HealthTech QGenda Acquires OpenTempo to Boost Provider Workflow Platform

by Holly Beilin

Atlanta-based QGenda, which provides healthcare scheduling software, has acquired fellow healthtech startup OpenTempo. The latter provides workflow tools for clinical management and efficiency.

OpenTempo’s employees will remain with the combined company and maintain their Burlington, Vermont office.

QGenda’s cloud-based platform helps with provider scheduling, time tracking, and compensation management for 3,000 healthcare provider customers across the country, including 90 of the 100 Becker’s Greatest Hospitals list.

Meanwhile, OpenTempo provides complementary tools in clinical capacity management — optimizing the resources, time, and expenditure of providers who want to improve their efficiency. The company was founded the same year as QGenda (2006) and supports over 25,000 providers across 150 clients.

They have raised about $1.3 million in venture funding, according to Crunchbase.

“The ongoing physician shortage in the US has never been more acute,” said Andy Comeau, CEO of OpenTempo, in a statement. “We partner with our customers to bring operational clarity to physician utilization. Joining forces with QGenda will allow us to work with more organizations to help them maximize their clinical capacity.”

Some of the two companies’ services, such as scheduling software and time tracking, are duplicates, but they can now combine the features to offer a more comprehensive workforce solution.

QGenda’s first acquisition was emergency medicine and urgent care scheduling platform Tangier. Closed in 2017, that deal added a Baltimore, MD office to the healthtech company’s ranks.

“As we increase our footprint across the market, we are poised for continued strong growth over the next several years,” said Greg Benoit, CEO of QGenda. The company has been named as one of Georgia’s top 40 fastest-growing middle-market companies for three years in a row.
