HHII Builds Relationship With Physician Group for Home Health Referrals

VERO BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - Aug 16, 2012) - Home Health International Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HHII), a Medicare-certified home health agency and durable medical equipment (DME) supplier, announced today that the Company is in talks with a physician group for exclusive referrals for home health services.

Home Health International is close to finalizing an agreement with a regional physician group to be the group's home health agency of choice for patients in need of home health services. The physician group is seeking a relationship with a home health services provider in order to streamline operations and provide a consistent experience across all patients and physicians. Home Health International would serve as the physician group's preferred home health agency for patient referrals.

While specific terms of the arrangement are not yet finalized, Home Health International shared the following key provisions:

  • Exclusivity -- The physician group will refer patients in need of home health services to Home Health International first; however, in the event Home Health International rejects a patient for any reason, the physician group can refer the patient to another home health agency of its choosing.
  • Risk Assessment -- Home Health International will perform an initial risk assessment for each referred patient to include health history, current health care needs, and appropriate time/equipment/staff investments.
  • Right of First Refusal -- Home Health International is granted right of first refusal for home health care patients.
  • Nature of Relationship -- In accordance with federal laws and regulations, Home Health International and the physician group enter into this contract void of any financial relationship, compensation arrangement, or remuneration. This contract merely outlines expectations of a relationship of trust, convenience, and ease of care.

Based on market data, Home Health International anticipates this arrangement could increase monthly revenues by an estimated 20 percent.
