Quadient Case Study

Healthcare Therapy Services

Introduction

This case study of Healthcare Therapy Services is based on a December 2019 survey of Quadient customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

Providing physical, occupational and speech therapy in the post-acute and hospital settings is challenging and ever changing. The clients at Healthcare Therapy Services (HTS) look to them to not only maintain exceptional clinical collaboration and outcomes, but also to be a trusted partner in helping their organizations perform better. Since 1988, HTS has been an independently owned, trusted, ethical provider of therapy services for senior living communities, home health agencies and hospitals. They have grown from a single provider to a company employing over 1,800 therapists in the Midwest and Southern states.

Challenges

The core business challenge that led Healthcare Therapy Services (HTS) to acquire a new mailing system was the need to increase speed and productivity when processing mail.

Use Case

During the review process, HTS selected Quadient’s mailing system because of its simple screen and user interface. The system also gave them the ability to process between 1,001-5,000 envelopes per month and the ability to apply USPS First Class Mail postage.

The other provider HTS considered before selecting Quadient was USPS Stamps. Quadient ranked better than USPS Stamps in these critical areas:

  • Sales engagement, consultation process: significantly better
  • Service technician support: best
  • Equipment features: significantly better
  • Equipment reliability: significantly better
  • Reputation: significantly better
  • Customer support (by phone or web): better

Results

Once the Quadient mailing system was adopted, HTS increased mailing operation productivity and they gained ease of operation of the mailing system.

Aside from these main benefits, HTS estimated the following impact on their organization:

  • Increased productivity: >50%
  • Reduced manual mail-assembly processes: 10-25%
  • Lowered costs in mailing operations: >50%
  • Improved their ability to process high document volumes: >50%
  • Eliminated errors in applying postage rate: >50%
  • Improved employee/user satisfaction: >50%
  • Improved speed and deliverability rates to mail recipient: >50%
