NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Qualifacts Systems, Inc., announced today that the company has acquired Mitchell & McCormick’s behavioral health line of business. Mitchell & McCormick’s behavioral health customers will transition to Qualifacts’ certified complete electronic health record CareLogic Enterprise over the next few months. M&M has experienced significant growth in the public health vertical and, in this era of healthcare reform, has made a strategic decision to focus on that segment of the market.
“The investments in Meaningful Use certification, DSM-5, ICD-10 and ongoing state reporting are big commitments”
According to Qualifacts President and CEO David Klements, myriad product investment pressures from today’s rapidly changing healthcare environment are putting pressure on all EHR vendors and forcing executives at these companies to consider whether the best long-term path is to remain independent or not.
“The investments in Meaningful Use certification, DSM-5, ICD-10 and ongoing state reporting are big commitments,” says Klements. “As a result, the behavioral health EHR market is consolidating, and Qualifacts is taking the opportunity to expand through acquisition in key markets like the State of Georgia where Mitchell & McCormick have a strong customer base.”
M&M was looking for a company that shared its commitment to customer service, had a strong reputation in behavioral health and would provide a smooth transition for their clients.
“We selected a vendor we respect and trust so we can focus on our more than 150 public health customers,” says Mark Bennett, executive vice president of M&M. “We wanted a company we knew would take really good care of our customers. Qualifacts’ commitment to behavioral health, their size and track record of fast, accurate implementations made them the right fit for us.”
M&M customers will be transitioned to the CareLogic platform prior to the ICD-10 effective date.
