The Azalea Health mission is to improve patient care by providing the highest level of innovative technologies, solutions, and services to the healthcare community.
The founders of Azalea Health, while working at a medical laboratory company, observed that most EHRs were clunky, and physicians had a hard time understanding how to use them. As a result they were determined to develop a solution that would simplify the life of physicians and administrators.
They recognized the opportunity to build a healthcare IT solution that would be truly cloud-based and as simple to use as an email tool. Drawing on local university talent, they essentially created a technology incubator environment. The resulting cloud-based healthcare management and medical billing solution connects the clinical with the financial side of a practice and integrates easily with existing systems.
The company has grown consistently and has proven its technology and its business model. Azalea Health was recognized by Inc. Magazine in their annual Inc. 500/5000 as one of the nation’s fastest growing private companies and was recognized as a top 40 innovator by TAG (Technology Association of Georgia).
Azalea Health products provide continuity in workflow by seamlessly connecting the clinical side with the financial side. Its cloud-based architecture ensures a secure, scalable solution that grows with your needs. The agile software development method enables the Azalea Health team to respond rapidly to customer feedback and industry standards.
Azalea products have the flexibility to accommodate multiple specialties of any size practice, from solo physician to hospital systems. The simple, cloud-based Azalea EHR provides a comprehensive solution from scheduling and charting to billing and online CPOE. It is Meaningful Use certified, and Azalea RCM boasts a 98% accuracy rate, reducing claims denials and protecting the fiscal health of your practice.
Implementing the Azalea Health solution requires very little effort or resources due to its simple design and its cloud-based infrastructure. The Azalea team works closely with expert customer service, relying on direct access to customer input to continuously refine the solution.
The Future of Health IT & Azalea Health
Some vendors have not prepared their solutions to keep up with rapidly evolving billing methods, and many will have difficulty providing mobile applications for providers and their patients. As healthcare is becoming more interconnected, you will see some vendors are not able keep up with the interoperability needed between systems – mobile, wearables, and clinical devices.
The next generation EHR is lightweight and mobile-focused. Azalea Health’s development includes more tools for telemedicine, as well as enabling device makers, patients, and other systems to easily and securely connect with the Azalea Health platform.
We foresee that physicians will want to work more with a vendor that can help them not only with their EHR software, but also with how to navigate the complexity of the financial side of our healthcare system.
