NORTH KINGSTOWN – Electronic medical records provider Amazing Charts Inc. has been acquired by Boston-based Pri-Med LLC, the company announced Monday.
Amazing Charts will operate as an independent subsidiary of Pri-Med and company founder Dr. Jonathan Bertman will continue to serve as president.
“Given the vast amount of knowledge and the pace at which practice recommendations change, providing real-time feedback to clinicians based on their current practice styles is critical,” said Bertman in a statement. “While other [electronic health records] vendors may try to find ways to sell EHR data to the highest bidder, we believe any use of this data must be ethical, with clear and consistent disclosure, and used to improve patient outcomes rather than allow advertisers to better target consumers.”
“And after being contacted by dozens of companies, including other EHRs, private equity firms and venture capitalists, I have no doubt that Pri-Med is the best possible partner for our clients, our employees, and most importantly, the patients for whom we all care,” added Bertman.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
