RALEIGH, N.C. & ANNAPOLIS, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- eCast Corporation, a leader in electronic medical records (EMR) software and clinical integration products and services, and kloudtrack®, a leader in Information Exchange (IE) and governance/risk/compliance (GRC) technologies, today announced a strategic relationship at the SIIA All About the Cloud conference in San Francisco, CA. This partnership will enable customers in healthcare/medical, pharmaceutical and related life science sectors to exploit the best of both companies’ core strengths through coordinated marketing, sales and services activities.
“Our partnership with kloudtrack® and their IE platform (branded as kloudexchange™) is an incredible opportunity for the marketplace,” said Peter Bechtel, president and CEO of eCast Corporation. “This is the first combination of a Health IE integrated with EHR/EMR that we have ever seen.”
