Date:7/21/2008

MONTGOMERY, Ala. and HUNTSVILLE, Ala., July 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Health Care Systems, Inc. (HCS), a leading provider of medication safety solutions and the market leader in medication reconciliation solutions, has entered into an agreement with Huntsville Hospital System, one of the largest locally owned not-for-profit hospitals in the nation with 881 licensed acute care beds. Huntsville Hospital serves as a teaching facility for The University of Alabama at Birmingham's Family Medicine Residency Program in Huntsville. In addition, the hospital serves as a primary site for more than 50 national drug research projects. Huntsville Hospital System has used HCS Medication Reconciliation house-wide since March 2008.

HCS Medication Reconciliation, Health Care Systems' automated medication history service, enables reducing preventable adverse medication events, promoting operational efficiencies, and improving compliance with The Joint Commission National Patient Safety Goal 8a. HCS Medication Reconciliation provides hospitals with the ability to retrieve community pharmacy prescription fill and refill information at the time of patient admission.

"HCS looks forward to working with Huntsville Hospital in the use of HCS Medication Reconciliation in their hospitals. HCS Medication Reconciliation will help Huntsville meet their goals of clinician time savings and improved patient safety," said Dwight Henderson, CEO, Health Care Systems. Utilizing historical prescription information, HCS Medication Reconciliation automatically pushes a patient's medication history to the clinician at time and point of admission in the form of a printed or electronic report. This data is further enhanced by providing alerts related to duplicate therapy, potential interactions, and compliance. HCS Medication Reconciliation adds an additional layer of accuracy and confidence for the caregiver assigned to collecting this information. Utilizing HCS' Interface engine, which has successfully interfaced with many Hospital Information Systems and Automated Dispensing Devices, makes the implementation quick, easy, and vendor neutral.

Huntsville Hospital System Pharmacy Manager Jack Adams stated: "We're excited about using HCS Medication Reconciliation to improve medication reconciliation at our hospital. We plan to improve patient safety with the use of this solution."

Huntsville Hospital Project Manager Richa Airee stated: "The dedication of the HCS team is above and beyond anything I've ever experienced in implementation and support of a software solution. It is a pleasure to work with each of them."
