Stratice Healthcare Selected by The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology to Demonstrate at the Interoperability Showcase at HIMSS Annual Conference


Company to Present eDMEplus™, the Nation’s First Solution for Fully Integrated HME/DME Electronic Prescribing from within a Physician’s Electronic Health Record (EHR) System

CARMEL, Ind. – Stratice Healthcare is pleased to announce the company has been selected as the sole HME/DME focused software service provider to present as part of the Interoperability Showcase at HIMSS 2015.

Taking place in Chicago, April 13-15, the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase is a live interactive demonstration where health IT solution providers collaborate to maximize the collective impact of their technologies. The newly re-imagined Interoperability Showcase will highlight seamless health information exchange in multiple care settings.

John Brady, CEO and Eric Tinsley, CTO of Stratice Healthcare, will be giving an in-depth product demonstration of the company’s proprietary eDMEplus platform. This unique electronic ordering platform enables healthcare providers to transmit patients’ HME/DME orders to a nationwide network of suppliers. The software integrates into electronic health record systems (EHRs), and is seamlessly embedded within the healthcare providers’ existing electronic workflow, thereby alleviating the inefficient and paper-driven HME/DME ordering, fulfillment and payer reimbursement process.

“Having a forum such as HIMSS 2015, to present on interoperability as it relates to DME/HME supplies is not only exciting for Stratice Healthcare, but it also represents an excellent launching point for the entire industry to discuss how continuing advancements in technology can shape the future of prescribing and fulfilling HME/DME orders,” said Brady. “We believe that as the HME/DME industry continues to adopt e-prescribing that interoperability will be a key driver in supporting what has been an underserved market.”

HIMSS Annual Conference is the largest health IT event in the industry. Healthcare professionals, clinicians and executives from around the world gathered to explore the value of health IT through education, networking and solutions – discovering new ways to advance innovation, make a greater impact and improve outcome.

Stratice Healthcare and NewCrop Join Forces, Integrate HME/DME E-Prescribing Platform Into Electronic Health Record Systems


CARMEL, Ind. – Stratice Healthcare, a leading healthcare IT company and developer of eDMEplus, and NewCrop, a premier provider of healthcare electronic prescribing services, have partnered to provide an integrated HME/DME ordering solution for electronic health record systems (EHRs).

As part of a nationwide rollout beginning in April, NewCrop’s 180-plus EHR platform will be integrated with eDMEplus, a proprietary, cloud-based electronic ordering system connecting healthcare providers with a nationwide network of over 10,000 HME/DME suppliers fulfilling patients’ HME/DME needs.

“This partnership is the beginning of a dramatic shift in the way HME/DME supplies are prescribed by care providers, fulfilled and ultimately delivered to a patient improving the continuity and quality of care,” said Jason Farmer, president of Stratice Healthcare. “We could not be more pleased with our partnership with NewCrop as a pioneer and industry leader in e-prescribing of patients’ medical needs.”

The eDMEplus software platform fills a current void in the industry for EHR-integrated HME/DME prescriptions, and replaces an otherwise inefficient, time-consuming process that currently relies on phone calls, faxes and a convoluted paper trail to prescribe and fill a physician’s patients’ HME/DME orders. Furthermore, the path of e-prescribing for HME/DME equipment and supplies provides the opportunity for physicians to accelerate achievement of Meaningful Use attestations.

“NewCrop has always focused on practice efficiency and patient safety.  The tightly integrated Stratice eDMEplus solution offers both,“ said Lawrence Susnow, M.D., NewCrop’s president and Chief Medical Officer.  “Even better, since the HME/DME suppliers value the operational efficiencies gained through eDMEplus and support the fulfillment process, there is no cost to the doctor.”

John Brady, CEO of Stratice Healthcare, believes this partnership comes at a tipping point in the industry, where physicians, suppliers, patients and regulatory agencies are looking for an integrated electronic solution to deliver necessary efficiencies in the HME/DME prescribing and fulfillment process.

“Stratice’s partnership with NewCrop paves the way to interoperability on behalf of the HME/DME industry,” said Brady. “Our collective efforts are focused on saving physicians valuable time, providing coordinated patient care, and finally delivering more appropriate and compliant electronic documentation supporting payers’ HME/DME claim reimbursement requirements.”

IEDC Press Release: Healthcare Tech Firm Grows in Hamilton County


Today the Indiana Economic Development Corporation released a statement supporting Stratice Healthcare’s expansion in Indiana.

CARMEL, Ind. (Feb. 18, 2015) – Stratice Healthcare LLC, a developer of an electronic ordering platform for the healthcare industry, announced plans today to expand its operations here, creating up to 43 new jobs by 2017.

The Indiana-based company will invest up to $710,000 in tax credits to accommodate an expansion of the company’s e-prescribing platform, to reconfigure its 3,500 square feet of office space in the Carmel City Center, and add an additional 2,000 square feet planned by the end of the year. With its growth, the company plans to meet healthcare industry demand for its electronic ordering software service, which allows healthcare providers to electronically transmit patient orders to a nationwide network of suppliers.

“With life science exports second in the nation and a rising status as a regional technology hub, Indiana stands out as the perfect location for companies like Stratice,” said Eric Doden, president of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation. “Operating at the intersection of healthcare and technology, Stratice gains the advantage of doing business near strong and growing industries, each benefiting from a stable tax climate and the a skilled workforce all here in a state that works.”

Stratice, which currently employs 15 full-time Indiana employees, has already begun hiring for IT, sales, marketing and professional positions. Interested applicants may apply by emailing their resume to careers@stratice.com.

“The unique combination of a talented local workforce and a vibrant, collaborative business community, particularly in the health and life sciences sector, made for an easy decision as we continue to expand in central Indiana,” said John Brady, chief executive officer and co-founder of Stratice. “Through our cloud-based platform, Stratice is poised to help lead the next chapter in innovation and interoperability for healthcare systems by forever changing the way home and durable medical equipment and supplies are prescribed for the end-user, which ultimately drives better patient care and outcomes.”

Founded in 2010, Stratice developed and operates eDMEplus, a patent-pending electronic ordering platform that electronically connects healthcare providers with home and durable medical equipment suppliers, filling patient orders ranging from oxygen and diabetic supplies to canes, crutches, wheelchairs and hospital beds. The company’s software as a service platform integrates directly with a healthcare provider’s electronic health record system, following a process similar to e-prescribing for medications. This added connectivity streamlines the fulfillment and reimbursement process for a network of thousands of suppliers nationwide.

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Stratice Healthcare, LLC up to $750,000 in conditional tax credits based on the company’s job creation plans. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. The city of Carmel supports the project.

“I am very pleased with the expansion and added jobs at Stratice, one of our fairly new high-tech companies in Carmel,” said Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard. “Their focus on using technology to more efficiently process prescriptions for medical equipment and supplies for home-based health care–which will improve the quality of patient care, reduce errors and claim denials–is an indication that Carmel continues to be a city that fosters an entrepreneurial spirit from which we continue to see many success stories.”

Growing companies like Stratice continue to choose Indiana for their job creation plans. In December, Memory Ventures, a portfolio of direct-to-consumer e-commerce brands, joined Governor Mike Pence to announce its plans to relocate its headquarters from Los Angeles, California to Fishers, creating 134 new jobs over the next few years.
