SalePoint Marks 30th Anniversary on May 5th

Columbus, Ohio May 5, 2017 – SalePoint, Inc. marks its 30th anniversary as a leading supplier of technology solutions to the retail, healthcare, public sector, and higher education markets.

 
“Surprisingly it all started with an MBA program business plan competition at San Diego State University. Larry Imperiale, a graduate with a Computer Science degree, was working on his MBA at San Diego State University and entered an entrepreneurial business plan competition with a business plan that addressed a market gap in the retail systems market that was not being served by the large players such as IBM, NCR, and Fujitsu at the time. His business plan won the contest and Imperiale founded SalePoint Systems Corporation on May 5, 1987, to address this market gap. The name was later changed to SalePoint, Inc. During the early years, retail was a high growth market with specialty retailers expanding their chains nationwide. SalePoint grew quickly becoming #19 on the Inc. 500 List of Fastest Growing Companies in 1992. It later acquired additional businesses to expand its retail systems offerings. SalePoint diversified and expanded via acquisition into other markets that were showing strong growth. Today the healthcare information systems market has grown to be a strong segment of the company,” Larry Haworth, CEO of SalePoint stated. “Information technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace and SalePoint has had to adopt to ever changing technology. Luckily we have had a strong team that has enabled us to endure and grow in highly competitive and changing marketplaces. Our continued strong focus on customer satisfaction has enabled our success.”

 
More information about the founding of the company may be found in a Los Angeles Times article covering SalePoint in December 1990 – http://articles.latimes.com/1990-12-11/business/fi-6195_1_business-plan-competition. Imperiale, a 13-time Freestyle Frisbee World Champion is now Senior Vice President eCommerce Customer Experience Monitoring at Bank of America and continues to consider the founding of SalePoint as one of the “most significant professional accomplishments of his career so far.”

PatientWorks expands into the office-based physician market with iQ Kiosk and POWERstation Cloud software.

PatientWorks Corporation Showcases its Cloud Based Patient Check-in and Registration Solutions at the MGMA 2016 Annual Conference

 

CARY, NORTH CAROLINA – September 12, 2016— PatientWorks Corporation, a subsidiary of SalePoint, Inc. and a provider of healthcare self-service systems and patient flow management solutions, today announced that it has acquired the innovative iQ Kiosk and POWERstation Cloud software products from Unicomp Corporation of America (UCoA). The acquired software enables PatientWorks to expand its reach into the office-based physician practice marketplace.

 

Physician Practices may now use iPads as kiosk for fast patient electronic sign in.

Physician Practices may now use iPads as kiosk for fast patient electronic sign in.

“The new software adds to the current PatientWorks suite of patient self-service solutions,” said Larry Haworth, CEO of PatientWorks. “These unique cloud centric products provide productivity solutions to the office-based physician that reduces labor intensive processes. It delivers dramatic cost saving while enhancing accuracy and efficiency. These cloud empowered solutions are particularly effective for practices that don’t have, or don’t want to maintain, IT resources to support traditional on-premises implementations.”

iQ Kiosk is a web-based iPad check-in kiosk, where patients can simply sign in upon arrival at the physician’s office. It can service patients that have appointments or with walk-ins. Strong data analytics provide meaningful information to the practice regarding patient wait times and many other activities that impact the patient experience. The application of data analytics permits the practice to gain meaningful insights, and to better understand and improve practice performance. An iQ Kiosk deployment is easily justified by the significant return on a minimal investment.

As a complement to iQ Kiosk, the POWERstation Cloud solution automates front-desk patient registration with an efficient “hands-free” data input and verification process that improves staff productivity, reduces insurance claim denials, and establishes an effective patient payment and collection platform.

“We are pleased to provide PatientWorks with an impactful and cost-effective solution for the office based physician.” said Marty Kaplan, CEO of UCoA. “We believe that iQ Kiosk and POWERstation Cloud will provide PatientWorks with an opportunity for aggressive growth by expanding their market scope.”

PatientWorks Corporation Achieves Certification for Imprivata PatientSecure Integration

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                   

 PatientWorks Corporation Achieves Certification for Imprivata PatientSecure Integration

 Integrated solution allows for a single patient identifier across the healthcare

 enterprise for fast patient self-service check-in on PatientWorks kiosks and tablets

 CARY, NORTH CAROLINA – July 14, 2016— PatientWorks Corporation, a patient self-service check-in solutions company, today announced that it has successfully achieved Imprivata Ready! certification with the industry leading positive patient identification solution, Imprivata PatientSecure. The certification awarded by Imprivata® (NYSE: IMPR), the healthcare IT security company, covers the integration between PatientWorks’ self-service check-in solutions KioskWorks® and CheckinWorks® and Imprivata PatientSecure® to enable positive patient identification at self-service registration kiosks.

“Without the right tools in place to guarantee positive identification, healthcare will always be challenged to reap the full clinical and financial benefits of digital health technologies such as EHRs and self-service kiosks,” said Clay Ritchey, Chief Marketing Officer and GM of Imprivata PatientSecure Products Group. “By enabling deep integrations with these technologies, we’re ensuring that patients are accurately identified and experience the best possible patient registration workflows, ultimately improving patient adoption of self-service kiosks as well as patient safety and revenue cycle performance.”

Imprivata PatientSecure eliminates the need for providers and patients to input patient information manually by integrating with KioskWorks kiosks to make the single patient identifier available through kiosk registration. Kiosks identify patients through a palm vein scan, rather than requiring manual input of patient information, saving time and improving efficiency by eliminating the need for unnecessary paperwork.

“The use of biometric identification at registration kiosks is a great addition to our solutions and helps transform the entire registration and intake process,” said Larry Haworth, CEO of PatientWorks. “We have integrated the Imprivata PatientSecure palm-vein biometrics with our kiosks and tablet self-service check-in solutions, speeding the patient identification process and assuring positive patient identification. This improves patient safety, overall registration throughput, and ultimately, enhances the entire patient experience.”

Imprivata PatientSecure is the biometric patient identification platform that uses palm vein recognition biometrics to accurately identify patients. Through an easy enrollment process, Imprivata PatientSecure creates a 1:1 link between patients’ unique palm vein scans and their individual medical records. Once enrolled, a patient simply scans their palm and Imprivata PatientSecure quickly and accurately identifies the patient and automatically retrieves their unique medical record.
