About Us

Prelude Services is an IT service provider, offering innovative and secure information technologies.   With a strong foundation in supporting healthcare and senior care, we have grown our competencies over the years to be able to support many industries including education and transportation.  


Our Story

Prelude Services was founded on the idea that IT software for healthcare organizations should be accessible and secure to protect the most vulnerable patients. Our owners, who themselves are senior living providers, recognized the need in the market for an industry resource that could assist them and other senior living providers in navigating healthcare IT solutions and protecting their information in the age of HIPAA.

We have worked in partnership with Presbyterian Senior Living and Diakon Lutheran Social Ministries to create a company whose mission would be to provide innovative, secure information technologies to senior living and care organizations. With that, Prelude Services came to be.

Today, Prelude Services supports over 700 senior living, long-term care, affordable housing and community service locations in over 40 states by providing secure IT software for senior living. We continue to work toward our goal of providing valuable technology to our clients, helping them enhance their data security and quality of service. Our clients depend on us as a trusted and proven partner to manage all of their information technology needs, and we can do the same for your organization.
