CHARLOTTE, N.C., — (BUSINESS WIRE) — Eye Care Leaders (ECL) today announced the acquisition of iMedicWare, a provider of integrated EHR, practice management, ambulatory surgery center software, and optical solutions designed exclusively for eye care practices. ECL, an industry leader of ophthalmic and optometric practice performance solutions, has named Arun Kapur, the founder and CEO of iMedicWare, to head their portfolio of technology solutions, including EHR, practice management, and other software.

With more than a decade in the industry, Kapur is a trusted name in ophthalmic software and technology. He brings to his new role as the leader of ECL’s software business his NJ-based team, extensive eye care experience, customer service focus, and a strong record of proven results.

“As partners, we share the same vision of providing our customers with dynamic applications and services suitable for the continuously evolving ophthalmic landscape,” says Kapur. “I look forward to leveraging ECL’s resources and innovation to complement and enhance not only iMedicWare’s top-of-the-line suite of solutions, but the host of other technology offerings within the portfolio, to benefit the ophthalmic and optometric community.”

“We are proud to have iMedicWare join our family of solutions that are solely focused on eye care,” says Brent Michael, Chief Commercial Officer at Eye Care Leaders. “The team that Arun has built for iMedicWare is outstanding, and we look forward to his leadership in building the same level of excellence for all of our portfolio companies.”

We will prove that every day through innovation, customer service, and integrity.”
