Washington, DC (May 27, 2009)-This month, Atlanta, Georgia-based Jackson Healthcare LLC, joined the Center for Health Transformation (CHT). Jackson Healthcare is a family of companies that provides physician, nurse and allied health staffing, anesthesia management and healthcare information technology solutions to over 1,000 U.S. hospitals.

"We are working to improve the way healthcare is delivered," explained Richard Jackson, Chairman and CEO of Jackson Healthcare. "Partnering with visionary organizations like the Center for Health Transformation is a critical step toward achieving that goal."

CHT is excited to work with Jackson Healthcare and its growing base of healthcare services, including StatCom-a web-based software solution for patient-flow management across an entire health system.

Through its project on health information technology, CHT will also work with Jackson Healthcare to orchestrate an integrated, multi-stakeholder approach to Jackson's vision for a fully integrated hospital operating system that provides instant communication of patient status to maximize patient throughput and capacity.

"We at the Center for Health Transformation are delighted to work with Jackson Healthcare in the coming year," said Founder Newt Gingrich. "Their organization has done an extraordinary job of creating innovative, real-world solutions that improve patient safety, increase operational efficiencies and reduce the cost of clinical programs."

About the Center for Health Transformation (CHT)

The Center for Health Transformation is a high-impact collaboration of private and public sector leaders committed to creating a 21st Century Intelligent Health System that saves lives and saves money for all Americans. CHT is based on the following premise: Small changes or reactionary fixes to separate pieces of the current system have not and will not work. We need a system-wide transformation. Unlike other alliances, CHT unites stakeholders across the spectrum (providers, employers, vendors, trade associations, disease groups, think tanks) and government leaders at both the state and federal level to drive transformation according to a shared vision and key principles.
