MatrixCare and WoundRounds Announce Strategic Partnership

Integration of Certified EHR Platforms Leads to Superior Clinical Outcomes

SCHAUMBURG, IL and BLOOMINGTON, MN--(Marketwired - Oct 23, 2013) -  MDI Achieve, provider of MatrixCare™, the fastest growing, certified Electronic Health Record solution for the long-term care and senior living continuum, and WoundRounds®, the leading solution for wound management and risk prevention, announced a partnership to provide superior clinical and economic outcomes.

Wounds represent one of the greatest drivers of costs, risk, and liability for post-acute care facilities. This partnership will enable long-term care providers to consistently and efficiently deliver high quality wound care by leveraging the strengths of both MatrixCare and WoundRounds.

MDI Achieve President and Chief Executive Officer John Damgaard commented, "The integration of MatrixCare and WoundRounds ensures that important clinical data from the wound care process is populated in the EHR, where it can be leveraged to improve the coordination of care and to drive clinical decision support. This partnership is another example of our industry-leading commitment to interoperability through our MatrixCare Connections initiative."

WoundRounds Chief Executive Officer Mike Diamond said, "Integrating WoundRounds with MatrixCare delivers a powerful solution for post-acute facilities to provide the best possible patient care with reduced costs and risk." Diamond adds, "Integration with MatrixCare will allow our customers to manage wound outcomes more effectively and focus on what they do best -- enhancing the resident's quality of life."

WoundRounds integration will be accomplished using MatrixCare Connections, a unique and innovative program recently introduced by MDI Achieve. The MatrixCare Connections program will formally certify the interoperability between MatrixCare and third-party systems and service organizations that are critical to providers, ensuring the integrity of information flows that often include Protected Health Information. MatrixCare Connections provides an open, cloud-based platform that supports integration between MatrixCare and third-party applications, devices, and systems, allowing providers to aggregate data from across the LTPAC continuum into the MatrixCare EHR.
