Date:11/5/2007

- Software Meets 100 Percent of Newly Launched Inpatient Certification

Criteria -

ATLANTA, Nov. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT(sm)) today announced that the Eclypsis Corporation(R) (Nasdaq: ECLP), The Outcomes Company(R), product Sunrise Acute Care(TM) 4.5 SP 4, a module of Sunrise Clinical Manager(TM), is CCHIT Certified(sm), and meets the Commission's newly launched inpatient electronic health record (EHR) criteria for 2007. Inpatient EHRs are designed for use in acute care hospitals. The Commission -- an independent, nonprofit organization -- is the Recognized Certification Body in the United States for certifying health information technology products.

In addition to meeting foundation standards such as security, certified inpatient products are examined for clinician order entry (often called CPOE) and medication administration capabilities (often called eMAR), including related clinical decision support. As a CCHIT Certified product, Sunrise Acute Care 4.5 has been tested and passed inspection of 100 percent of a set of criteria for CPOE and eMAR. The Commission focused certification testing on these areas first because they have the lowest rate of adoption in hospitals but are thought to offer the highest value for improvement of care.

"Eclipsys has long been a leader in CPOE, as our Knowledge-Based CPOE(TM) system is the most widely used in the industry, and we are very excited that Sunrise Acute Care is one of the first products to pass such a thorough evaluation for CPOE as well as eMAR," said Bob Elson, MD, Eclipsys chief medical officer. "We share the same belief as the Commission that CPOE is one of the most important ways for a healthcare organization to improve care delivery, which is why we are committed to helping our clients achieve high levels of CPOE adoption."

Since it first announced certifications for ambulatory EHR software products in July of 2006, the Commission has raised the bar for ambulatory EHRs and expanded its certification scope to the inpatient care setting.

"We're very proud of achieving CCHIT certification for Sunrise Acute Care given the rigor of testing the Commission required in this first inpatient round," said Jay Deady, Eclipsys executive vice president, Client Solutions. "Unlike many of our competitors, Eclipsys clinical solutions have an integrated advanced rules engine and are all on the same integrated Eclipsys XA architecture. We believe this is vital to meet the increasingly challenging requirements of the Commission for both the acute and ambulatory environments."

"The thorough inspection process ensures that certified products have demonstrated their ability to have a positive impact on the quality and safety of patient care," said Mark Leavitt, M.D., Ph.D., chair of the Commission. "I'd like to congratulate the first round of certified product companies, who now represent the leading edge in advanced EHR products for the inpatient setting."

The CCHIT Certified mark -- a "seal of approval" for EHR products -- provides the first consensus-based, government-recognized benchmark for inpatient EHR products. By looking to products with the CCHIT Certified seal, acute care providers can reduce their risk in selecting EHR products for CPOE and eMAR.

CCHIT's certification compliance criteria and its design for a certification inspection process have been thoroughly researched, taking into account the state of the art of EHRs and available standards, and comparing certification processes in other industries and other countries. The inspection process is based on real-life medical scenarios designed to test products rigorously against the clinical needs of providers and the quality and safety needs of healthcare consumers and payers. One script, for example, recreates a scenario of a middle-aged man admitted through the emergency department after sustaining fractures in an automobile accident. The script tests the ability of the EHR to provide clinical decision support during the ordering and administration of medications, and to track whether laboratory and radiology orders have been entered and received.
