Date:4/21/2008

MINNEAPOLIS, April 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Argenta Advisors(TM), a leading national life science reimbursement consulting firm, announced today that Dr. Elizabeth Brown has joined the team as a medical director for its subsidiary, Argenta TEC(TM).

Argenta TEC, under the leadership of Chief Medical Officer Dr. Brent O'Connell, guides life science companies through the complexities of medical technology review and payer coverage. Argenta TEC facilitates the coverage process for medical technologies by providing insight into the payer review process, technology reviews and assessments, and assistance with coverage challenges. Brown's experience enables Argenta TEC to extend its offerings with coverage gap analyses, technology reviews and medical director advisory boards.

Brown has spent over 20 years in technology assessment and coverage policy development, working for national payers such as Aetna, the BlueCross BlueShield Association and Wellpoint Health Networks. For 10 of those years, she led the medical policy department at the BlueCross BlueShield Association, where she was responsible for developing and maintaining all medical policies, reviewing over 200 different technologies every year.

"I've been in technology assessment long enough to see the entire life cycle of technologies," said Brown. "This allows me to get up to speed very quickly in order to frame the issues as seen through payers' eyes."

Brown added, "I look forward to working with Argenta because both Dr. O'Connell and I are able to take a practical approach to issues, and will be able to provide very logical, straightforward direction."

"Elizabeth brings a depth of experience and expert analytical skills seldom seen in the technology arena. I am particularly delighted that she has joined our group of highly talented individuals," O'Connell said. "We look forward to expanding our proficiencies with her addition."

Brown also has extensive experience in writing continuing medical education material for the American Medical Association and the National Comprehensive Cancer Networks, where she served as a senior oncology adviser.

A native of the Chicago area, Brown earned her medical degree from the University of Illinois and completed her pathology residency at Rush Presbyterian St. Luke's Medical Center, where she served as chief resident.
