Patient Placement Systems and Qtrac Software Announce Partnership and Healthcare Data Interface for Long-Term Patient Admissions and Clinical Systems

Leading Long-Term Care Software Companies Offer Seamless Data Transfer Between Admissions and Clinical Healthcare Systems for Nursing Homes and Other Skilled Continuing Care Facilities

ATLANTA, July 17, 2008 - Patient Placement Systems and Qtrac Software, top providers of admissions automation and clinical management software for long-term care, today announced a partnership to help long-term healthcare facilities accelerate patient admissions and seamlessly create electronic health records from patient referral data.

The Web-based PatientPlacement.com Referral Management System now lets users transfer patient information directly into a Qtrac data format, linking patient admissions databases with Qtrac's clinical care applications. This establishes the industry's first partner collaboration for fast, accurate, integrated patient admissions, document management and clinical care delivery.

"Patient Placement Systems is recognized as an industry leader for Web-based patient admissions and referral automation, and we are pleased to partner with them on a pioneering solution that connects long-term care admissions processes with care delivery management systems," said Daphne Clark, president of Qtrac Software. "We are especially excited to offer a solution that allows our facilities to reduce redundant administrative intake paperwork and enable superior quality long-term care for new residents as quickly as possible."

"Qtrac stands out as a true innovator in long-term care clinical management software," said Eric Christ, president of Patient Placement Systems. "Both companies are dedicated to improving long-term care business and clinical processes, and this partnership reflects our desire to merge leading solutions to make admissions and clinical management more effective and productive."

How the integrated solution works: A continuing care provider receives a patient referral by fax, phone or electronically in the PatientPlacement.com Referral Management System. The admissions team receives an alert and assigns and tracks review tasks for the referral. Once the patient is accepted, the admissions or clinical staff selects the Qtrac option from a drop-down box of data formats. The staff can import the data directly into the Qtrac system to use as the basis for an electronic medical record and patient clinical management.
