Amerinet Partners with BlueStep/BridgeGate Health to Provide EHR,

Integration Services to Members

SALT LAKE CITY, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- BlueStep/BridgeGate

Health, provider of the LTPAC industry's only client-configurable care

and clinical platform powered by high-performance data integration,

today announced an agreement to deliver products and services to

Amerinet, Inc., a leading national healthcare solutions organization

that collaborates with acute and non-acute care providers to solve

their most pressing issues.

Under the terms of the agreement, Amerinet will offer

BlueStep/BridgeGate Health's Clinical Care ExchangeT platform to its

members. Clinical Care Exchange combines a native electronic health

record (EHR) with a powerful integration platform for connectivity

across the healthcare continuum. The fully automated, customizable and

web-based platform will make it easier for Amerinet members to

integrate data from all their provider sites, including acute care,

physicians' offices, clinics, long-term care and post-acute care

(LTPAC) facilities. This integration capability will allow members to

gain a more complete view of patient care across the continuum,

helping them improve coordination of care while reducing costs.

Among the factors that differentiate Clinical Care Exchange is

BlueStep/BridgeGate Health's reputation for rapid implementation,

high-performance data integration and interoperability solutions that

can be easily maintained by the members' staff. Simple,

anything-to-anything integration means complex data can be aggregated

from multiple sources without the headaches normally associated with

data interchange projects. Data is passed transparently, even between

seemingly incompatible sources, which will enable Amerinet members to

turn data into actionable information faster.

"Amerinet has demonstrated its ability to find effective, innovative

solutions that help members solve real-world problems," said Tom Bang,

CEO of BlueStep/BridgeGate Health. "We are proud that Clinical Care

Exchange has now been added to that list. Our goal is always to ensure

that technology is supporting quality care rather than getting in the

way of it. This new partnership allows Amerinet's members to take

better advantage of the patient data being created internally and by

other providers to deliver the type of care we all want for our loved

ones."

About Amerinet, Inc. As a leading national healthcare solutions

organization, Amerinet collaborates with acute and non-acute care

providers to create and deliver unique solutions through performance

improvement resources, guidance and ongoing support. With better

product standardization and utilization, new financial tools beyond

contracting and alliances that help lower costs, raise revenue and

members and the communities they serve. To learn more about how
