PointOne Launches New Business Direction, Healthcare Analytics Beyond Hospitals
Date:6/10/2008

Sophisticated healthcare analytics is no longer just for doctors as

PointOne provides technology to anyone with electronic health data.

WAUWATOSA, Wis., June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- PointOne Systems, LLC (PointOne) announced today that its health data analytics tool, known as RedBox Technology, will begin providing reports to anyone wanting to analyze individual health data, a dramatic change from the industry's focus on hospitals, research laboratories and healthcare providers. Historically, tools used to analyze the health of a patient or risk factors for various diseases, including numerous cancers, heart disease, diabetes, hypertension and many other common health risks were limited to hospitals, doctors or insurance companies. PointOne's announcement changes that model.

"Consumers are more sophisticated than ever when it comes to healthcare," says Dr. Peter J. Tonellato, Ph.D., a Bioinformatics Scientist at Harvard Medical School and Founder and Chairman of PointOne. "The Internet has created a new kind of healthcare consumer and those types of consumers demand targeted information about their own health." PointOne's RedBox Technology takes in health information and generates sophisticated but consumer-friendly reports that identify potential health issues. "For example," Tonellato points out, "it is well understood in the medical and genetics communities that family history is a huge indicator of possible health issues and yet consumers don't have access to family history assessment tools." PointOne has such a capability.

This new direction was implemented by Robert Pothier, PointOne's new President and CEO. Pothier left GE Healthcare last December after nine years and joined PointOne in an attempt to reposition the company. "I saw PointOne with an incredibly valuable technology but an antiquated business model," Pothier said. "Healthcare consumers want relevant information about their health whether it's from a doctor visit, lab results, blood donation center, fitness club, weight loss program or the Internet. PointOne makes it possible to get that information from any of those sources."
