MDdatacor Extends Contract with Wellmark, Inc.
Date:7/25/2008

Expanded Relationship Based on Significant Improvements in Members' Health

ATLANTA, July 25 /PRNewswire/ -- MDdatacor, Inc., a leader in health care quality management solutions for health plans and providers, today announced it has entered into a long-term agreement with Wellmark, Inc. to continue to support Wellmark's Collaboration on Quality(SM) Incent and Reward Best Practices initiative, a collaboration between Wellmark and primary care clinicians to promote improved quality health care and increased efficiency.

Wellmark, Inc. does business as Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Iowa. Wellmark and its subsidiaries and affiliated companies, insure or pay health benefit claims for more than two million members in Iowa and South Dakota.

MDdatacor has been working with Wellmark since 2006 to support initiatives that promote quality health care and increased efficiency.

MDdatacor is currently the only company able to provide its customers with both claims and comprehensive clinical data, making the data more accurate, timely and, ultimately, valuable.
