After obtaining an initial interest in Chorus (formerly MDSERVE) with health center partners in 2001, RCHN CHF grew the company and in 2008 became the sole owner.
“We are impressed with the depth and breadth of Chorus’ offering to the health center market, and excited about the opportunity to work with Chorus’ clients,” said Bill Young, President and CEO of CySolutions. “The company will remain committed to helping CHCs implement affordable and appropriate HIT.”
Bill Young will continue to serve as CySolutions’ CEO and will also serve as the interim CEO of Chorus and Chairman of the Board. A.J.
