The PruittHealth team is very excited to move forward with MatrixCare as our partner.”
PruittHealth joins the growing list of leading LTPAC providers upgrading to MatrixCare to take advantage of better interoperability, better ease of use, better analytics, better service, better long-term vendor stability, and better outcomes performance.
