Stix, the software system you use today, will undergo a name change to Agility. Net Health has a variety of information system options to meet the needs of Employee Health, Occupational Medicine, Urgent Care, and Workplace Health. These applications all share the same common architecture and database. To highlight their interconnectedness, Net Health has standardized the naming convention by using the product family name of Agility. The name change from Sitx to Agility will occur during the next software Version 10.0.40315 scheduled for release on Monday, 3/17/14.

Q: What is Agility?
A: Agility is the name of the suite of Net Health solutions designed to meet the needs and requirements of Hospital Employee Health, Occupational Medicine, Urgent Care, and Workplace Health.
Q: Is the Stix application going away?
A: No. The features and functionality that you rely on will remain untouched. Upgrading to Version 10.0.40315 you’ll notice slight cosmetic changes to the software such as the replacement of the Stix logo with the Agility logo and a modified color scheme.
Q: Why did the colors change?
A: To unify the Agility products and reflect the overall Net Health brand.
Q: When will this upgrade be made available?
A: Monday, 3/17/14.
Q: Do I have to update my system?
A: No. You still have the option to upgrade when it is convenient for you. As always, we encourage you to keep current on the latest version of the software to ensure that you have the most current features and enhancements available.
Q: Is the common system architecture a new development?
No. Prior to Net Health’s acquisition of the company in May 2013, one of the key features of the original Integritas line of solutions was the common system architecture shared by all of their products. The initial software offering, Stix, established the foundation for future development. When AgilityEHR was launched in May 2010, the product became an extension of the Stix database with sophisticated “switches” to turn on and off features within the software. For example, Stix customers interested in purchasing an EMR/EHR were able to add this functionality without the need for a database conversion or the development of interfaces.
Q: What is the significance of a common architecture and database?
A: You can easily add optional modules to your existing configuration. For example if you only use the employee health functions you can add the occupational medicine module without having to backload employee records.
Q: Will there be changes in how Net Health provides service, like client services or implementation?
A: No. Net Health services and contact information will remain unchanged.
Q: Where can I learn more about the changes?
A: Net Health’s Client Services team is standing by to answer your questions and address your concerns. You can reach them at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (814) 941-7006. Additionally, further information can be found on Net Health’s website, www.nethealth.com.
