Azalea Health, a leading provider of fully-integrated cloud-based healthcare solutions and services, announced it was named a FrontRunner for top Electronic Medical Records by Gartner’s Software Advice.

Azalea Health was selected after a review of 140 Electronic Health Records products, achieving top scores for Usability and User Recommended. FrontRunners is designed to help small businesses evaluate which software products may be right for them.

“We’re proud to be recognized by Gartner’s Software Advice, alongside some of the most respected companies in the industry,” said Baha Zeidan, founder and CEO of Azalea Health. “We remain committed to providing critical access hospitals, community practices and independent providers with advanced, cloud-based technology that meets Promoting Interoperability guidelines and helps them deliver exceptional patient care.”

Azalea Health receives this distinction following a strong growth and success year, including:

  • Expanded its hospital footprint with the acquisition of Prognosis Healthcare;

  • Compliance and certification achievements including 2015 ONC Health IT Certification;

  • Partnerships with several industry leaders, such as Iron Bridge, CardConnect and Fertility PRO;

  • Launching new programs including ERP solution;

  • Reports on significantly high results for customers, including 30 percent lower A/R and claims rejections rates at half the industry standard

According to a recent Porter Research study, CEOs, CFOs and clinical leaders reported significant challenges with adoption of their EHR systems, with 66 percent of respondents stating that physician usage of the system was the single most impactful challenge they face. Azalea Health offers fully integrated, cloud-based solutions and services that remove the IT and financial barriers that typically prevent rural providers from adopting or successfully using EHR, billing or telehealth solutions.

Zeidan explains, “Rural providers are unique in that they often have higher aging populations, chronic conditions and are extremely understaffed. With Azalea, we’ve seen these providers reduce costs, stay compliant and free up their staff to focus on quality care.”
