Mediware Extends PhysioTools Agreement to Offer Streamlined Workflow

Partnership gives clinicians access to rehabilitation exercise software utilizing MediLinks

Lenexa, KS – November 20, 2015 – Mediware Information Systems, Inc., a provider of comprehensive post-acute care healthcare software, announces a major extension of its agreement with PhysioTools, the world’s leading exercise provider, to help streamline workflow within MediLinks for Rehabilitation.

With the partnership, clinicians can open PhysioTools from MediLinks and easily create, manage and provide specific exercise programs for the patient in real-time. PhysioTool’s Web-based software is designed for rehabilitation and training professionals, and helps create personal exercise and information handouts. The information can be output in the form of print, email and/or high quality videos.

“We’ve been working with PhysioTools for several years and the ease of use and time savings for our clients, along with a very comprehensive library of professional exercises used by leading specialists, is a huge draw for our clients. We’re thrilled to offer this add-on feature, and the best part – our clinicians won’t have to leave MediLinks,” said Stuart Foster, Mediware General Manager for Rehabilitation and Respiratory.  “We’re committed to providing tools and solutions that help clinicians provide the best patient care, this partnership is another example of our dedication to doing that.”

PhysioTools Sales and Marketing Director, Gail Milne, says the deepened relationship is a big win for healthcare providers as more facilities are forced to go with EMR systems “We’re thrilled to be working with Mediware, not only because they offer therapy solutions across the entire post-acute care continuum, but also because of their professional and personal way of partnering with us,” added Milne. Mediware offers an inpatient, acute, outpatient and even private practice solution for the rehabilitation solution, and have been in rehabilitation settings for nearly 30 years.

MediLinks for OP and PhysioTools offers workflow and proactive tools that supports the clinician in capture and tracking of required patient management, as well as patient engagement. These workflows and tools allow the organization to promote a quality patient experience from the initial visit to discharge.
