Ardent Impressions Partners with Reality Engineering For NPI Data

Entice and Thank Caregivers with Gifts via Easy Sunshine Act Compliance

HCEA, Orlando, FL – June 22, 2012 - Ardent Impressions Inc, the leader in onsite giveaway personalization, has partnered with Reality Engineering Inc, to deliver a unified National Provider Identifier (NPI) lead capture and gift recording solution. Ardent’s Lead STaR (Superior Tracking and Reporting) lead capture, qualification and reporting system has proven a popular complement to their onsite giveaway personalization promotions for several years. By partnering with Reality, Ardent has enhanced Lead STaR with the ability to look up medical practitioner’s NPI numbers and to keep a record of gifts given to them. This satisfies the Sunshine Act requirement that enables medical companies to once again give the small, personal gifts that were so popular among caregivers.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 contains a section called the Physicians Payments Sunshine Act. Many medical companies are starting to give gifts again, as this section specifically allows gifts up to $10 to be given away as long as the annual total from one company to one caregiver does not exceed $100. Through their partnership with Reality, Ardent’s Lead STaR now easily and affordably satisfies the Sunshine Act gift requirements to enable medical firms to attract and thank their valuable clients.

“We evaluated several NPI products and considered developing one ourselves, but after seeing how slick the solution is from Reality Engineering and experiencing how responsive and pleasant they are to work with, we are pleased upgrade Lead STaR with their technology.”, commented Trent Poltronetti, CEO, Ardent Impressions Inc.

Jon Jackson, President of Reality Engineering Inc added, “Ardent’s promotions have been popular with many medical companies for many years and we look forward to the additional exposure this partnership will bring our NPI solution”.
