ModMed® Acquires Klara® Practice & Patient Collaboration Platform Maker

BOCA RATON, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ModMed® acquired Claire®, a leader in patient communication and collaboration whose platform gives patients more control over their healthcare experience and practices to increase efficiency. Klara’s platform is designed to enable collaboration and communication between practice and patient, including how patients discover, select and engage with a provider. The ability for practices and patients to collaborate digitally has never been more important.

“We are in the midst of one of the biggest shifts in healthcare and Klara is a leading innovator toward a more patient-centric experience,” said Dan Cane, CEO of ModMed. “Frankly, we think this is a new category. We see a future where unified collaboration platforms will create a more convenient, frictionless environment – ​​where conversations and the data they contain flow directly through EHR and PM systems while connecting to patients, practices and to third-party providers such as pharmacies, laboratories and insurance companies. We believe this more convenient, frictionless environment can fundamentally improve interactions, engagement, and ownership of healthcare outcomes across the entire ecosystem.

Between the pandemic, staffing shortages, population growth and the rise of aging baby boomers, healthcare workers are being burned out at an alarming rate. Coupled with growing consumer demand for technologies that help patients take a more active role in their care, the healthcare industry can benefit from innovative solutions that better support the medical community and further empower patients.

“ModMed is well known for its strong focus on health technology research and development and for its customer-centric approach to helping providers create efficiencies and save time,” said Simon Bolz , co-founder of Klara. Dr. Simon Lorenz, also co-founder of Klara, added: “We look forward to leveraging our expertise as well as technology and working together to deliver even better patient-centric innovations to continue improving the experience of all patients.

Cane continued, “We are more than excited to help shape this next frontier which has the potential to ease pressures on healthcare workers, give patients greater control and improve collaboration in healthcare. healthcare industry-wide.”
