and the Greenway Foundation
At Greenway, corporate social responsibility is integrated into our business model. As a company dedicated to the advancement of healthcare, Greenway is keenly aware of not only the challenges of the sustainability of healthcare and how it impacts communities, but how our solutions can and should provide philanthropic benefits on many levels.
Software as a service. Literally.
To meet that goal, in February 2010, Greenway® donated our integrated EHR, practice management and interoperability software PrimeSUITE® to Northern Kentucky University’s College of Informatics and College of Health Professions. There, it is being used to create merged curriculums to aid in the training, development and research tools of the next generation of health information technology professionals.
We followed the donation of PrimeSUITE with one to the University of West Georgia in our hometown of Carrollton, GA, and provided the technical support and training for the university’s Health Services Center to convert health records for its entire student population from paper to digital charts to improve healthcare coordination.
The Greenway Community Foundation
Taking our efforts a step further, Spring 2010 marked the creation of The Greenway Community Foundation, which embraced the Carroll County chapter of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta as its initial beneficiary. The Greenway family is proud to assist the Boys & Girls Clubs teach life-applicable skills while having fun and preparing kids for their future.
The Greenway Community Foundation has provided ongoing programmatic funds, on-site mentoring and company-sponsored internships toward employment to the nearly 200 Carroll County youth ages six to 18 the Club supports through its own comprehensive outreach to area youth.
As well as the support we provide, in 2011 we held the first Greenway Market Day, which was held on our corporate campus and raised an additional $3,000 for the Carroll County chapter.
West Fest is an annual music festival successfully launched in 2012 by Greenway and other corporate leaders in the community to raise funds to support the Carroll County Chapter of the Boys & Girls Clubs.
An exciting and successful event was held on April 20. West Fest ’13 was a huge hit, and its record proceeds of approximately $98,000 will greatly support the local chapter of the Boys & Girls Clubs. Check out the West Fest website for photos and other follow-up details as available.
To symbolize our support for the Boys & Girls Club local chapter, we were pleased to donate the first 100 publicly traded shares of Greenway stock (NYSE: GWAY) to the chapter.

The ‘Do Right’ Scholarship
Alyssa Daniel of Carrollton High School received the Greenway Foundation’s “Do Right Scholarship” for 2012. Greenway developed the annual $3,500 award in 2011 to provide college education assistance to a high-school senior and member of the Carroll County Boys & Girls Club.
Students are selected based on demonstrated financial need, academic merit, leadership in the community, extracurricular activities and community service. The award is also a recognition of the invaluable community service the club provides.
