AGOURA HILLS, Calif. (May 6, 2019)—Casamba, a provider of electronic medical record (EMR) solutions for home health agencies, outpatient therapy, skilled nursing facilities and contract therapy providers, announced Alinea Engage is now a part of the company’s partner network. The integration is available immediately for Casamba Clinic customers and will roll out to Casamba Skilled users later in Q2 2019.
Alinea’s platform enables outpatient physical therapy and rehabilitation providers to digitize intake forms and assessments, allowing patients to complete paperwork before their appointment—resulting in greater efficiency, reduced costs and improved outcomes. It also offers the ability to engage clients between visits and extend marketing outreach services upon graduation from care, helping maximize ongoing patient relations.
“We’re excited to add Alinea to our partner network and we’re certain that our customers will recognize the value they can deliver to their operations,” said Luis Montes, Casamba’s SVP of Strategic Partnerships. “We are strong believers in companies like Alinea—those that use technology to add value, streamline delivery of care and improve patient relations.”
“Alinea has been working closely with a wide range of therapists and staff to digitize intake and engage patients in a way that truly optimizes efficiencies and boosts revenue,” said Carol Vance, Alinea’s founder and CEO. “As patients love Alinea too, we really help our clients stand out and gain loyalty. Casamba has been an extraordinary partner in this process, and we’re especially excited at the power of this integration to further streamline workflow on a whole new level.”
Digitization of the intake process, like that offered by Alinea, can be a key factor in minimizing patient “no shows” and maximizing revenue. In fact, according to the Milwaukee-based physical therapy software firm, Alinea decreased skipped or missed appointment by over 50% in a case study with a large urban practice. It also reports that over 80% of patients using the platform complete their paperwork before their first visit, saving practitioners and staff countless hours.
