2018 MedTech Breakthrough awards recognize integrated, cloud-based EHR built for rural providers as a top solution in the healthcare industry
ATLANTA, GA – June 7, 2018 – Azalea Health, a leading provider of fully-integrated cloud-based healthcare solutions and services, is proud to announce that it has received the 2018 MedTech Breakthrough Award for Best Electronic Health Record Solution.
“We’re grateful to stand beside such an esteemed group of healthcare leaders and the opportunity to share our story with even more rural and community-based providers,” said Baha Zeidan, founder and CEO of Azalea Health. “We are only one of a few cloud-based health IT organizations focused on this underserved market. Our EHR platform fully integrates with billing and telehealth, so we’re one step closer to providing rural hospitals and physicians with an honest 360-degree view of the continuum of care for a patient.”
Recent research from iVantage Health Analytics found that 41 percent of rural healthcare facilities are operating at a negative margin. With a low cost of entry, Azalea Health provides rural markets with a cloud-based solution that improves care coordination and enables providers to meet strict regulatory compliance. In turn, critical access hospitals, community-based hospitals and ambulatory practices are able to capitalize on Quality Payment Program (QPP) and Medicaid Meaningful Use government incentive programs.
The annual MedTech Breakthrough awards receive global nominations, including 3,000 submissions in 2018 alone. The electronic health record category is one of its most competitive marquee categories. Judges are senior-level health, medical and technology professionals who have worked in the MedTech space such as journalists, analysts and technology executives.
