice management (PM) systems for medical practices, today announced an alliance agreement with Warwick, Rhode Island-based Claflin Medical Equipment, the oldest supplier of medical equipment to hospitals, clinics, surgical centers and general medical practices nationwide.

“We are extremely excited to partner with Aprima,” said Mike Abbott, Claflin’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Aprima’s technology and commitment to service give us an EHR/PM provider that we are proud to recommend and endorse to our clients.”

With Aprima’s built-in integration with leading digital monitoring devices that Claflin already represents, Claflin can now offer a complete solution for the physician office. Claflin plans to market this to new customers as well as their existing 10,000 customers.

Aprima and Claflin entered into the agreement in November 2009 and will provide physician practices nationwide with Aprima’s single-application EHR and PM solution. Aprima’s unique , template-free design enables providers to follow their own protocols.
