EverCommerce to Acquire DrChrono, a Leading Cloud-based SaaS Practice Management and EHR Solution
Acquisition would expand EverCommerce's suite of solutions in health services with a mobile-first platform designed for independent practices
DENVER, Nov. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today EverCommerce Inc. (Nasdaq: EVCM) ("EverCommerce" or the "Company"), a leading service commerce platform, announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire DrChrono Inc., a company developing an essential platform and services for modern medical practices. Based in Sunnyvale, California, DrChrono offers an all-in-one, cloud-based practice management, EHR, and billing solution to make healthcare more informed, more interactive, and more personalized. Completion of the transaction is pending regulatory review and other customary closing conditions and is expected to close before the end of November.
Founded in 2009, DrChrono is a cloud-based, medical platform serving more than 4,600 independent practices and 13,000 providers across medical specialties. DrChrono offers integrated EMR/EHR, practice management, revenue cycle management, payment acceptance, telehealth, and medical billing, and is at the forefront of mobile-first technology and medical care accessibility.
DrChrono advocates for the importance of seamless provider and patient experiences facilitated through integrated solutions. The platform is extensible through its robust API, enabling integration with adjacent solutions – like patient engagement and remote patient monitoring – and for customized features by healthcare IT developers. With its differentiated all-in-one EMR/EHR and practice management, platform-agnostic mobile and web-based capabilities, patient health records accessibility, and customizable add-ons through its API, DrChrono is positioning itself as a leading-edge innovator for the modern medical practice.
In a recent survey conducted by Updox, a patient engagement platform that is also an EverCommerce solution, 51% of consumers revealed that user-friendly technology is important for a good patient experience. Digital communications, medical record access, billing and payment capabilities, and virtual visits were all critical factors of patient engagement outside the practice. Since its founding, DrChrono has concentrated on digitally transforming administration and communication to provide consumers these digital conveniences while enabling providers to focus more on patient care.
“As the healthcare industry rebounds from the pandemic, there is increased focus on making care accessible and adaptable to maximize patient engagement,” said Matt Feierstein, president, EverCommerce. “DrChrono is a leader in mobile technology for healthcare providers. Patient preference for those convenient options continues to grow, making DrChrono an ideal complement for our EverHealth solutions group.”
“EverCommerce and DrChrono both share a commitment to helping small- and mid-size businesses thrive,” said Daniel Kivatinos, COO and co-founder of DrChrono. “We’re excited to align ourselves with EverCommerce and their suite of healthcare technology solutions to help us to provide additional value for our customers.”
Michael Nusimow, CEO and co-founder of DrChrono, said, “I’m excited for DrChrono to be a new engine for growth inside of EverCommerce.”
DrChrono will join EverCommerce's EverHealth solutions that serve more than 72,000 customers, streamline day-to-day healthcare practice operations, improve provider and administrative workflows, and modernize engagement with patients. The modern medical platform is expected to serve as a critical centerpoint of EverHealth’s integrated offerings for independent healthcare practices.
TripleTree is serving as exclusive financial advisor to DrChrono. Terms of the acquisition will not be disclosed.
