Date:1/19/2009

DALLAS, Jan. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The business unit specializing in healthcare services at Affiliated Computer Services, Inc. (NYSE: ACS), has been awarded the highest ranking in a national survey for the second consecutive year.

ACS Healthcare Solutions received the first place award for its work in the Financial Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Implementation category for the 2008 Top 20 Best in KLAS Awards: Software & Professional Services report, issued by healthcare market research firm KLAS.

"This ranking validates ACS Healthcare Solutions' depth of expertise and commitment to improving the financial performance of our clients' organizations," said David Bywater, managing director, ACS Healthcare Solutions. "Receiving this distinction in two consecutive years demonstrates our clients' satisfaction with the value and results that we bring to their organizations through our comprehensive solutions."

Overall, ACS was ranked among the top five professional service firms in the KLAS report. Additionally, the company was ranked in the top five in several other professional services categories, including Technical Services, Clinical Implementation Principal, Revenue Cycle Transformation, Vendor Selection and Other Implementation Services.

KLAS is an independent firm that helps healthcare providers make informed technology decisions by monitoring and measuring the delivery of information technology to healthcare organizations. This annual year-end report is a summary of performance data and evaluations collected from healthcare provider organizations. It includes a ranking of the top vendors in several key areas of performance.

"As economic conditions become more challenging, healthcare providers are under tremendous pressure to make every investment - and every dollar - count," said KLAS president Adam Gale. "The Best in KLAS awards were created to help providers make smart buying decisions, allowing them to cut through the hype to identify companies, products and services that are the best-performing in the healthcare industry. The 2008 Best in KLAS honorees represent a select group of healthcare software and services vendors that have demonstrated leadership in working with customers to resolve issues and match expectations to reality."

ACS Healthcare Solutions provides hospitals, clinics, and medical practitioners around the world with information technology, clinical solutions and a full array of management services so healthcare providers can operate more efficiently and effectively using world-class consulting and outsourcing services. ACS helps its clients reduce costs, enhance revenue, increase productivity and improve patient care. This is one of four divisions focused on the healthcare market for ACS. The other three include ACS' government healthcare line of business which focuses on state and federal health programs such as Medicaid and Medicare, a healthcare payer group and an informational technology group.

This is the second consecutive year that ACS Healthcare Solutions has earned the top ranking in the Financial Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Implementation category, which was formerly called Financial Implementation Principal.
