Mountain View Healthcare Center Joins the Health Gorilla™, Inc. Online Marketplace

Mountain View Healthcare Is the First Skilled Nursing Facility to Join Marketplace

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 17, 2014) - Health Gorilla, Inc., the first online healthcare marketplace to connect doctors and clinicians with over 9,000+ diagnostic labs and 35,000+ radiology centers, and Mountain View Healthcare Center have announced a new multi-year agreement which extends Mountain View Healthcare Center's services through the Health Gorilla Marketplace. As a premier skilled nursing facility in the Bay Area, Mountain View Healthcare Center serves Northern California with 122 Medicare and Medicaid certified beds.

"Mountain View Healthcare Center is the first skilled nursing facility (SNF) to formally join the Health Gorilla marketplace," said Steven Yaskin, Chief Executive Officer. "Our marketplace now enables partners such as Mountain View Healthcare Center to place orders for diagnostic lab and radiology center services electronically. Test results can be shared immediately with both Mountain View Healthcare Center and their ambulatory physicians. Results and related communications are delivered directly to physician's desktop computer, iPhone®, or iPad mini™ instead of paper and fax transmission. The physician can also respond with instructions directly to the SNF staff. This eliminates a significant portion of the faxing, phone calls, and delay. Communications are improved substantially. "

Mountain View Healthcare Center primarily focuses on short-term rehabilitation providing 24-Hour skilled nursing care and daily intensive rehabilitative services -- Physical Therapy (PT), Occupational Therapy (OT) and Speech Therapy (ST). Their facilities include two designated short-term rehabilitation wings consisting of 44 semi-private beds. Mountain View Healthcare Center is also one of the only Skilled Nursing Facilities in the Bay Area with a designated 32-bed Alzheimer's Dementia Unit. Further, Mountain View Healthcare Center has a licensed geriatric nurse practitioner on staff.

"Mountain View Healthcare Center is proud to have been serving the citizens of this area for decades. We specialize in providing a variety of rehabilitation and skilled nursing services onsite to help individuals recover from surgery, injury or serious illness," said Shakira Dalal, Administrator, Mountain View Healthcare Center. "Digital health services such as the Health Gorilla marketplace enable us to improve the communications between our ambulatory physicians, our administrative staff and the diagnostic vendors that support us. We believe that this has the potential over time to provide benefits in patient care, improve outcomes and reduce readmissions. We're very pleased to be the first skilled nursing facility in California to announce our partnership with Health Gorilla and bring the marketplace to our community."
