Clinicient to Acquire Intermountain Healthcare ROMS
Combination of outcomes reporting, patient engagement and therapy-specific EMR enables therapists to unlock the full revenue potential of value-based care
PORTLAND, OREGON, JUNE 26, 2019 — Clinicient, Inc., a leading provider of business solutions for outpatient rehabilitation, backed by growth equity firm Catalyst Investors, today announced a definitive agreement to acquire from Intermountain Healthcare the Intermountain Rehab Outcomes Management System (ROMS). Intermountain ROMS is a best-in-class physical therapy outcomes registry and leader in rehabilitation-focused quality improvement. Adding Intermountain ROMS enables Clinicient to offer an unrivaled set of solutions in value-based care deliverables, such as the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), and help providers deliver improved patient outcomes. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
With a strong backbone in healthcare innovation, Intermountain ROMS delivers patient reported outcomes surveys and analytic tools that help physical and occupational therapy providers make better care decisions and demonstrate high value care. Integrating the Intermountain ROMS platform with ‘Keet Health,’ Clinicient’s mobile patient engagement solution, streamlines the process of data collection and submission requirements for therapists. This unique combination enables therapy providers to automatically provision, score and report patient-reported outcomes through a patient’s mobile device, ensuring therapists are rewarded for the high-value care they provide.
“Our team is committed to moving physical therapy up the healthcare value chain. We’ve developed a strategy, made investments and partnered with the best in the industry to help clinics remain competitive in the changing landscape. We believe demonstrating quality outcomes is a crucial, foundational step in the transition to value-based care,” said T. Kent Rowe, Chief Executive Officer, Clinicient, Inc.
“Rehabilitation therapists embody the goals of the triple aim approach of improving healthcare by delivering high quality, low cost, patient-centered care. We strive to provide solutions that allow our therapists to continue improving lives,” said Holly Taylor, VP & General Manager, Keet, Inc.
