Duet Health, founded in 2009, helps hospitals, health systems and providers better communicate and engage with their patient populations through multi-platform software products. Its software allows physicians and administrative staff members to send secure text, image and video messages, hold secure image libraries, retrieve on-call schedules and directories and more, according to a news release.
“This is a game-changer for our clients,” said Ann Barnes, MedData CEO, in a statement. “This acquisition immediately gives hospitals and providers access to some of the best tools available and a technology platform that will extend their reach and transform their approach to patient engagement. Coupled with our suite of patient-focused services, including eligibility and enrollment, third party liability, and patient reimbursement, clients have a more complete solution to deal with the growing issue of patient responsibility.”

Duet Health's clients include Harvard Medical School, Summa Health System, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Ohio Department of Medicaid and other health systems, pediatric providers, pharmacy providers and general health education.
“Joining MedData provides us the unique opportunity to be introduced to a wider audience and become even more integrated into the healthcare provider workflow,” said Jeff Harper, CEO and co-founder of Duet, in a statement. “Delivering impactful solutions that improve outcomes, increase patient satisfaction, and ultimately boost productivity and ROI will continue to be our focus — but MedData gives us the ability to better scale development and deliver solutions faster to our clients.”
Duet was previously owned by Baird Capital, which was organized, with fellow healthcare marketing services portfolio companies, into Myelin Communications.
