Portland, Ore., December 12, 2017

Clinicient, Inc., a leading provider of business solutions for outpatient rehabilitation backed by growth equity firm Catalyst Investors, today announced its acquisition of Austin-based Keet, Inc., a prominent patient engagement innovator.

The acquisition, centered around connecting clinical process to clinical experience, enhances Clinicient’s robust suite of clinical and financial solutions with the addition of Keet Health’s mobile patient engagement platform. Keet keeps patients engaged with digital care plans, patient education, secure messaging, and care coordination. Simultaneously, Keet streamlines clinic/patient communication with personalized marketing automation and actionable metrics for clinic awareness and growth.

Together with Clinicient’s INSIGHT platform, which combines EMR and revenue cycle management in a single system, Clinicient and Keet are uniquely positioned to deliver the technology and services that allow healthcare providers and systems to achieve a truly superior patient and clinical experience.

“We’re excited to join forces with Keet and we see the Clinicient/Keet combination as a natural extension of our offerings to drive client improvement, both clinically and financially. As the healthcare industry moves from fee-for-service to alternative payment models, systems that enable patients to take a more active role in their healthcare are critical to improved outcomes, better care and reduced costs. By adding mobile, patient-driven solutions to Clinicient’s offerings, we ensure that healthcare providers and systems have the end-to-end tools to attract and engage patients in a more meaningful way,” said T. Kent Rowe, Chief Executive Officer, Clinicient.

A unique aspect of Keet’s solution is an intuitive, leading-edge consumer design. “Today, individuals want and expect the same simplicity, convenience and aesthetic in their healthcare experience that they enjoy as a consumer. We put a tremendous amount of thought into our design and user interface for both the patient and therapist to have a positive impact on their respective days,” said Jon Read, Chief Executive Officer, Keet Health.

Research shows highly engaged, satisfied patients lead to better outcomes and lower costs. “Together, Clinicient and Keet provide a true connected experience. This connection affords providers the visibility and engagement needed to minimize risk and drive revenue in both fee-for-service and value-based payment models. With our technology, providers can do more of what they love, treating patients, while also making quality care more accessible beyond clinic walls,” said Read.

Clinicient and Keet will join forces to bring best-in-class patient engagement solutions to clients, while the combined organization will continue to support other application integrations.

The combined company will maintain offices and teams in Portland, Oregon and Austin, Texas. “We welcome the talented team in Austin and are thrilled at the opportunity to join forces at this exciting time in the market to better serve patients and providers,” said Rowe.
