Austin-based leader in enterprise software for post-acute healthcare continues fast-track growth, signing large customers and acquiring companies to serve the $82-billion and growing home health space

AUSTIN, TEXAS — November 13, 2015 — Kinnser Software, Inc., the national leader in clinical and business solutions for post-acute healthcare companies, today announced it has been recognized for the third consecutive year on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America. Kinnser’s rank on the 2015 list is 381. Kinnser Software grew 170.6 percent from 2011 through 2014, with a focus on product development and strategic acquisitions.

Kinnser Software’s founder and president Chris Hester attributes Kinnser’s accelerated growth to its employees, who remain true to the company’s mission of developing technology to improve the delivery of healthcare. “Kinnser is powering the fastest growing industry in the US––post-acute care. We’ve increased our investment in research and aligned with the most effective partners to meet the needs of our customers,” says Hester.

Continuing to expand its market share, Kinnser recently signed Senior Helpers, one of the largest in-home senior care companies, as a customer.  In October, Kinnser acquired PPS Plus™, a national leader in clinical and benchmarking solutions for home health agencies.

“Amid a fierce business climate, there seems to be no shortage of new and established companies that are unlocking a seemingly unlimited potential for growth and advancement through technology’s continued disruption and proliferation across industries,” said Sandra Shirai, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and U.S. technology, media and telecommunications leader. “It is inspiring to witness the innovative ways that companies are incorporating emerging technologies for business gains, be it cognitive computing, or the Internet of Things. We congratulate all those ranked on this year’s Fast 500 and look forward to seeing their continued growth into 2016.”

Launched in 2003, Kinnser Software is the national leader in software for home care. Its solutions are used by more than 4,000 home health, hospice, and private duty agencies of all sizes nationwide. Tens of thousands of caregivers and clinicians use Kinnser daily to coordinate care for hundreds of thousands of clients and patients.  In the last 12 months alone, more than 23 million home care and hospice visits were scheduled with Kinnser solutions.

The third year Deloitte award is one of many honors recognizing Hester’s leadership and the Kinnser Software team, including four appearances on Inc. Magazine’s list of the fastest-growing companies in the US, the Austin Business Journal’s ranking as one of the fastest growing companies in Central Texas and repeat recognition from the Austin American-Statesman as a Top Workplace of Greater Austin.

“Through the efforts and utilization of new and emerging technologies from these companies, we are witnessing greater business demands from across almost all industries,” added Jim Atwell, national managing partner of the emerging company practice, Deloitte & Touche LLP. “We look forward to the opportunity to serve these companies as they strive to grow to the next level – be it towards introducing new solutions or entering new markets – and with it make important and long lasting impressions on the technology market as a whole.”

Kinnser joins other Austin-based companies on this year’s list including: Phunware, Q1Media, Kimbia, One Source Networks, Q2 Software, Sailpoint, Itransition, Digital Turbine, Bazaarvoice, Asure Software, Sizmek, and Solarwinds.
