New investment will be used to solidify Kareo’s position as the leading provider of cloud-based solutions for small medical practices
IRVINE, CA and MIAMI BEACH, FL – January 23, 2014 – Kareo Inc., the leading provider of cloud-based medical office software and services for small medical practices, and Nexus EHR, a physician designed electronic health record platform, today announced the launch of a new cloud-based solution for medical practices. Nexus EHR is now integrated with Kareo’s Practice Management application and is available to Kareo’s current customer base of over 25,000 medical providers as well as new customers via Kareo Marketplace. Physicians with highly specific needs, like surgeons and cardiologists, now have a comprehensive, low-cost, cutting edge solution that enhances their ability to leverage cloud-based technology to manage both the clinical and business aspects of their practice.
"We understand that many specialists are looking for an EHR designed specifically for their unique needs and we are pleased to announce this new integration of Kareo Practice Management and Nexus EHR,” said Rob Pickell, Chief Marketing Officer at Kareo. “Kareo Marketplace solves a major issue for specialists who are often forced to use disjointed applications or “settle” for an integrated solution not specifically designed with them in mind.”
Physicians will use the Kareo Practice Management software to complete tasks such as creating patient records, scheduling appointments, and updating patient information. These data are then dynamically updated to the Nexus EHR eliminating double entry or manual entry. In a similar fashion, data entered in the EHR Superbill are automatically uploaded to the Kareo PM for speedy and accurate billing. This seamless integration reduces risk, lowers costs, and allows more time for physician/patient engagement.
“The unique needs of our customers require that clinical and management applications work harmoniously to create an environment that increases efficiency and reduces administrative burden,” said Tim Langan, Chief Operating Officer of Nexus Clinical. “Many potential solutions for physicians simply are not integrated on a level that enables end to end control. With Kareo we’ve created an integrated best-of-breed solution previously not available to specialists.”
“We are thrilled to become part of Kareo Marketplace and are looking forward to providing physicians with the most transparent, elegant, and comprehensive solution for their clinical and business requirements,” said Dr. Abhinav Gautam, Chief Medical Officer and co-founder of Nexus Clinical. “This new solution speaks to the commitment, focus, and success of the Nexus team in delivering the highest quality electronic health record platform on the market. The EHR honeymoon is over and many clients will begin to replace expensive, suboptimal systems with modern, affordable, and comprehensive solutions. The partnership between Kareo and Nexus enables many more practices to experience our highly affordable, clinician-centric solutions.”
