ATLANTA, GA– September 30, 2016— Azalea Health, a leading provider of fully-integrated cloud-based healthcare solutions and services, announces the addition of southeast rural health care providers and facilities, including designated Rural Health Clinics (RHCs). The organizations are implementing Azalea® EHR and Azalea® RCM for an integrated healthcare management and medical billing solution.
Jefferson Hospital is a 37-bed acute care hospital, owned and operated by the Hospital Authority of Jefferson County and the city of Louisville, Georgia. Jefferson has been dedicated to serving their community residents since 1974, delivering both inpatient and outpatient care. They also operate three Rural Health Clinics (RHCs) which provide community-based primary health care to Jefferson and surrounding county residents. Jefferson is also a member of Georgia Hospital Association’s Center for Rural Health.
After an unsuccessful implementation with a previous vendor, Jefferson partnered with Azalea Health to roll out their user-friendly EHR Suite throughout their hospital-owned RHCs. “You amaze me with your EHR and we are grateful for the experience we’ve had so far with Azalea Health,” said Steve Widener, CEO of Jefferson Hospital. “We are very happy with our partnership with Azalea and we definitely recommend them for anyone who is considering rolling out an EHR in their facility.”

Piedmont Pediatrics is a member of the South Carolina Office of Rural Health (SCORH), a nonprofit organization dedicated to ensuring equitable access to quality healthcare in rural communities.
Earlier this year, Azalea Health was selected as the preferred SCORH vendor for medical billing and practice management. This partnership gives rural clinics and hospitals across South Carolina the opportunity to use Azalea’s technology-enabled healthcare solutions and managed services, which are particularly important in rural settings. As a SCORH constituent, Piedmont Pediatrics was able to gain access to the user-friendly Azalea® EHR and Azalea® RCM. “We are able to appreciate the overall cost-savings of a cloud-based solution to manage our workflow and do our billing,” said Karen Nolen, Office Manager. “We did not have that with our previous system which needed several pieces of expensive hardware to maintain.”
