Central Logic Joins Rackspace® Hosting Partner Network To Deliver Critical Technology Support to Hospital Clients
Industry-Leading Patient Flow Software Developer Teams Up with Award-Winning Company To Offer Enterprise-Level Managed Hosting Services to Hospitals and Healthcare Systems
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — October 13, 2010 — Central Logic, the healthcare industry’s leading provider of innovative patient flow software and consultative expertise, today announced it has joined the Partner Network of Rackspace® Hosting (NYSE: RAX), the world’s leading specialist in the hosting and cloud computing industry, to deliver complementary, enterprise-level managed hosting services to Central Logic’s customer base of respected hospitals and healthcare systems.
The new business development and marketing arrangement delivers additional value to Central Logic’s patient flow software business, increases targeted exposure and brand awareness for both companies, and helps secure new and wider-ranging client acquisitions for the two enterprises.
Under the terms of the agreement, Central Logic will offer managed hosting services from Rackspace to Central Logic prospects and clients during the sales process for its family of branded patient flow management software solutions. The company’s flagship product, Central Logic ForeFront™, is a powerful, easy-to-use Web-based application that gives patient transfer center directors unprecedented control and flexibility in effectively coordinating inbound and outbound patient movements. Due to the complexities and capital expense of on-site hosting, Central Logic solutions are most often hosted in a robust, highly-secure environment that delivers sufficient availability and bandwidth, and facilitates its simultaneous use by multiple medical facilities and transfer center staff members.
“Central Logic’s relationship with Rackspace enables us to effectively address critical information technology needs frequently encountered when deploying Web-based solutions in today’s complex healthcare systems,” said Darin Vercillo, MD, chief executive officer of Central Logic, and a practicing hospital physician. “More importantly, this relationship also gives us the added flexibility to create new, comprehensive bundled packages for customers that now include world-class managed hosting capabilities, and a broad range of other valuable services and benefits. Without question, this enhanced value proposition is more attractive to Central Logic’s transfer center prospects and customers, and it gives Rackspace a larger and more desirable footprint in the rapidly-growing healthcare arena. Above all, Rackspace’s client service and technical support are unequalled, and these characteristics add another exciting and valuable dimension to the overall Central Logic customer experience.”
“The addition of Central Logic to the Rackspace Partner Network gives us greater presence in and access to the expanding healthcare domain, in which there is strong demand for managed hosting and cloud computing services that correct lingering software and hardware issues resulting from using legacy systems and applications,” said Robert Fuller, vice president of worldwide channels sales at Rackspace Hosting. “By closely collaborating with Central Logic and its business development team, Rackspace hopes to reach more decision makers in the nation’s healthcare systems, and demonstrate to them the tremendous value and efficiencies that Rackspace can deliver to these organizations’ information technology operations.”
