ATLANTA, GA. - Patient Placement Systems announced today that healthcare provider A.G. Rhodes Homes has signed a contract to manage patient referrals across two of its sub-acute care locations using the online Referral Management System Enterprise Edition™ software.

The Referral Management System Enterprise Edition automates and accelerates patient referral intake for sub-acute nursing homes and other multi-location long-term care providers, replacing slow fax-and-paper processes with a fast, efficient, secure online software service. All locations can review, track, approve and archive referral documents and electronic medical records online, applying true enterprise operational efficiency to referral processes.

"The Referral Management System online software meets our special requirements for efficiently managing patient referrals and admissions across multiple locations," said A.G. Rhodes Homes' director of operations, Russell Williams. "We're extremely impressed with how the online software makes it easy to receive and track referrals, alert admissions staff to new referral requests, and share potential referrals and patient medical records electronically across our community."

The announcement follows a successful software pilot project managing hundreds of inbound referrals. Williams also cited the value and convenience of receiving and tracking referrals from all sources and methods-whether initiated from a fax machine or existing online referral systems.

"We're pleased to announce this partnership with an outstanding nursing home provider such as A.G. Rhodes," said Eric Christ, president of Patient Placement Systems. "It further validates how our secure online Referral Management System software is improving operations, efficiency, patient placement and care for multi-location nursing homes and other long-term care facilities."
