Procura to buy home health assets from 3M

VICTORIA, B.C. – Procura has announced its purchase of the assets of The Home Health System business unit of 3M Health Information Systems, Inc.

The 3M assets include a fully integrated clinical and back office solution for Home Health Care and Hospice. The system replaces paperwork, enhances clinical compliance, and delivers an Electronic Health Record (EHR) for the community.

Procura will assume responsibility for all existing 3M Home Health System client contracts.

“Acquiring the 3M home health assets is part of our strategic plan to further expand our global network of home health clients and bring additional product offerings to our client base,” said Warren Brown (pictured), President of Procura.

Darcey Trescone, Director U.S. Operations, noted that, “through this acquisition, we will enhance our ability to provide quality products, support and service to our Procura and 3M clients. We will grow and maintain both the 3M product and the Procura product. At every turn, we will leverage the respective strengths of the products to respond to the demands of a growing client base that needs innovative solutions to manage their organizations.”

Greg Martin, Chief Operating Officer, said, “the employees that will join us, bring to Procura the same passion for the sector, and depth of knowledge that are the hallmark of Procura staff. This cultural fit among a team of over 60 professionals creates one of the largest and strongest teams of dedicated Home Care software development in the world.”
