EMPA Webinar Thursday, March 9

March 8, 2017

Dear Quatris customer,

We’d like to invite you to attend a GE webinar about a new offering, Electronic Medication Prior Authorization (EMPA), on Thursday, March 9.

Clinical teams collectively spend more time on average dealing with prior authorizations than any other interaction with health plans..[1] EMPA helps increase efficiency by reducing the time your practice spends on medication prior authorizations and helps enhance care quality by expediting the approval process for patients. One practice who participated in the EMPA limited availability program saved their nurses over 10 hours per prescribing provider in the first three days.2

Register for Thursday’s webinar to learn more.

Save time with EMPA

DATE: March 9, 2017
TIME: 2:00PM-3:00PM EST | 11:00AM-12:00PM PST

Webinar Registration Link

Once finalized, the recording will be posted to the GE Service Portal and we will provide a link to it on Podio.

We hope you will join us and learn more about this exciting new product offering.

Regards,

Quatris Health

Quatris Health Announces Acquisition of HealthSystems

BEDFORD, TX – March 1, 2017 – Quatris Health (“Quatris”), a provider of specialized healthcare software and database solutions, as well as hosting, software maintenance and support services for small and medium sized physician practices, announced today that it has acquired Atlanta based HealthSystems.  Quatris, a portfolio company of Seaport Capital, is the largest indirect channel provider of services, products and software maintenance for GE Healthcare’s Centricity Practice Solution to small and medium sized physician practices. The senior HealthSystems management team, Maurice Rosenbaum and Larry Stoumen, invested in the transaction and will remain with Quatris going forward. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“We believe that Quatris and HealthSystems are a great fit for each other,” said Quatris CEO Mark Spates. “Maurice and Larry have built a company with an impressive roster of customers and a tremendous organization to support those customers.  With the combination of Quatris Health’s and HealthSystems’ proprietary software and expert services, our physicians will have direct access to the full range of cutting edge solutions available to Centricity users.  We aim to exceed expectations for all our customers so that those practices continue to have a foundational IT solution that keeps pace with our ever-changing industry”

“We believe Quatris provides an excellent solution for our customers,” said HealthSystems CEO Maurice Rosenbaum. “Our two organizations have known each other for a number of years and Quatris has a very similar philosophy to HealthSystems – the importance of our customers and the singular focus of providing the best product and service experience.  We look forward to maintaining and growing that level of support in the future for all our customers and are enthusiastic about working with the Quatris team going forward.”

Seaport Capital Partner Bob Tamashunas agreed, saying, “The HealthSystems acquisition provides added scale for Quatris as the company pursues additional growth initiatives.  Quatris’ management team, strong service oriented organization, relationships with its technology partners and industry reputation will continue to provide a foundation for the company to grow in the future.”
