SHP Celebrates 5,000th Customer

Pioneering real-time data intelligence products have transformed the healthcare industry

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Strategic Healthcare Programs (SHP) announces a milestone achievement – the 5,000th customer of its innovative suite of healthcare industry software programs, SHPSolutions™.  Strong, accelerating acceptance of its award-winning real-time benchmarking and data intelligence tools by healthcare provider organizations in every state is fueling rapid growth for the company, which recently moved to new corporate offices in Santa Barbara that are twice as large as its previous location.

"SHP was our choice because of access to real-time data, tools available related to outcomes, patient satisfaction, general analysis of data, patient satisfaction measurement and valuable reports," says Wanda Bankhead, Clinical Director of Sta-home Health & Hospice, the 5,000th customer.  "We will also utilize SHP in the oversight of our Chronic Disease Management program and Telemonitoring.  SHP is a catalyst for performance improvement in many areas including general outcomes, especially reduction in avoidable hospitalizations and emergent care, process-measures, avoidable events, patient satisfaction, OASIS accuracy and overall Case Manager performance."

SHP's programs give providers the tools for real-time monitoring of operational and financial performance to improve their patient outcomes and financial performance.  They gain maximum compliance with regulatory requirements like HHCAHPS, which tracks patient satisfaction, publicly posts it on the Web and uses that information for Medicaid reimbursement calculations. SHPSolutions™ gathers and translates all of a healthcare provider's data and streams it into a single dashboard of immediately usable information that can be used for long-term strategic planning as well as immediate tactical improvement, drilling down to individual clinician performance.  

"I started SHP in 1996 after working as a healthcare professional myself and seeing how important it was to find a way to turn the huge amount of data that agencies generate into immediately usable information that could improve their ability to serve patients," says SHP Founder and CEO, Barbara Rosenblum.  "That unwavering commitment has been fueled by a real passion to help this industry grow and succeed."

Individual enterprises and industry advocates alike depend on SHP's industry, regional and national benchmarks.  Data interfaces custom built with the major healthcare software vendors, allow dynamic, instant updates and analysis unobtainable anywhere else.
