HAMILTON, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 4, 2016) - Watchstone Group plc ("Watchstone") is pleased to announce the launch of InnoCare Ltd. (www.innocare.ca) ("InnoCare") which is being spun out of Watchstone's leading Canadian physiotherapy business, pt Healthcare Solutions Corp ("pt Health").

InnoCare's proprietory clinic management software platform and call centre customer service operations combined with its established industry expertise will enable clinic owners to transform patient experience and operate more efficient and productive practices in the growing North American healthcare market.

  • Advanced online booking and client self-booking options that are proven to drive lead generation and increase client satisfaction;
  • Data analytics and intelligent reporting capability to support patient treatment, enhance practice management, and provide objective visibility into business operation;
  • Optimized schedule management tools, allowing clinics to more effectively fill excess capacity;
  • Call centre operations that increase communication with clients and clinicians by extending personalized customer service hours to 90 hours per week; and
  • Billing and payroll services that reduce administrative requirements significantly, creating operational efficiencies and better financial control.

A tailored package of services is available to suit individual clinicians as well as larger practices. These modular products are mobile enabled, fully configurable, and this will enable them to rapidly enhance their clinic operations and scale their practices.

Cloud based platforms allow clinics of all types to deliver a more connected, personalized and improved customer experience. Such optimization tools will give partner clinics significant competitive advantage in this evolving marketplace". says Wayne Ingram, Managing Director, Slalom Consulting Canada, a leading Customer Experience and Technology Consultancy.

Depending on location, pt Health clinics offer physiotherapy, massage therapy, occupational therapy, acupuncture, psychology, hand therapy, and chiropractic among other services. pt Health also provide patients with custom bracing, orthotics, compression stockings, and home rehabilitation products.

As a company, pt Health has remained true to their clinical roots with the focus always on delivering the highest quality of care to their patients.

Leveraging research, resources, and 20 years of experience in clinic and practice management, pt Health recognized the need for software as a service and business process outsourcing in their own clinics.

This led to the creation of a spin out company from pt Health focused on healthcare, technology, and centralized services.
