Koblenz (euro adhoc) - 06/27/2012: With the development of the SAM technology
(Software Assisted Medicine), CompuGroup Medical AG presents the first proactive
assistance system as an addition to practice software. The technology assists
attending physicians interactively with guideline-based and integrated patient
care. A successful, ongoing pilot project with Knappschaft Bahn See using SAM
Diabetes will be expanded on 01 July 2012.

SAM structures and analyses indication-relevant patient data from the doctor
information system (DIS). The entire treatment process is monitored
comprehensively - from the medical history to the treatment to the long-term
compliance of the patients. Using medical algorithms, SAM provides guidance for
diagnosis and therapy, information about medication and specialist referral
recommendations. Current medical knowledge is displayed for the physician
precisely when he needs it.

Closely coordinated process management and timely indication of the diagnosis
and therapy steps pay off in the long run: thus, project evaluations for SAM
Diabetes, a program for diabetes care, show that treatment costs for the
inpatient therapy are reduced, and patient care is improved. Hans Adolf Müller,
Head of Health Care Management at Knappschaft Bahn See knows: "We have been
successfully using SAM Diabetes from CGM already for several years: the
patients have been shown to be healthier at lower costs. That means not only a
higher quality of life but also a gain for all of us."

An important component of the proactive SAM assistance solution is the
systematic, software-supported networking of the participants involved in the
healthcare system. All indication-related patient data and findings are
available in the DIS to attending physicians through the web. This constitutes
a significant improvement in interdisciplinary cooperation without information
losses. Frank Gotthardt, CEO of CompuGroup Medical AG emphasized: "The high
quality of the intersectoral communication between pharmacists, physicians and
insurance companies under the umbrella of the highest data security standards
is an important step toward the creation of a sustainable, intelligently linked
healthcare system."

The team of experts at CompuGroup Medical has also thought about the topic of
security: to protect patient and physician data during electronic storage and
processing the company has introduced the multi-patented vita-X technology.
This exceeds by far not only the guidelines of the medical associations but
also the security regulations in Germany. "With SAM we meet the physicians'
wish to communicate with other participating professional partners securely and
efficiently while conserving resources," said Gotthardt.

The Knappschaft Bahn See has recognized this and, starting July 2012, is
expanding SAM Diabetes to the prosper networks in the Saarland region and in
Gelsenkirchen/Gladbeck. A total of more than 8,000 diabetes patients can
participate in the program.
