ATLANTA, July 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Ingenious Med, the leader in inpatient practice management information systems, announces its rapid growth as the company approaches exciting new milestones. Record sales and product deployments in the first half of 2008 bring Ingenious Med even closer to the 4,000 user mark, which the company anticipates reaching by the end of 2008. In addition, the company expects to reach 500 million dollars worth of charges processed for their client base sometime in the 3rd quarter. Ingenious Med attributes its expansion to substantial customer deployments, customer satisfaction at existing sites, and ability to measure practice performance.
Some of the new clients that Ingenious Med added in the first part of the year include: Emerson Hospital, Sumter Regional Hospital, Yakima Regional Medical Center, and Hawaii Pacific Health. These new groups are in addition to the deployment of IM Practice Manager(TM) at 25 additional sites within the current client base. These new facilities range from local hospitalist services groups to large, national health systems. Twenty-nine existing customers chose to expand with additional IM Practice Manager(TM) products or users. Gates Hospitalist Group and St. Lukes Kansas City extended existing IM service with the addition of time-saving integration.
Group expansions with Ingenious Med continue as a result of overwhelming client satisfaction. California-based Millennium Medical Practice Management, LCC recently added Redding Critical Care to their initial corporation, Hospitalists of Northern California. According to Debbie Kaut, Business Manager at Millennium, Redding Critical Care was impressed with Ingenious Med. "The physicians had been using the phone for patient handoff," states Kaut. "IM Practice Manager(TM) has the capabilities and tools for organized use of the census and required proof of patient handoff." In addition, Kaut states that, "IM Practice Manager(TM) provides tools for better communication in patient care. Something missed in critical care could be very lethal -- it's good to have a backup." Millennium hopes to eventually expand to its third corporation.
As a leader in the inpatient movement, Ingenious Med continues to make developments relevant to improving care in various inpatient specialties. With innovative tools such as IM Quality Measures(TM) (for PQRI), this software package enables physicians and practice administrators to document, capture, report, and submit quality performance metrics. Other IM Practice Manager(TM) features allow physicians and practices to capture charges electronically, track quality performance, enhance revenues, improve clinical care, and prove practice value to employing hospitals, payers and patients.
Ingenious Med continues to expand its reach into the hospitalist and inpatient market, and grow its relationship with the nation's leading health systems and hospitalist management companies. IM Practice Manager's ability to deliver a return on investment within three to six months has allowed IM to maintain a loyal customer base, and earned IM a reputation for excellence in the medical community.
