Echo is a new venture launched by HealthStream to deliver unique value for hospitals, health systems, ambulatory and retail facilities, medical practices, and post-acute facilities. Echo, A HealthStream Company, is the combination of two market leaders recently acquired by HealthStream: HealthLine Systems and Sy.Med Development. These two companies, complemented by unique HealthStream assets, establish Echo as the market leader in medical staff credentialing, payer credentialing, and provider enrollment, provider analytics, provider onboarding, and solutions to transform patient experiences at the first touchpoint with healthcare contact centers. As of the formal launch of Echo in October 2015, more than 2,000 healthcare organizations are already relying on the company’s powerful suite of products.
