The news just came out that Office Practicum EHR, created by Connexin Software, has gotten a $6 million investment from Bluff Point Associates:
Connexin Software, Inc., publisher of the industry-leading Office Practicum® pediatric electronic health records (EHR/EMR) and practice management (PM) system, today announced that it has received a multi-million dollar strategic investment from Bluff Point Associates, a Connecticut-based private equity firm.
Looks like we can add this EMR investment to our list of EMR and healthcare IT investments in 2011. I find it interesting that Office Practicum EMR has been able to make their way as a specialty specific EMR. I’ve longed believed in the specialty specific EHR approach. This is even more important when we’re talking about certain specialties such as pediatrics and OB/GYN which have quite different care needs.
I predict we’ll see more and more investments in specialty specific EHR companies like this one.
