Bamboo is a symbol of strength, flexibility, and health. The new company name reflects the combined company’s commitment to deliver whole person care coordination to improve health outcomes. Bamboo Health leverages Appriss Health’s and PatientPing’s existing network to deliver interoperable, cloud-based, care coordination software and analytics solutions, embedded within clinical workflow.

Bamboo Health supports more than 2,500 hospitals, 37 payers, 7,800 post-acute facilities, 25,000 pharmacies, and 45 state governments. The company already reaches more than one million acute and ambulatory providers in their workflow through integrations into hundreds of EMR vendors, every national pharmacy chain, and nearly every independent pharmacy system vendor. This extensive infrastructure and network support the exchange of applications, information, and actionable insights between these providers, health plans, and state governments in more than one billion patient encounters per year.
