About Prelude

About Us

Our Story

Prelude Services was established in response to an industry need for IT services related specifically to the long term care and senior living markets. The sheer advancement of technologies, coupled with the ever increasing regulations of HIPAA has put tremendous stress on an already understaffed and often underfunded healthcare industry. Our owners, who are senior living providers, saw a tremendous market need for an industry resource that could assist other senior living providers in navigating the turbulent waters of Healthcare IT.

Created in partnership with Presbyterian Senior Living and Diakon Lutheran Social Ministries, Prelude Services’ mission is to provide innovative, secure IT solutions.

Prelude currently supports over 700 senior living, affordable housing and community service locations in over 40 states. Our clients depend on us as a trusted partner to manage all of their information technology needs. Our goal is to provide value-driven technology to enhance your organization’s delivery of services.
