Houston-based Prognosis Health Information Systems Inc. is acquiring Creative Healthcare Systems Inc., based in Springfield, Mo.
Creative Healthcare Systems developed MedGenix, a financial management and patient accounting system. Prognosis developed ChartAccess Comprehensive EHR, an electronic medical-records system. The acquisition will allow Prognosis to add 18 new modules to its health-record system.
“Hospitals today — both big and small — are seeking to implement comprehensive, enterprise-wide solutions that can help them optimize both their clinical and financial operations,” Jay Colfer, executive vice president of client solutions for Prognosis, said in a statement. “With this acquisition, Prognosis will be able to do just that.”
