Procura Healthcare Software has recently announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Suncoast Solutions. Procura provides their service to more than 4,200 customer sites, which include home health agencies, community care agencies, hospices, and residential care agencies in the United States, Canada, and Australia. The company expertises in helping providers improve back office efficiency, scheduling, and coordination of care delivery.
Suncoast Solutions which is based in Florida specializes in hospice management products and serves roughly 100,000 hospice patients annually. Procura in its deal is purchasing both Suncoast’s technology and customer assets.
Suncoast is the technology arm of Empath Health, a nonprofit, integrated network of care providers which is specializing in chronic and advanced illnesses.
Simultaneously, Procura and Empath are creating an advisory board for home care and hospice. Empath board members will help to determine how new and forthcoming hospice and home care rules & regulations at the local and federal levels might affect product development and the companies stated.
According to the official announcement, the Suncoast teams that are already in place will continue to serve its customers.
The acquisition is expected to close by July 31.
