THERAPY TRACK ANNOUNCES VHA SOUTHWEST MEMBERSHIP

Internet-Based Productivity Software Provides Operations Management Tool for Directors and Managers of Physical, Occupational, Speech, and Rehab Therapy Departments

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 7, 2005-- Therapy Track, an online provider of management tools for hospitals, announced today that it has become a Supplier company with VHA Southwest.

Therapy Track(TM) offers hospitals an Internet-based software tool that effectively improves productivity and reduces cost per unit of service and is designed for use by directors and managers of physical, occupational, speech, and rehab therapy departments.

Therapy Track(TM) provides up-to-the-minute, real time information that makes it more effective than monthly reporting devices that summarize past performance. Goal setting, benchmarking, trend charts, and reports for administration and performance reviews are just a few of the program's features.

Founder and CEO Richard Tinsley helped change therapy services in America in the 1970s with his development of one of the first physical therapy services contracting companies, Tinsley Physical Therapy, which became the model for similar companies across the nation. "The Therapy Track(TM) product is a fantastic continuation of thirty years of working in and with hospitals and therapy departments," states Tinsley. "Teaming up with a group as prestigious as VHA, and bringing Therapy Track(TM) to the VHA Southwest organizations is definitely an exciting opportunity for us."

Therapy Track has signed a three-year agreement with VHA Southwest and will market itself to the members of the VHA Southwest regional health care system on preferred terms. Marge Montgomery, vice president of VHA Southwest, states, "Therapy Track is a proven solution for improving operations within therapy/rehabilitation departments. We welcome the new partnership and appreciate the beneficial value that will be brought to our members."

VHA Southwest will launch Therapy Track(TM) with its members over the upcoming weeks.
