HARTFORD, Wis. --(Business Wire)--
Healthcare, the leader in healthcare-specific workforce management
technology, today announced a 60 percent year-over-year increase in

"Our strong financial performance in 2012 is highlighted by double-digit
growth in sales bookings, revenue and EBITDA," said J.P.
Fingado, president and chief executive officer, API Healthcare.
"That growth positions API Healthcare to continue to deliver innovative
solutions and our distinctive strong service levels to the market. As
the healthcare industry continues to adapt to the dynamic challenges of
healthcare reform, we anticipate the increased demand for innovative workforce
management solutions will carry over into 2013 and well beyond."
"The growth trajectory can be attributed to a number of factors.
Decreasing reimbursements, increasing health system operating expenses
and more focus on quality have directed healthcare executives to place a
great deal of attention on the labor pool," said Fingado. "With labor
costs amounting to an estimated 60 percent of these operating costs, and
the need to optimize the placement of staffing resources from both a
financial and quality perspective, many leading healthcare systems are
shifting to API Healthcare's integrated platform of staffing, time and
attendance, human resources and paroll and talent management solutions."

CPHIMS, Kadlec Regional Medical Center, Richland, WA. "API Healthcare
helped us combine this commitment to quality with innovative, workforce
technology solutions to develop the electronic employee record for our
organization - providing for better efficiency of our entire workforce.
Kadlec looks forward to many more years of successful partnership as we
collaborate to ensure our mutual success."
