LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SimplePractice, an EngageSmart (NYSE: ESMT) solution and industry-leading platform simplifying the health and wellness experience for more than 178,000 solo and small group practitioners, announced it has entered into a strategic agreement to acquire assets of Luminello, an electronic medical record and practice management platform supporting thousands of solo and small group psychiatrists, psychiatric nurse practitioners, psychologists and other prescribing medical professionals.
“We are thrilled to work closely with the Luminello team who support this critical segment of the mental health market. We are excited about the opportunity to bring the value of SimplePractice to this important segment and we look forward to bringing the benefits of SimplePractice to Luminello's customers,” said SimplePractice President Jonathan Seltzer. “Demand for mental healthcare, particularly in the psychiatry segment, is unprecedented. We are humbled to serve and will continue to innovate on behalf of this critical group of medical professionals within the healthcare system.”
The Luminello deal is expected to enable SimplePractice to expand its presence in the psychiatric segment of the mental health market. By offering a greater range of functionality for its growing practitioner base, SimplePractice expects to accelerate growth with multi-disciplinary group practices. To solve more complex and acute mental health diagnoses, a growing number of group practices include both prescribers and non-prescribers. Luminello offers distinct workflows, features and functionality, including e-prescribe, which when rolled out have the potential to drive higher value for all practitioners and unlock the potential for serving multi-disciplinary group practices. This transaction is also intended to increase the value of new offerings SimplePractice has developed to alleviate the administrative burden of working with Health Plans, Managed Care Organizations and Employee Assistance Programs on behalf of independent practitioners to continue to make mental health more easily accessible— particularly for patients whose conditions require medication.
“Both SimplePractice and Luminello were founded by clinicians looking to simplify the business of running an independent solo or small group mental health practice,” said Ken Braslow, MD, Founder, Luminello. “Today, we remain equally committed to removing the administrative burdens that practitioners face and look forward to combining the strength of our collective experience to serve even more practitioners and their patients.”
Luminello’s strength in serving prescribers will add to SimplePractice’s deep expertise in supporting mental health practitioners. Bringing together these industry-leading offerings will create meaningful value for current and future customers, as well as their patients.
