iCare Announces Partnership with ZirMed
The Industry’s First Cloud-based EHR for Hospitals Partners with Progressive Technology Company to Help Enterprise-Level Healthcare Organizations Achieve Clinical and Financial Excellence
San Francisco, CA – November 13, 2014 iCare, the enterprise cloud EHR provider, today announced it will be partnering with ZirMed®, the premier cloud-based enterprise business and clinical performance solution for healthcare. With the partnership, iCare plans to integrate ZirMed’s suite of revenue cycle solutions within its cloud-based EHR, beginning with ZirMed’s clearinghouse capabilities. iCare’s EHR is embedded with big data capabilities, which gives its clients a modern and adaptive technology foundation to focus on patient care.
“We feel that today’s legacy, on-premise EHR solutions are not flexible enough to help provider organizations navigate the complex and ever-changing challenges of the industry,” said Don Cook, chief marketing officer at iCare. “Our solution helps healthcare organizations achieve cost-savings by significantly cutting the time and resources traditionally spent on technology upgrades. This was one of the main drivers in our decision to partner with ZirMed, as it is another organization that values the same cutting-edge, cloud-based technology that we do.”
ZirMed optimizes fee-for-service healthcare business performance for more than 200,000 providers, helping them enhance their revenue cycle and drive bottom-line results. ZirMed offers clients a complete solution that solves key problems ranging from coding issues and claims rejections, to payer and patient reimbursement challenges, revenue leakage, data analysis challenges, and more.
“ZirMed’s business and clinical performance platform and iCare’s enterprise EHR have great synergy as both are native to the cloud and provide highly complementary functionality,” said Kim Labow, vice president of marketing at ZirMed. “We’re pleased to team up with a forward-looking company like iCare to help enterprise-level health systems navigate constant regulatory change and focus on patient care.”
