Acquisition Will Strengthen Both Firms’ Service to Clients; PPS Plus to Retain Existing Alliances, Integrations and Headquarters
AUSTIN, TEXAS – October 29, 2015 – Kinnser® Software, the Austin-based national software leader in clinical and business solutions for post-acute care businesses, has announced that it has acquired Biloxi, Mississippi-based PPS Plus™, a national leader in clinical analysis and benchmarking solutions for home health agencies. The announcement was made last night at the 2015 National Association of Home Care and Hospice Annual Meeting in Nashville.
PPS Plus solutions integrate with a number of home health software solutions, including Kinnser. PPS Plus’s strategic alliances, software integrations and energetic team are not changing. PPS Plus will continue to work with all agencies and software vendors without disruption or limitations, while being wholly owned by Kinnser. The acquisition will allow both companies to accelerate innovation for the rapidly growing post-acute care sector. Post-acute care is a highly regulated industry, and providers are seeking more advanced software solutions to stay compliant and take better care of more patients.
Kinnser president and founder Chris Hester said, “Kinnser and PPS Plus share the same vision––that technology can transform the delivery of healthcare. Together, we look forward to future innovation as we enhance the world’s best solutions for post-acute care, delivering the right insights, at the right time, to the right team members.”
John Shinn, president and founder of PPS Plus, said, “There has been a natural synergy between our companies for years. We are excited that PPS Plus is now part of the Kinnser family. We’re looking forward to making our customers more successful and improving outcomes every step of the way.”
Intrepid USA, one of the nation’s largest home health providers, is a customer of both Kinnser and PPS Plus. “Kinnser and PPS Plus are important tools for Intrepid USA,” says Susan Goff, vice president of sales and operations for Intrepid USA Healthcare. “The addition of PPS Plus to the Kinnser family is great news for the home health industry. We’re excited about future innovations that will certainly grow from the synergy between these two companies!”
PPS Plus’s OASIS Analysis Plus™ solution helps agencies increase the accuracy of their clinical documents, while Benchmarks Plus™ gives agencies clinically rich performance reports that help agencies improve care and efficiency. Both solutions are highly aligned with Kinnser’s web-based electronic health record software and the company’s overall mission: to deliver innovative solutions that enable post-acute care providers to grow and thrive.
