Dallas – April 10, 2012 – Corepoint Health announced today that Innovative Dialysis Systems and its parent company Ambulatory Services of America, Inc., used Corepoint Integration Engine to implement 11 complex healthcare IT interfaces during the first quarter of 2012. Using Corepoint Integration Engine, Innovative Dialysis was able to integrate 17 newly acquired dialysis centers seamlessly. Innovative Dialysis is headquartered in Long Beach, Calif., and Ambulatory Services of America is headquartered in Brentwood, Tenn.

Hal Porter, Vice President of Information Technology at ASA, said “a key reason we chose to partner with Corepoint Health was due to Corepoint’s reputation for solid customer service and their ability to help us build healthcare interfaces quickly and productively.”

Porter highlighted the advantages of Corepoint’s Integration Engine in assisting Innovative Dialysis and ASA in integrating the recent acquisition of Renal CarePartners, Inc. Porter said, “Because Corepoint Integration Engine makes it easy to connect disparate systems and databases, we were able to seamlessly integrate the data from the 17 acquired facilities, each with a unique information system. It would have been much more difficult and taken much longer without Corepoint Health.”

“Since installing Corepoint Integration Engine, Innovative Dialysis’ clinical staff works more efficiently, so that staff members can spend more quality time with patients,” Porter said. Prior to partnering with Corepoint Health, the same patient data had to be entered into three to four different databases. Now, Innovative has one central point of patient registration, and that information is distributed to all associated databases through interfaces built and maintained using Corepoint Integration Engine.

“Our plan is that Corepoint Integration Engine will become the central nervous system for everything we do, so we will have more control over the data. Now we can translate the data and make different systems work better together,” Porter said.

Because every healthcare provider is unique, Corepoint Health CEO Phil Guy said it is important to truly understand each provider’s integration challenges, something that is only possible through open communication and a team approach.

“We are proud of the relationships we have built with our customers, which truly is a collaborative partnership created from frequent, candid conversations that allow us to understand each client’s unique needs. This team philosophy helps Corepoint Health thoroughly understand and address each customer question, suggestion, or initiative,” Guy said. “Knowing our customers, combined with our flexibility to consistently add new product features, are key factors that Corepoint Integration Engine has been named the number one interface engine in the Top 20 Best in KLAS Awards: Software & Professional Services for the past three years.”
