Agility Health Enhances Patient Care Delivery With Launch of New Practice Management Software

Seizing on a $400 Million SaaS Market Opportunity

GRAND RAPIDS, MI--(Marketwired - October 09, 2014) - Agility Health, (TSX VENTURE: AHI) a leading provider of physical rehabilitation and software services to benefit patients, healthcare providers and employers, today announced the external launch of its practice management software, AgileRPM.

AgileRPM (Rehabilitation Practice Management) was built from the ground up to address the specific needs of clinicians and therapists. AgileRPM integrates scheduling, billing, reporting, accounts receivable management, and documentation into one system that improves overall clinic efficiency. The software has already been deployed in more than 45 office locations within the Agility Health network, and is now available to all hospital outpatient rehabilitation departments and physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech pathology clinics across North America.

"This software greatly reduces the probability of errors. Our therapists are now able to document everything while the patient is onsite, not later in the day," said Kourtney Cingano, Director of Rehabilitation Services at Mercy Hospital Grayling. "The software also automatically ensures that billing to the insurance company is done correctly, and tracks the number of authorized visits per patient. It takes a lot of the administrative headaches out of the patient care process."

In addition to streamlining patient intake and treatment, compliance monitoring and the billing process, the software's HIPAA-compliant levels of authentication, encryption and access control ensure that data stays secure.

"This software was built with compliance in mind," said Tiffany Warden-Lewis, Outpatient Compliance Officer with Agility Health. "The documentation module features several 'checklists' that alert the clinician to specific compliance requirements. AgileRPM combines the clinical and business sides of healthcare in a way that ensures compliance while allowing the clinicians to focus on their patients."

As the healthcare landscape changes, the software can be easily updated and quickly adaptable.

"The current healthcare model requires clinicians to balance efficiency and patient satisfaction," said Eric Boss, Clinic Director and Physical Therapist at Advent Physical Therapy. "This software is a valuable tool that increases both efficiency and compliance, creating more time to focus on our patients."

AgileRPM is available for purchase and implementation through Agility Health. To learn more, please contact Tim Hollstein at Agility Health at (616) 356-5008.
