St John HealthPartners Signs Agreement for Clinical Software From Cielo

Cielo MedSolutions, a provider of healthcare software, has announced that St John HealthPartners has signed a purchase agreement to acquire licenses of the web-based Cielo Clinic software.

The Cielo Clinic is a clinical quality management system that proactively manages the care needs of medical practice and health system patients through a patient registry, a clinical decision support engine and population management functionality.

The newly-signed agreement allows St John HealthPartners to acquire the Cielo Clinic software not only for the primary care clinics operated by St John Health, but for the network of affiliated, private medical practices also included in St John HealthPartners, said Cielo MedSolutions.

Jim Price, chairman and co-founder of Cielo MedSolutions, said: "We're working really closely with the St John HealthPartners team. This continues to be more of a partnership than a customer-vendor relationship. We're trying to listen carefully and to incorporate feedback every step of the way. Working with St John has already helped make us a better software provider."
