LENEXA, Kan. – Mediware Information Systems has acquired Fazzi Associates, a Northampton, Mass.-based provider of coding services to the home health and hospice market. Fazzi also provides consulting, training, benchmarking and research to more than 1,400 agencies across all 50 states and Washington, D.C. “The acquisition creates a unique alignment between two health care (companies)—one in innovative software, the other in outsourced services, consultation, and education,” Mediware stated in a press release. “The combined company will have a greater capacity to help post-acute and community-based providers increase efficiency and improve clinical, financial, and operational performance to advance patient care.” Mediware plans to maintain Fazzi’s brand and headquarters, and retain the company’s leadership team.
