Tamarac, Florida, November 9th, 2016 – DW Healthcare Partners (“DWHP”), a healthcare-focused private equity firm, is pleased to announce an investment in Prime Education (PRIME) of Tamarac, Florida.
PRIME is a multi-awarded healthcare education company and a recognized national pioneer in quality improvement continuing education (CE). With a 22-year history of providing inter-professional continuing education (IPCE) across federal, military/VA, payer, provider, academic, and other settings, PRIME engages clinicians, patients and consumers in tethered education to improve coordination of care and better outcomes.
Jay Benear, MD, Co-Founder and Managing Director of DWHP, is a medical oncologist who has served in various leadership roles with US Oncology. “When I was at US Oncology,” Jay stated, “we worked hard to create technology information exchanges. We found early adopters, but struggled getting established clinicians to use these systems. One of the interesting aspects of PRIME is its respect and adaptability for learning preferences – the dichotomy between traditional and tech-driven learning environments. PRIME is an educational company, but it is really a learning and change catalyst.”
Andrew Carragher, Co-Founder and Managing Director of DWHP, said, “PRIME’s use of practice data for healthcare improvement and applied educational innovation in systems-based care are fundamental game-changers, as proven again and again through their results published in medical literature. We look forward to contributing to PRIME’s continued growth in improving outcomes for patients, families, clinicians, and communities.”
“The opportunity to partner with DWHP advances PRIME’s mission to support and sustain measurable change in health outcomes,” noted Kathleen Moreo, RN, BSN, BHSA, CCM, Cm, CMDS, Founder and CEO of PRIME. “Our goal is to continue impacting public health priorities and national healthcare initiatives through our learning solutions. We are energized by the vast expertise of the DWHP management team to assist us in these critically important objectives.”
