Sage Healthcare Division Announces Customer Appreciation Program (CAP) to Support Customers Concerned About Adopting Health IT

CAP Designed to Remove Barriers for Loyal Customers

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - September 16, 2010) -  Sage North America today announced that the Sage Healthcare Division, a provider of electronic health records (EHR) and practice management software, has launched its Customer Appreciation Program (CAP) that's designed to say thank you to its existing customers and provide them with assistance toward adopting EHRs and achieving meaningful use requirements. Under this loyalty program, qualifying Sage customers can receive additional software to help them achieve federal stimulus incentives, manage care quality and evolve with the changes in healthcare today.

"For customers who have been part of the Sage Healthcare family, the Sage Customer Appreciation Program shows that not only do we appreciate their loyalty and commitment, but that we are invested in their success and want them to achieve their goals," said Tony Ryzinski, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Sage Healthcare. "Many of our customers are asking how to achieve meaningful use compliance and benefit from stimulus funding. The Sage Customer Appreciation Program will help by reducing barriers practices face as they continue making investments in their business."

Sage created the CAP to honor the commitment their customers have demonstrated by supporting Sage and its solutions over the years. More than a resource to help eligible Sage clients reach EHR and meaningful use, Sage considers CAP a rewards-style program.

Sage customers have the benefit of choice. Based on customer feedback, many practices would prefer to stay on the practice management system, such as Sage Medical Manager, they've used and trusted for years while they focus on implementing an EHR. Others are ready to make a bigger change and take advantage of the full Sage Intergy product family. Sage Intergy EHR and the Sage Intergy Meaningful Use Edition allow customers to select the best path for their practices.

"Navigating the complexities of the ever changing healthcare economy has been a major source of anxiety for many customers," said Ryzinski. "Sage is committed to helping our customers evolve with these changes, meet upcoming regulatory requirements such as 5010 and ICD-10 as well as achieve meaningful use -- all of which equate to better patient health care outcomes, which is always our ultimate goal."
