HealthEdge's Revolutionary Software Platform-HealthRules(R)-Poised to

Change the Rules for Healthcare Payors

BURLINGTON, Mass., April 22 /PRNewswire/ -- HealthEdge, the leading provider of next-generation claims and benefit administration, business intelligence and portal software products for healthcare payors, today announced that it has secured a $13 million investment commitment from Psilos Group, a leading healthcare venture capital and private equity firm.

"We believe that HealthEdge's HealthRules is the only software platform that meets the needs of today's healthcare marketplace," said Dr. Albert Waxman, senior managing member of Psilos Group.

We are extremely pleased to have Psilos Group as our investment partner."
