IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 13, 2013
IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Kareo, Inc., a cloud-based
medical office software and services provider for small medical practices,
today announced the launch of a new solution center designed to help private
practices thrive in the current dynamic healthcare environment. Kareo
Marketplace™, the first of its kind available in the healthcare industry,
delivers private practices a curated selection of cloud-based applications and
value-added services that can help practices optimize operations, deliver
improved financial performance, accelerate adoption of electronic health
records, and drive outstanding patient engagement.
Kareo Marketplace reduces the uncertainty and risk small practices face in
finding, researching, and buying technology and services. Marketplace
represents a carefully selected collection of applications and services that
are ready for immediate purchase and implementation. Each solution in
Marketplace is selected based on the specific requirements of private
practices and is included only after thorough evaluation and testing by Kareo.
Options available today in Marketplace address such needs as provider
reputation management, practice marketing, document management,
specialty-specific EHRs, billing services, and consulting. All of the
solutions offered in Marketplace integrate seamlessly with and build upon
Kareo's medical office software platform.
"Today's private practices face a period of unprecedented change presenting
both opportunities and challenges," said Dan Rodrigues, CEO and founder of
Kareo. "We've built Marketplace because we believe that the right application
of technology and services can transform the management of private practices,
enabling significant improvements in practice efficiency, financial
performance, and the quality of patient care."
Kareo Marketplace includes a variety of applications, including ZocDoc – a
service that helps patients receive faster access to care and optimizes
doctors' schedules. With ZocDoc, patients can find a nearby, in-network
doctor, view their real-time availability, and instantly book an appointment
online. For healthcare providers, ZocDoc helps grow practices by connecting
them with new patients and improving efficiency.
"Healthcare providers are seeking integrated solutions to enhance their
practices and stay relevant with patients among changing technology," said
founder and COO Oliver Kharraz, MD. "This type of open, interoperable
partnership between ZocDoc and Kareo is just one way that we can collaborate
to meet the needs of today's practices and set them up for success.
Ultimately, when practices are successful, patients benefit by gaining
improved access to quality care."
Marketplace offers a variety of value-added services from leading companies,
including billing, consulting, and document management. Another recent
addition to Marketplace is Iron Mountain, a global provider of records
management and secure shredding services. Iron Mountain provides practices
with a collection of services that help them stay compliant with privacy and
security regulations, including HIPAA.
"Small physician practices often find themselves racing to catch up in the
process of EHR transformation," said Ken Rubin, senior vice president and
general manager of healthcare for Iron Mountain. "Working with Kareo, we can
give these practices access to 'enterprise-class' services in a package that
fits their budgets and resources, and accelerates their transformation from
paper records, freeing up valuable space for clinical operations that can

EHRs, each designed to address the unique requirements of one or more medical

ophthalmologists and optometrists.
"We have partnered with Kareo based on their demonstrated excellence in
product design and service delivery for thousands of physician offices, and
their commitment to tailor their products and services to the specialty
practices," said Chris Moore, CEO of Integrity Digital Solutions. "Now, as
part of Kareo Marketplace, we can provide an integrated offering for eye care
professionals that includes best-in-class solutions, streamlining the
administrative and clinical aspect of this specialty's workflow."

services is an excellent way to meet the opportunities and challenges of the
