Cedar Rapids, IA — September 10, 2013 — Geonetric,an online solutions provider for the healthcare industry, has partnered with Dekalb, IL–based KishHealth System. The organization moved from thirteen websites to one responsive website as part of a rebranding effort focused on providing the community with information about the organization from a system–wide level.
