MEDecision Receives Recognition from Department of Commerce

August 3, 2007 — MEDecision Inc., a provider of software, services and clinical content to healthcare payers, received a "Recognition of Excellence in Innovation Certificate" from the United States Department of Commerce, which honors local and regional innovators nationwide who have introduced a new product or service into the market, utilized a new manufacturing process, or received a patent from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

MEDecision received the honor for its Patient Clinical Summary (PCS), a clinically validated, payer-based electronic health record that compiles an individual's current and historical medical data from doctors, labs, pharmacies and other sources and augments it with evidence-based medicine to create care plans and highlight treatment opportunities.

The PCS is then delivered to the point of care through a secure Web portal to give physicians a more complete picture of a patient's medical history. This enables physicians to make faster and more informed medical decisions, which MEDecision believes can reduce waste, lower costs and facilitate better health care outcomes. It is currently being implemented for a total of 16 million people in the United States.
