Veteran ambulatory software and outsourced billing services vendor athenahealth is taking the inpatient plunge by acquiring small hospital software vendor RazorInsights for an undisclosed sum.

RazorInsights serves the rural, critical access and community hospital markets and has 25 clients in 15 states. Both companies offer a suite of cloud-hosted clinical, financial and administrative software.

In a statement, athenahealth CEO Jonathan Bush said the move into inpatient care, which will focus on the 50-beds and under market, is a natural extension of its cloud services and heightened efforts to improve interoperability. Athenahealth serves about 59,000 providers.

Reed Liggin, president of RazorInsights, said teaming with athenahealth will bring new services to small hospitals to improve care delivery, reduce costs and better manage patient populations.

All RazorInsights clients attested to Stage 1 of the electronic health records meaningful use program and six had attested through October 2014 for Stage 2, according to the company.
