Products: For small physician practices: NaviNet EMR.
Why You Should Watch: NaviNet is new to the EHR game, having introduced its first combined EHR and practice management system just a year ago. But the company, formerly known as NaviMedix, is well-known among physician practices, hospitals, payers, and other healthcare entities for its extensive healthcare communications network that provides transaction services to more than 800,000 users. That network helps form the basis for care coordination services and provides a platform for a patient portal, both of which will be integral to anyone looking to create an accountable care organization.
A December 2010 acquisition of e-prescribing and mobile clinical messaging vendor Prematics added a mobile dimension and an e-prescribing piece, since renamed NaviNet Prescribe, and provides an integration challenge for NaviNet.
