BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Sept. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- SuccessEHS has announced the acquisition of MediaDent®, a Practice Management, Electronic Dental Record (EDR) and Dental Imaging solution. MediaDent is the flagship product of Georgia-based MMD Systems Inc., which will operate as a new division of SuccessEHS. The addition of MediaDent will expand SuccessEHS's current offerings, which include an Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Practice Management solution with Integrated Medical Billing Services.
The incorporation of a full EDR into SuccessEHS's solution set underscores the company's commitment to the Community Health Center (CHC) market. SuccessEHS currently serves more than 190 CHCs, which offer a spectrum of medical, behavioral and dental services. To further support the mission of CHCs in providing integrated healthcare services, SuccessEHS plans to offer the MediaDent EDR and its existing EHR as an integrated solution for CHCs, in addition to offering both products on a stand-alone basis.
"The addition of MediaDent to our product offering marks an important milestone in our evolution as a company," said W. Sanders Pitman, President and CEO of SuccessEHS. "We have a long-standing relationship with MediaDent as a partner and this acquisition will allow us to further integrate our two products and provide more value to our customers. Our combined product and service offering will be unique to our marketplace and will enable our clients to provide patient care in a much more holistic way."
As a result of their existing partnership, MediaDent interfaces seamlessly with the SuccessEHS solution. With the further integration of the two products, SuccessEHS will offer providers the unique option of a single platform encompassing medical, behavioral and dental solutions. The consistency of the resulting single patient record will enable providers to better treat the whole person and deliver an uninterrupted patient experience.
In its stand-alone form, MediaDent will continue to exist as a full EDR for independent dental providers, and will also offer easy interface capabilities for clients with existing practice management and EHR/EMR systems. As with the fully integrated solution, dental-only clients will benefit from the SuccessEHS hosting infrastructure, which includes Software as a Service (SaaS), Turnkey and Hosted Turnkey setups. Furthermore, SuccessEHS will be one of very few vendors to offer independent dental practitioners a fully cloud-based EDR, including imaging, via its SaaS hosting option.
"The benefits of coming under the auspices of SuccessEHS are many," noted Scott McLaughlin, President of MMD Systems, Inc. "Existing and future MediaDent customers will reap the benefits of a powerful technological infrastructure, a strong support staff and the stability of working with a closely held, private company, while the joining of our products provides a complete solution for healthcare providers attempting to unite disparate care settings."
