Care Logistics Signs Key Marketing Agreement with Phoenix Health Care Management Services

Collaborating to reduce length of stay, readmission rates and the cost of care for Georgia VHA Member and Nonmember hospitals

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Care LogisticsTM, the creator of the Hospital Operating SystemTM Solution, announces a marketing collaboration with Phoenix Health Care Management Services, Inc., to offer its innovative and market leading solution to increase dramatically the operating efficiency of Georgia hospitals. This comprehensive approach combines a leadership mindset curriculum and system wide process reengineering, empowered by enterprise logistics software, to help hospitals achieve reliable and predictive operational performance in the areas of throughput, quality and experience.

“The Hospital Operating System Solution was brought to my attention by one of our member hospitals, the Medical Center of Central Georgia (MCCG), in a presentation it gave on the goals of its partnership with Care Logistics,” said Richard Howerton, President and Chief Executive Officer, Phoenix Health Care Management Services, Inc., and VHA Georgia, Inc. “Care Logistics has a very innovative solution that is already significantly affecting MCCG’s approach to managing its operational effort to deliver care. Based on what Care Logistics has done for its customers so far, I am certain a number of our state’s hospitals can transform their operations and enjoy remarkable results.”

Although the Hospital Operating System has only been available for a short while, Care Logistics already has saved its partners more than $100 million. Hospitals that already utilize the Care Logistics Hospital Operating System are better able to integrate all the clinical and non-clinical patient movements and order executions occurring in their operations to achieve optimal patient throughput and length of stay, while enhancing overall patient satisfaction and care delivery quality.

“As an Atlanta-based company, we are very proud to be working with Phoenix Health Care to establish more partnerships in our home state,” noted Karl Straub, President of Care Logistics. “Supported by our Hospital Operating System and focusing on the logistics of patient care, it will be our goal to help VHA Georgia member hospitals achieve dramatic results in managing the costs to deliver care in the communities they serve.”
