QuadraMed Scores Four EHR Wins with QCPR Clinical Information System

RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 26, 2009-- QuadraMed® Corporation (NASDAQ:QDHC) today announced that three health systems in the U.S., and one healthcare organization based in Toronto, Canada have licensed QuadraMed CPR (QCPR). QCPR is an enterprise-wide computerized patient record and electronic health record system that includes closed-loop medication management, Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE), clinical decision support, and integrated laboratory and radiology management systems. QCPR includes a multi-entity, patient-centric database and has achieved significant market recognition through its numerous awards and long-standing client base.

The three U.S. healthcare organizations plan to use QCPR to help enable them to receive funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) act. QCPR has a proven track record of gaining high levels of clinician adoption with CPOE and integrated medication management. QCPR will help enable these clients to automate their clinical operations in order to better meet future requirements of the ARRA and HITECH acts.

"As the momentum of EHR adoption continues, we are pleased to support each of these health systems in their quest to improve their clinical quality and efficiency. I'm also pleased that our solutions will assist the three U.S. hospitals in their efforts to secure ARRA and HITECH funds," said Duncan W. James, QuadraMed's President and CEO. "In coming years, the ‘meaningful use' criteria may require hospitals to demonstrate extensive CPOE deployment in order to receive the maximum value of these funds," he added. "QuadraMed's QCPR clients in the U.S. and in Canada have deployed our CPOE solution extensively for years, and these four new contracts help to validate QCPR as a proven and functionally robust EHR."
