The news: PatientPop is merging with healthcare cloud company Kareo to form Tebra—a digital health company that aims to bring an all-in-one platform for providers to run their practice and enable them to easily connect with patients.
Who are PatientPop and Kareo?
PatientPop helps doctors grow their practices via tech-enabled marketing strategies, cloud-based offerings, online scheduling, and an online platform to practice virtual care.
Meanwhile, Kareo provides software that supports electronic health records (EHRs) and billing for independent practices. It integrates other features like practice management, patient engagement, and connecting to third-party health apps and services.
Why PatientPop+Kareo’s tech is a lifeline to many private practices: PatientPop’s platform can help practices boost patient acquisition and retention, while Kareo’s tech provides a user-friendly EHR system and billing analytics to optimize private practice revenues.
Private practices’ patient volumes plunged due to the pandemic:
Tebra will alleviate the admin burden on physicians and allow private practices to keep up with digital health innovation—something their health system counterparts are actively leveraging to improve patient satisfaction and capture even more patients.
What’s next? The merger primes Tebra to facilitate private practice consolidation down the road.
