This partnership will enable TeamHealth's management and individual practices to have secure, real-time access to key business intelligence as well as physician and practice performance data. The software also will provide TeamHealth hospitalists with additional rounding, charge capture, communication and cross-cover applications to further enhance patient care and safety.

"TeamHealth chose to partner with Ingenious Med because the company was founded by hospitalists, and they understand the hospital medicine industry and the inpatient practice setting," says Stacy Goldsholl, M.D., president, TeamHealth Hospital Medicine. "We have sites that have been using IM Practice Manager for almost a year, and the positive results have convinced us that Ingenious Med will make a significant contribution to our existing pool of resources that contribute to the continuing growth and success of our hospitalists and partner hospitals."

Ingenious Med's flagship software program, IM Practice Manager (TM), is an ASP application. It uses the internet to enable physicians and administrators to enter and access patient, rounding and practice information using a variety of platforms including desktop, tablet PC, and handheld PDA technology. With the largest aggregation of hospitalist performance data in the industry, IM continuously evaluates best practice metrics as benchmarks for client practice performance. With customizable business intelligence reporting capabilities, Ingenious Med provides real-time, actionable data, critical to managing multi- site enterprises.

"TeamHealth is one of the largest hospitalist and inpatient management organizations in the country, and our exclusive focus on the needs of inpatient practitioners makes this partnership an ideal fit," says Dr. Steven Liu, founder and CEO of Ingenious Med. "Through this partnership, we can provide TeamHealth hospitalists and client hospitals with the tools to continue to optimize revenue while further enhancing their already excellent clinical quality and hospitalist performance."
