We look forward to joining the team and bringing together our industry-leading knowledge, best practices, and service capabilities to more healthcare providers across the country."

"The future of healthcare is technology, and everyone from clinicians to hospital administrators to patients will see their routines and processes impacted by new developments and advancements," Grana added. "New technology will always require support, training, and optimization for success. HCTec has been a pioneer in this industry, and adding Talon's expertise furthers our goal of shaping the future of healthcare IT."
