Net Health, a provider of cloud-based software for specialty medical providers, announces that it has acquired Casamba LLC, a provider of electronic medical record (EMR) solutions for physical, speech and occupational therapy providers and home health and hospice agencies.

The acquisition aims to strengthen Net Health’s ability to support post-acute care providers, as well as expand Net Health’s offerings linking providers across the continuum of care from hospital to home.

Casamba serves customers in skilled nursing and assisted living facilities, in outpatient clinics, and in home health and hospice settings, and augments Net Health’s presence in post-acute care. EMR and analytics products from both companies are in use in several facilities across the continuum of care, including large hospital chains and skilled nursing and assisted living facilities, home health and  hospice agencies, and wound care and other specialty clinics. 

Combined, these companies will enable healthcare providers to deliver a differentiated patient experience, improve clinical documentation, operate efficiently, bill successfully, and gain insight into the clinical care and business operations, according to a news release from Net Health.

“Healthcare providers across post-acute care settings are being challenged to deliver better patient experiences and outcomes at lower cost. By combining with Casamba, we strengthen our ability to deliver high-quality software and actionable analytics to these providers as they evolve to meet 21st century healthcare needs.”

— Josh Pickus, Net Health’s Chief Executive Officer

“I am delighted that we are bringing together two organizations that are passionate about improving post-acute care and have strong products and industry knowledge.”

— Ronnie Amrany, Founder and Executive Chairman of Casamba

“We share a vision of the future, including the opportunity to help caregivers and organizational performance through the use of advanced analytics. I’m confident that this will help Casamba’s customers build strong, effective businesses in the face of the changes affecting healthcare today and in the future.” 

— Billie Nutter, CEO of Casamba
