Greenway and Harland Technology Services Form Alliance to Deliver Managed Health IT to Ambulatory Practices
Coordinated Deployment and Maintenance of IT Solutions and Infrastructure Eases Transition to Value-Based Medicine
CARROLLTON, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Greenway Medical Technologies announces an alliance with Harland Technology Services to support small to medium-sized ambulatory healthcare practices in implementing advanced health information technology (HIT) solutions.
As the industry continues to transition from a fee-for-service to value-based medicine reimbursement structure, HIT is becoming increasingly important. Ambulatory practices have a pressing need to electronify medical records and share them with patients, payers and other providers, yet often lack sufficient internal IT expertise for implementation and ongoing management. Customers opting for Greenway's PrimeSUITE® electronic health record (EHR), practice management and interoperability platform can now engage Greenway® and its resource partner, Harland Technology Services, for turnkey implementation. Post-implementation, Greenway provides ongoing PrimeSUITE support in coordination with Harland Technology Services' IT infrastructure maintenance and management for optimum performance.
"Many ambulatory practices are beginning to feel sidelined as payer models evolve with accompanying expectations that practices will adopt the technology they need to keep pace," said Jared Lisenby, Greenway vice president of business development. "With the support of a trusted services provider like Harland Technology Services working closely with Greenway, those practices can realize more efficient and smooth transitions in adopting beneficial technologies."
Harland Technology Services' national footprint supports consistent Greenway implementation in virtually any U.S. location. "With service centers in 45 states and more than 165 and field service technicians strategically located in metro areas, Harland Technology Services is up to the task of helping Greenway meet the needs of ambulatory practices coast-to-coast," said Pat Dixon, Harland Technology Services' director of business development. "We look forward to working with Greenway to give these practices the IT infrastructure they need not just to survive, but to thrive."
