HCA sells physician workflow software to Commure
Seven years after it bought PatientKeeper, HCA is selling the physician workflow business to healthcare technology startup Commure. The two companies, both of which are focused on solving challenges with interoperability, plan to close the deal at the end of the month.
“When the digitization of healthcare came about, it was supposed to help us with our workflows and make our lives better so we could spend more time with patients. But as you’ve seen over the last few years, everybody talks about burnout,” said Commure President Dr. Ashwini Zenooz, who recently joined the company after being chief medical officer for Salesforce. “We really need to focus on the provider experience as we think about interoperability, because it’s not just sharing data, it’s how do you share data in a way that’s useful.”
