ASHEVILLE – Kansas-based Netsmart has acquired Ashville-based GPM, a Software-as-a-Service technology and services company, dedicated to supporting Long-term/Post-acute care (LTPAC).

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

LTPAC includes medical practices that provide medical care to geriatric patients – many of whom reside in skilled nursing facilities.

This acquisition extends the Netsmart CareFabric platform to deliver interoperable data sharing between long-term care facilities and the providers that treat and coordinate care for their residents.

GPM was founded in 2012 and has partnered with physicians and long-term care specialists to develop solutions that address the unique workflows of providers serving the LTPAC market.

GPM will bring GEHRIMED, a community-based LTPAC mobile electronic health record (EHR) platform, and CareTeam, a care coordination and messaging platform whose capabilities will be enhanced by its integration into the CareFabric platform with digitized, real-time progress note delivery.
