Netsmart Ranks in Top 50
of Healthcare Informatics 2017 HCI 100
Overland Park, Kan., June 5, 2017 – With continued growth in its client base and expansion to closely-aligned markets, Netsmart moved up four spots to #46 on the annual Healthcare Informatics HCI 100 list. Netsmart is the largest healthcare IT provider solely focused on integrating behavioral health and post-acute care with the rest of healthcare.
Companies are ranked on the list based on their annual revenue from healthcare IT products and services provided in the U.S. during the 2016 calendar year.
“It’s a great day when your company is publicly recognized for its growth,” said Netsmart CEO Mike Valentine. “We’ve spent the last year expanding our offerings - including acquisitions in the home care and long-term care communities − and adding associates to more strategically support our growing client base. This investment in resources and people is positively reflected in our climb up the list.”
In addition to expanding its post-acute client base and solution offerings, Netsmart has made significant investment in its hosting and revenue cycle management offerings, which is a vital component to growing existing business and earning new clients.
In 2016 Netsmart:
- Advanced and expanded its existing client communities through services such as hosting, revenue cycle management and continuous product training.
- Merged the Allscripts Homecare business unit into the Netsmart CareFabric® suite of solutions to better serve home health, palliative care and hospice providers.
- Acquired long-term/post-acute EHR provider HealthMEDX to provide technology solutions for continuing care retirement communities and assisted living, independent living and skilled nursing providers.
With an increase in its client base with the addition of post-acute providers, Netsmart now serves more than 24,000 home health, long-term care, private duty, hospice and human services organizations, including more than 500,000 care providers in all 50 states. The Netsmart platform enables more than one million distinct connections and supports more than 70,000 organizations through its affordable interoperability network.
“We’re growing because we truly believe in holistic care for individuals so it simply makes sense that we integrate everything across the spectrum of care from behavioral health and human services to post-acute care and beyond, Valentine said. “We connect all communities of care to enable collaboration between our clients as they work together to care for the whole person.”
Netsmart fosters a collaborative environment between its clients, and creates innovation and advancement as the knowledge and technology partner to serve more than 25 million individuals.
Development in the company is not limited to its client base and revenue. The Kansas-based organization has grown to more than 1,300 associates in its Overland Park headquarters as well as offices in Missouri, Ohio and New York.
As Netsmart continues to grow and expand into new and existing market segments, the company is making a tremendous impact on helping clients improve and progress the quality of healthcare to individuals across the full care continuum.
