Azalea Health Acquires Data Analytics Vendor dashboardMD to Deliver EHR-Based Business Intelligence

September 8, 2021

Cloud-based Healthcare IT companies join forces to empower providers with insightful and actionable healthcare analytics now accessible straight from their Electronic Health Records

Azalea Health Innovations Inc. (Azalea Health or Azalea), a leading provider of cloud-based patient management and health IT solutions, today announced its acquisition of dashboardMD, an innovative cloud provider of business intelligence reporting solutions and healthcare analytics. The acquisition pairs two visionaries of healthcare IT in a shared pursuit of better patient outcomes through technology and data-augmented clinical care.

Azalea Health is best known for leading the disruption in the electronic health record (EHR) market with its fully interoperable, cloud-based EHR solution, including telehealth and revenue cycle management (RCM) solutions, to provide end-to-end patient management from intake to after-care, with easy coding and billing support along the way. According to KLAS, Azalea was one of only two EHR providers to gain market share during the pandemic in 2020.

dashboardMD is pulling the healthcare industry into the data age with its integrated operational, financial and clinical analytics solutions, placing unparalleled, insightful and actionable intelligence in the hands of clinical and operations teams. dashboardMD’s data-based solutions, including Population Health Management, Clinical Analytics, Financial Analytics and Operational Analytics modules help improve care management, raise clinical quality management (CQM) measures, and facilitate more efficient resource utilization and higher profitability.

The acquisition is about much more than just assimilating complementary technologies; Azalea Health Co-founder and CEO Baha Zeidan, and dashboardMD President and CEO Jose Valero, will join forces to shape a shared vision for the future of the newly-augmented Azalea Health and lead the expanded Azalea team. Zeidan will remain as Azalea Health’s CEO and Valero will assume leadership of Azalea’s advanced data analytics, Azalea Insights, as Director of Analytics.

Both CEOs recognize the tremendous synergy this union will bring to the vanguard of healthcare IT. “I’ve been looking for just the right EHR partner that can fully harness the powerful analytics capabilities that our company, alone, can offer,” said dashboardMD President and CEO Jose Valero. “With Azalea’s proven record of displacing legacy EHR providers with its nimble and customizable one-patient-one-record, cloud-based approach, I knew I had found the right fit for dashboardMD.”

“Incorporating dashboardMD’s unrivaled analytics capabilities in our clinician-friendly EHR and bringing Jose in to lead Azalea’s data analytics practice will empower providers to better manage clinical quality measures and have enhanced visibility into their revenue,” said Azalea Health CEO Baha Zeidan. “We couldn’t be happier that Jose recognized Azalea as the EHR best positioned to supercharge the healthcare analytics space and help the medical field take a giant step forward through our unparalleled joint offering.”

Following the acquisition, the Azalea team and the dashboardMD team will join forces.
