Subtitle: CompuGroup Medical invests 130 million euros in the healthcare system

Koblenz (euro adhoc) - July 28, 2011: How does the linked healthcare system of
the future function? At present, every physician maintains patient data in an
isolated fashion, recording only the treatment he provided. However, illnesses
frequently have a mutual causality and require an integrated therapeutic
approach. A comprehensive patient history is therefore extremely helpful for
optimum care, with easy access to all relevant diagnoses and therapies by all
physicians during the course of a patient´s life. This is precisely what
CompuGroup Medical is setting out to accomplish.

During the next five years, CompuGroup Medical AG will invest 130 million euros
for innovations in the healthcare system. One of the future-oriented product
developments is the web-based personal health record, CGM Life. It enables the
electronic exchange between medical service providers. Elaborate data
collections and repeat analyses will thereby become a thing of the past -
through linking various facilities, e.g. medical office, pharmacy, hospital or
rehabilitation facility, many local health records will turn into one central
web-based file. It bundles all of a patient´s relevant medical data.

Integrated information for optimized treatment
CGM Life differs from many other health records in that it is assigned to the
patient and serves him, the owner of the record, as storage for his personal
health information, but is primarily filled with data coming directly from the
information systems of the treating physicians, pursuant to their stipulations.
Due to the immediate access to correspondingly valid data, the physicians are
able to directly utilize the information at hand. In addition, they can also
utilize the advantages of automated processes on the basis of this structured
information. These processes are made available through the CGM Software
Assisted Medicine (SAM) systems and offer physicians a variety of services
(e.g. medical guidelines, automated prescription drug checks, risk assessment
and recommendations for a course of action). In addition, rather than spending
a lot of time instructing patients, physicians are able to enter general as
well as patient-specific information into the file - allowing them to devote
more time on important points while talking to their patients.

Data protection at the highest level
CompuGroup Medical´s safety procedures not only fulfill the legal data
protection requirements, but far exceed them: all sensitive data is already
encrypted in the medical office and is then transferred via an additionally
secured network. The protection of health data is thusly warranted at all
times. Only the patient and physicians authorized by him/her are able to view
the medical data and unauthorized third parties aren´t able to do so, even in
theory. Technologically, CompuGroup Medical is a worldwide leader with these
patented safety procedures during a time where data protection is becoming
increasingly more important.

 Medical office example:
 During the consultation, lab  results  that  were  initiated  by  the  primary
 physician one week ago can be reviewed in the doctor information system  (DIS)
 by the specialist providing further care. They do not  have  to  be  specially
 ordered and recorded, nor do they need to be redone.  Scheduling  the  patient
 for another appointment, for example to draw blood, is just as unnecessary  as
 the time-consuming inquiry either by phone or in writing  to  obtain  the  lab
 values from the primary physician.  Having the  authenticated  information  at
 hand provides the physician with the best data base for efficient treatment.

 After he has concluded the discussion with the patient, the physician is  able
 to upload copies of general  information,  findings,  confirmed  diagnoses  or
 medication prescribed  into  the  central  health  record.  Transferring  data
 between a local and a central health record is easy - the systems  are  linked
 through interfaces.
