Vitera Healthcare Solutions has announced their acquisition of SuccessEHS. Pending customary regulatory approval, the Birmingham, AL-based SuccessEHS will become a division of Vitera.
“Our acquisition of SuccessEHS supports our strategy for growth in the changing healthcare marketplace and is indicative of the tremendous progress Vitera has made over the past 18 months,” said Matthew Hawkins, CEO of Vitera. “The acquisition is a natural progression of Vitera’s strategic intent to be the leader in ambulatory healthcare information technology. We are committed to providing the solutions and services our customers need to succeed in this new era of healthcare.”
According to the news release the addition of SuccessEHS’s customer base will grow Vitera’s footprint to more than 10,500 medical organizations and over 415,000 medical professionals nationwide — including more than 85,000 physicians. The acquisition expands Vitera’s customer base of CHCs, including rural health centers, student health centers, HIV/AIDS clinics and Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC), as well as expands Vitera’s expertise in delivering solutions that meet the unique needs of these customers.
“This acquisition is going to bring out the best of both organizations,” said W. Sanders Pitman, CEO of SuccessEHS. “This is great news for our employees and for our customers. It allows us to build on Vitera’s longevity and growing strength in the industry, as well as the impressive infrastructure they’ve put in place to provide medical practices and CHCs with innovative EHR and practice management solutions. This helps us better realize our original mission — to make our customers successful.”
