|November 1, 2010 – Silverhawk Capital Partners portfolio company Discovery Health Record Solutions recently completed the acquisitions of Regional Imaging and Copy Services, LLC based in Chesterfield, South Carolina and C&S Duplicating Services Inc. located in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Both companies provide medical record request fulfillment services including release of information, or ROI as mandated by HIPAA and the HITECH Act. |
Both Regional Imaging, primarily serving the Coastal Carolina area, and C&S with customers in Eastern and Middle Tennessee, were motivated to join Discovery in order to bring the company’s proprietary medical record processing and delivery capabilities, branded StatusNOW to their customers. As the healthcare industry continues to adopt electronic solutions, including the implementation of EMR systems, there is a growing need to offer more complex technical capabilities to providers and requestors of medical records like those innovated by Discovery.
“These acquisitions expand our market coverage and compliment our sales strategies as we already have regional sales executives either located in, or assigned to these areas,” remarked Discovery’s CEO and President Doug Hollman, “and we will begin to offer our StatusNOW technology to these customers right away, so that they may begin to see its benefits.”
These acquisitions are the second and third completed by Discovery during calendar year 2010 as part of its growth strategy.
