Atlanta GA (PRWEB) June 07, 2014
Marshall I. Karr, a pioneer in the development of electronic medical records for the healthcare industry, has been named to the Board of Directors of the newly formed Atlanta-based healthcare IT and software development company, KaZee, Inc. announced Albert Woodard, KaZee CEO.
Karr, a Nashville resident, is managing partner for Karr Commercial, LLC, a commercial and residential Real Estate firm that is responsible for the renovation and historic preservation of many of Nashville’s landmarks and residences and a number of subdivisions in Nashville and the town of Franklin.
In the late 1990s Karr served as president and chief operating officer of Nashville-based Medical Information Management Systems, Inc. (MIMS) where he was instrumental in the development of PEARL, a computerized patient record system for the healthcare industry. The company was eventually sold to Atlanta’s Business Computer Applications (BCA). KaZee was spun off from BCA this past January.
Albert Woodard, the former CEO of BCA, who heads up KaZee, says, “Marshall Karr’s experience and reputation in the electronic medical records field will be invaluable to KaZee executives as we respond to unprecedented demand for healthcare services as a result of changes in patient populations, technology advances, government regulations and scientific breakthroughs.”
KaZee provides information technology solutions to the healthcare industry including electronic medical records, practice management, financial, administrative and accounting software packages to the healthcare industry along with a wide range of support services. KaZee systems are used to serve some 175,000 Texas prisoners and have saved taxpayers in that state nearly $1 billion over the last 10 years according to the Gartner Group, the world’s leading technology research and advisory company. A number of other state prisons and local jail systems are also using KaZee healthcare systems to provide care for prisoners in their systems including Illinois and the Salt Lake City jail system, among others. Its headquarters is located in the Buckhead area of Atlanta. For more information, visit http://www.KaZee.us.
