Greenway Medical Technologies and ZirMed Announce Partnership to Streamline Medical Practice Workflow

CARROLLTON, GA and LOUISVILLE, KY--(Marketwire - August 13, 2008) - Greenway Medical Technologies Inc., a leading provider of single-database, fully-integrated electronic health record (EHR), practice management and interoperability solutions, and ZirMed, a nationally recognized revenue cycle management firm, today announced a partnership to integrate ZirMed's suite of revenue cycle, financial service and decision-support solutions into Greenway's flagship EHR solution, PrimeSuite®. The integration further enhances PrimeSuite's ability to streamline a practice's workflow by infusing it with ZirMed's technology, which allows providers to increase the efficiency of their reimbursement procedures, improve cash flow and quickly adapt to ever-changing industry dynamics.

The Greenway and ZirMed partnership provides technology solutions that enhance and seamlessly integrate with a provider's workflow. The companies' shared commitments to workflow adaptive, rather than workflow disruptive, technology solutions highlight the partnership. With the placement of the ZirMed revenue cycle solutions within PrimeSuite, healthcare providers will gain the innovative technology tools necessary to overcome emerging burdens on clinical, financial and administrative aspects of their healthcare business.

"Greenway's partnership with ZirMed provides even more benefits to our extensive customer-base of 20,000 healthcare professionals nationwide," said Justin Barnes, vice president of marketing and government affairs at Greenway Medical Technologies. "Our goal is to continually improve the PrimeSuite solution with technology that can enhance the way our customers are able to run their practices, increase their profitability and more importantly, assist them in providing better patient care."

"Responding to the continued downward pressure on reimbursements, healthcare providers have embraced technology solutions to automate and improve business processes," said Chris Heller, ZirMed's vice president of business development. "We are excited about our partnership with Greenway because we believe that the integrated information management solutions offered through this partnership will allow healthcare providers to gain greater control over their revenue cycles and capitalize on tremendous opportunities for workflow efficiencies."
