Koblenz (euro adhoc) - PRESS RELEASE

@@start.t2@@CompuGROUP is starting a new family of products for an integrated system
         of treatment with the AOK Hessen

         Koblenz - 24th  October  2007:    The  CompuGROUP  Holding  AG,  a  leading
         European  eHealth  services  provider,  has  issued  a    report    on    the
         introduction of a new product portfolio for  the  electronic  handling  of
         innovative,  integrated  forms  of  treatment:  In  the  coming  weeks    a
         completely new approach to treatment in the form of the pilot project "AOK
         aktiv + vital" is to be tried out in selected  regions  of  the  State  of
         Hesse. The partner in this is the AOK Hessen.

         Following  the  example  of  large  Disease  Management  Companies  on  an
         international level, CompuGROUP had, at the beginning of this year, called
         into existence a Management Company incorporating  the  key  functions  of
         Medicinal Path Development, Decision  Support,  Disease  Management,  Case
         Management, Benchmarking and  Financial  Clearing.  This  is  CompuGROUP´s
         subsidiary "Gesellschaft  für  Integrierte  Versorgung  mbH  (GIV)".  This
         company takes care of the required, comprehensive service in  the  context
         of "AOK aktiv + vital".

         Alongside the technical realisation, the incorporation of the  content  of
         current medical guidelines  in  a  way  suitable  for  everyday  use,  the
         definition of clear  target  parameters,  the  close  involvement  of  the
         patients and a  system  of  remuneration  for  the  participating  doctors
         directed towards the health improvements made are the facts that point the
         way forward from the company's point of view.

         Beginning with the widespread disease Diabetes Type 2 continual  treatment
         paths are made available, indication based.  Many  other  indications  are
         being prepared for the State of Hesse. At the centre of interest  in  this
         are current medical guidelines that have been selected by leading experts,
         prepared for "AOK aktiv + vital" and made available  in  a  form  that  is
         suitable for the daily practice. The Medical Information System recognises
         autonomously which of the defined guideline options are best suited to the
         respective patient and can suggest this to the doctor in  each  individual
         case at the moment the decision is to be made. The most up-to-date medical
         knowledge is thus always available at the  time  when  the  doctor  really
         needs it.

         "With "AOK aktiv + vital" we underline once more our offer  of  supporting
         today already treatment possibilities that will be available in the future
         on the basis of innovative Medical Decision Support Systems.  And  with  a
         powerful partner such as the AOK Hessen at our side, this can be  realised
         in a form that can set standards country-wide. It is our declared  aim  to
         establish the new family of products  now  being  introduced  consequently
         across the whole country," emphasises Jan Broer, board member  responsible
         for Health Connectivity Services of CompuGROUP Holding AG.

         Leading Medical Information Systems such as ALBIS, TURBOMED, MEDISTAR  and
         M1, reproduce the overall project in a practical manner  in  the  doctors'
         computers, reduce the amount of administration and support the  doctor  in
         his work and in the decisions that are to be  taken.  Hereby  the  company
         strictly  observes  the  current  medical  framework  conditions  and  the
         greatest possible amount of independence in medical questions.

         "We are very proud of the fact that leading medical experts are supporting
         us in the conception and realisation of "AOK aktiv + vital" and  are  also
         helping to shape this innovative path from a scientific point of view." So
         says Dr. med. Dierk Heimann,  who  is  the  medical  head  of  project  at
         CompuGROUP.
