Telemedicine hardware solution-provider Avizia is merging with telemedicine software provider Emerge.MD in a move that should deliver a complete telemedicine platform to the market. The platform will enable healthcare providers to use telemedicine to expand access to providers, quickly diagnose patients and improve their overall delivery of care. The combined company is named Avizia.
“Providers are clamoring for a packaged, whole solution that tightly integrates carts, peripherals, and software – all tied to their EHR and systems of record,” said Mike Baird, CEO of Avizia. “The wait is now over as the combination of Avizia and Emerge.MD results in the industry’s first fully integrated telemedicine solution.”
Avizia’s complete telemedicine solution combines video devices with clinical workflow management and HIPAA compliant communication software. The software integrates with hospitals’ existing EHR systems as well as provider and patient smartphones, tablets and laptops.
“While Emerge.MD’s software solutions have enabled many enterprise telehealth programs, this merger makes possible a fully integrated hardware and software platform,” said Emerge.MD Founder Dr. Shahram Partovi.
