Aprima and HIT Systems Partner to Accelerate Electronic Medical Record Adoption Among Florida Physicians

Florida Physicians to Enjoy Local Presence

DALLAS AND ORLANDO, FL –Jan. 6, 2010 – Aprima Medical Software, a leading developer of electronic health record (EHR) and practice management (PM) systems for medical practices, today announced a strategic partnership with healthcare IT company HIT Systems. HIT Systems will bring Aprima’s solution to small- to medium- sized physician practices in Florida via HIT Systems’ cloud computing technology platform.

“We came to the annual HIMSS conference last April looking for an electronic health record software vendor that made sense for the medical practices we serve . We were attracted to Aprima’s solution infrastructure and to their approach to their program,” said Steve Sequenzia, co-founder and CEO of HIT Systems . “Through this new partnership and our cloud computing capability, our healthcare clients get a turnkey EHR and practice management solution without experiencing the typical disruptions that take place when software is installed at a client’s site. A set monthly fee minimizes the up- front costs and simplifies financial planning complexities that practices otherwise shoulder.”

“This partnership will be a tremendous benefit to medical practices in Florida looking to automate their clinical and administrative functions with minimal complexity,” said Michael Nissenbaum, CEO of Aprima. “With high speed internet access and some modestly configured computers or tablet computers, a practice working with HIT Systems can be live as quickly as they can make time for product training,” he added.

Unlike template-based EHRs that force individual providers to conform to practice-wide standards while satisfying no one, Aprima’s template-free electronic health record software enables providers to follow their own protocols. Its adaptive learning feature speeds adoption and deployment, a critical capability as medical practices seek to meet “meaningful use” standards for government stimulus fund reimbursements. Furthermore, as a single EHR + PM application built on a single database, Aprima affords users with the fastest access to clinical and financial data.
