LeadingAge Silver Partner with CAST Focus MatrixCare expands its electronic health record (EHR) offerings.

LeadingAge Silver Partner with CAST Focus MatrixCare® has acquired SigmaCare, a leading electronic health record (EHR) vendor for the long-term, post-acute care market based in Manhattan. MatrixCare provides EHR and related solutions to more than 12,000 facility-based senior care settings and over 2,000 home care agency offices throughout the United States.
 
“Serving facility-based operators and home health, home care, and hospice operators nationwide, SigmaCare is the dominant player in the Greater New York area, which is a strategic focus for us,” said John Damgaard, President & CEO of MatrixCare.
 
“Their deep understanding of issues affecting local operators, such as Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) and multiple regional health information exchanges (HIEs), will further strengthen our spectrum-wide solutions for managing the health and wellness of US seniors and will help us better support New York area providers as we navigate the transition to a fee-for-value healthcare system together,” said Damgaard. “We’re confident this acquisition will benefit customers of both organizations.”
 
SigmaCare customers will immediately be able to take advantage of MatrixCare’s full solution set. MatrixCare is a Delaware corporation headquartered in Bloomington, MN.
