HMS inks deal with Acadia

Joey Jacobs' most recent venture, Acadia Healthcare, has signed up with fellow Nashville firm HMS, according to an announcement released today.

HMS applications and modules, including Accounts Payable, General Ledger, Health Information Management, Patient Accounting, Pharmacy and Referral Tracking, will be rolled out to Acadia’s network of behavioral health facilities. Founded in 2005, Acadia is a rapidly growing provider of inpatient behavioral healthcare services with a network of facilities in 18 states.

Acadia chose HMS because its applications can scale to keep pace with Acadia’s growth, are easy to use, were priced competitively and because HMS has the operational experience and technology portfolio needed to support Acadia’s nationwide expansion.
