Intergy EHR by Sage on Short List of EMR Market Leaders
Date:9/8/2008

Report offers physician practices of all sizes a tool to help them select

appropriate EHR/EMR

TAMPA, Fla., Sept. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- In a report released this week by Health Industry Insights, Intergy EHR by Sage earned top scores for ambulatory electronic health records (EHR).

The report, titled Healthcare Provider Industry Short List: Ambulatory Electronic Health Records and Electronic Medical Records, identifies the leading ambulatory electronic health record (EHR) and electronic medical record (EMR) solutions. The report is designed to help physician groups of all sizes to select the EMR that best suits their practice, IT environment and business needs, and named Sage among 10 companies whose solutions deliver exceptional levels of performance, usability and productivity to physicians.

This is the first time that Health Industry Insights has issued a list of the country's leading ambulatory EMR vendors. The research focused on vendors with significant market share, more than $10 million in revenue in 2007, novel technologies and/or solutions that were certified by the Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT).

Of the more than 100 EMR vendors, the report focused on just a few industry leaders. "It would be impractical to evaluate every vendor, so we narrowed the field down to a short list that is representative of the EMR industry with the goal of highlighting characteristics that physicians should actively seek -- and avoid -- when purchasing a system," stated Judy Hanover, a research manager at Health Industry Insights who authored the report.

"We were particularly impressed with Sage Software," Hanover said. "There is a perception within the industry that Intergy EHR is just the old Medical Manager product that Sage acquired in 2006, but that isn't the case at all. Intergy is entirely new and users are making excellent use of it to achieve higher quality of care and better outcomes."

During the research, Health Industry Insights independently evaluated vendors' technology offerings and financial viability, and surveyed vendors and their customers based on a comprehensive assessment criteria measuring how well their applications fit market needs. This criteria evaluated general feature/functionality; reporting and decision-support functionality; integration capability/interoperability; integration with physician practice management software; architecture; scalability; breadth of services; quality of services and support; pricing; and implementation cost.

Sage received high scores in each of those areas. It also earned top ratings for the likelihood that it would provide a positive ownership experience for physician practices.

According to Sharon Howard, Senior Vice President of sales and marketing for Sage Software, "We are honored by our strong performance in Health Industry Insights' report. It validates our commitment to strong customer service, and to offering physician practices the most robust and useful functionality to meet their needs."

Ms. Howard continued, "All of our customers -- whether or not they use the Intergy suite, including practice management and electronic health records -- have benefited from the features of this product. For example, many customers who use The Medical Manager by Sage now have the benefit of our Remote Monitoring System (RMS), originally developed for Intergy, to alert them to potential performance issues before they arise. To maintain our leadership, we will continue to make substantial investments in research and development, support and maintenance."

Health Industry Insights, which will update the list periodically, defines EHRs/EMRs as applications that:

-- Provide a digital equivalent of the legal, paper-based medical record;

-- Facilitate a provider's documentation of patient encounters;

-- Organize and format information captured electronically in a

computerized patient record or electronic chart; and

-- Include a clinical data repository
