Date:12/4/2007

ATLANTA, GA, Dec. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - MedcomSoft(R) Inc., a provider of the next generation of interoperable electronic health records (EHRs), announced today that James Haveman, a prominent health and human services expert who was appointed in 2003 by President George W. Bush to the Iraq Coalition Provisional Authority, has joined the MedcomSoft Healthcare Advisory Board. Members of the Board are drawn from both the public and private sector and provide guidance on several corporate programs, including product enhancements and strategic marketing.

"We are very impressed by the distinguished service Jim Haveman has brought to the highest levels of government, business, and human services, and by his strong leadership and expertise in shaping health policy," says Sami Aita, MD, founder and CEO of MedcomSoft. "This experience and expertise will enhance the development and market uptake of our product offerings, propelling the recognition of our company as a source of the most robust, integrated health care data available."

In addition to his new appointment to the MedcomSoft Advisory Board, Haveman is currently a member of the Defense Business Board of the U.S. Department of Defense and the International Aid Board of Directors, among others, and has served on nearly 70 other healthcare and social service boards throughout his career.

Haveman served from 2003 to 2004 as Senior Advisor for Health to the Ministry of Health in Iraq where he oversaw reconstruction of a healthcare system that has 120,000 employees and serves nearly 26 million citizens. In that time, Haveman also served as deputy to the Director of Civil Affairs in the Iraq Coalition Provisional Authority, assisting with the coordination of 13 ministries.

A resident of Michigan, Haveman has served in leadership positions within government and non-profit health agencies for 31 years, including terms as the director of the Michigan Department of Public Health and the Michigan Department of Mental Health. He spent 12 years in cabinet-level positions under Governor John Engler of Michigan. In 1996, Engler named Haveman the first director of the Michigan Department of Community Health - an agency that consolidated a number of healthcare functions into one department and that provided care to 1.5 million people. Haveman held that position until 2003.

Havemen is a graduate of Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where he received the Distinguished Alumnus Award in 2000. A member of the National Association of Social Workers and the Academy of Certified Social Workers, Haveman has garnered more than 20 professional and civic service awards, including the U.S. Department of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service (2004) and the Detroit News Michiganian of the Year Award (2004).

"MedcomSoft exemplifies the power of a pioneering spirit to drive innovation, and I am honored to be a part of its distinguished Advisory Board," says Haveman, president of the Haveman Group, a consulting firm specializing in business development, health policy, media relations, management assessment, and government relations, "MedcomSoft Record, a fully integrated Electronic Health Record (EHR) and practice management solution, represents a significant step toward a truly interoperable healthcare system. I also expect that it will play an important role in improving patient care as well as the quality of life for physicians and their staff."
