Aprima Acquired by Austin Medical Services Company

Richardson-based Aprima Medical Software has been acquired by Austin’s eMDs, Inc. Aprima provides electronic health record, practice management, and revenue cycle management to ambulatory care organizations. The deal makes eMDs a top five health services provider used by more than 63,000 providers and over 26,000 hospitals worldwide.

“eMDs’ acquisition of Aprima represents an exciting growth opportunity for both of our businesses,” said Derek Pickell, eMDs CEO via statement. “The unique combination of our technologies and services prepares us to offer the most powerful and comprehensive portfolio of solutions available—and that means greater impact, increased productivity, and less operational burden for healthcare providers. Our bottom line is about facilitating the best patient outcomes, and together our companies clear the path for providers to do their best work while enhancing their financial strength.”

Aprima will operate as Aprima, an eMDs company until it is fully integrated, and will be headquartered in Austin. Pickell will be the CEO of the combined organization and current Aprima CEO Michael Nissenbaum will serve as an advisory role during the integration.
