Google: You Can Target & Rank For Two Keywords On A Single Page

Google Pair

The topic of optimizing for one keyword phrase over multiple is nothing new, we covered it in 2005 and probably more times since then. Can you optimize a single page for more than one keyword phrase?

Well, Google's Aaseesh Marina said in a Google Webmaster Help thread that it is technically possible.

Question asked: "I want to target 2 keywords on a single page. Is this a good idea or should I create two different pages to target both of the websites?"

Answer by Aaseesh: "If the content on the page is relevant for both the keywords, then I don't see an issue. Make sure the content is providing useful information to user queries around those keywords."

I guess if the keyword phrases are somewhat related it makes sense but to target [medical billing software] and then [flower delivery services] on the same page seems like a bad SEO strategy.
