The New Force in Accountable Care Software Set for Unprecedented Growth in 2012
Revolutionary Patient Centered Platform Guiding Light to Accountable Care Organizations
OMAHA, Nebraska (March 1, 2012) – Building on the heritage of the powerful OTTR™ brand, HKS Medical Information Systems announced this week it would officially change the Company’s name to OTTR, Inc. doing business as OTTR™ Chronic Care Solutions. “Brand recognition is critical in a competitive market. Since the acquisition and recapitalization of HKS, we’ve been visiting customers and they always refer to us as the ‘OTTR guys,’” said OTTR™ Chronic Care Solutions’ CEO, Lou Halperin. “This happens with our core customers in Solid Organ Transplant as well as with our customers using OTTR as a chronic care solution for tracking long term care of patients in heart failure, nephrology, hepatology, BMT, or VAD. It’s a natural fit for us to become OTTR.”
Over the next few months, OTTR™ Chronic Care Solutions will be releasing a number of solutions that will revolutionize the healthcare industry. OTTR™ software extends the pioneering Accountable Care Organization (ACO) approach of Solid Organ Transplant beyond the transplant center. Unique chronic care solutions, similar to those already in use, will be released to various markets such as the Advanced Heart Failure segment. The new company name reflects the new product releases targeted at the needs of ACOs and requirements for compliance with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
OTTR™ Chronic Care Solutions will optimize in-hospital and ambulatory Electronic Medical Records(EMR) and Health Information Systems (HIS) by delivering external lab interoperability and long-term continuum of care across a provider’s region or nation. Simultaneously, the solutions will provide customers a proven long-term national care tracking record in answer to CMS, UNOS, AGNIS, INTERMACS, and other regulatory bodies. These activities will extend the impact of OTTR™ Chronic Care Solutions beyond the transplant enterprise specifically targeting the need to manage the care of patients with chronic conditions across their many providers and to provide appropriate reporting to regulatory bodies for this complex patient population nationwide.
