TeamHealth Enters Into A Joint Marketing Agreement With InQuicker

KNOXVILLE, Tenn., May 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- TeamHealth, one of the largest providers of outsourced physician staffing solutions for hospitals, has entered into a joint marketing agreement with InQuicker, LLC, providers of the nation's first healthcare Online Waiting Room , which allows patients the ability to skip the waiting room at emergency departments and urgent care centers nationwide. Through this arrangement, TeamHealth and InQuicker will jointly market a uniquely positioned service to provide TeamHealth's current and prospective hospital clients access to as a means of improving patient satisfaction, optimizing staff efficiency and retaining patients in-network.

As value-based purchasing standards tighten the connection between hospital reimbursement and patient satisfaction, hospitals are looking for solutions to reduce wait times in the emergency department (ED).

InQuicker users are sent real-time notifications via phone or email with updated projected treatment times. Studies by InQuicker have demonstrated that their product reduces a patient's wait time by an average of 45 minutes.

"Our relationship with InQuicker allows us to provide additional value to our ED clients and the patients that they serve," said David Grinbergs, DO, FACEP, President, TeamHealth Emergency Medicine. "Their innovative product is consistent with our goal to be a comprehensive hospital solutions company, supporting the entire continuum of hospital-based patient care."
