Passport Health Communications announced this morning that it has acquired STAT Technologies. The Hazlet, NJ company offers Web-based inpatient and ambulatory applications for patient scheduling, eligibility verification, charge capture, transport management, physician portal, patient self-service, and an HIE platform.
Passport CEO Scott MacKenzie was quoted as saying in the announcement, “Scheduling is a natural expansion of the Passport eCare NEXT Suite. It enables hospitals to begin revenue cycle functions at the point the order is received from a physician office, and improve coordination when there are different systems between the hospital and outside physician offices. Within a hospital organization it supports coordination of schedules, precertification, and onboarding between all departments, facilities, and silos of patient information, where disparate scheduling tools and other IT systems often exist.”
Financial details of the acquisition were not disclosed. Passport said in the announcement that it expects to acquire additional companies this year.
