Deal is expected to increase simplicity of EHR communication
Amalgam Rx, Inc., which specializes in digital therapeutics and patient support, has acquired Avhana Health, a clinical decision support (CDS) company with tools that are directly integrated into the electronic health record (EHR) workflow, for an undisclosed amount. The software as a service (SaaS)-based CDS tool allows for two-way interactions within the EHR and can help enhance provider workflow. Amalgam Rx
says that it
will expand Avhana’s CDS features to various therapeutic areas, with the goal of making doctors’ daily processes a bit smoother.
Doctors use Avhana Health’s services in an effort to support adherence to clinical quality guidelines—the aforementioned tool has been implemented in more than 150 provider groups and reportedly recognizes over $120 million a year in cost savings.
The deal marks
first ever acquisition.
