IMI Hospital Clients Experience Net ROI of 4:1 for Hospitalist Programs

ST. LOUIS (Dec. 3, 2009) – Inpatient Management, Inc.

IMI is a national provider of comprehensive hospitalist, inpatient management and consulting services.

In addition to the 51% year-over-year increase in revenue, IMI achieved complete operational status with three of the largest hospital medicine programs in their history, including a strategic partnership where IMI designs, staffs, launches, manages and reports on the hospital medicine program, and the client hospital employs the staff and retains ownership of the program.

Among other measures for the company was a 98% fill rate for provider openings and the addition of two new corporate executive positions, Vice President of Business Development and Vice President of Decision Support, Clinical Management, filled by David Cornett and Brenda Hopkins, respectively.

“We are deeply gratified by the growth for our company in 2009,” said Kirk Mathews, CEO and Co-Founder of IMI, “but we are more excited by the positive results our client hospitals have achieved in quality of care and financial performance.” Among the increased performance results IMI clients have reported are:

· Program net return on investment of 4:1

· Patient satisfaction scores of 95%+
· Reductions in Average Length of Stay (ALOS) of 20% - 30%

· Overall IMI patient readmission rates of less than 10%
· Positive bottom line impacts of $4,000,000 to $6,000,000 per year
