Date:4/22/2008

Sentinel RCM(TM) Now Provides Compliance to a Challenging New Federal

Regulation

DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla., April 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Sentry Data Systems, Inc. today announced the availability of DRA Tool(TM), a new feature of its Sentinel RCM(TM) pharmacy revenue cycle management product. DRA Tool(TM) is a reporting and claims editing module that comprehensively supports the additional reporting requirements of Section 6002 of the Federal Deficit Reduction Act (DRA).

About The Deficit Reduction Act

The Federal Deficit Reduction Act (DRA), Section 6002, requires Medicaid participating ambulatory care providers to report the National Drug Code (NDC) when billing for physician administered medications on Medicaid claims. NDC numbers uniquely identify a pharmaceutical's vendor, product, and trade package size, and are maintained by the Food and Drug Administration. The previously unreported NDC is now required on claims submitted to Medicaid in addition to the currently required CPT/HCPCs codes and units.

DRA Tool(TM) Brings Comprehensive, Automated Compliance

Sentry's DRA Tool(TM) automatically matches the correct 11 digit NDCs with appropriate outpatient procedure codes to allow for uninterrupted claims payment by a state's Medicaid Program. Tracking the 11 Digit NDC provides a new mechanism for individual states to maximize their Medicaid rebates from manufacturers and is financially critical for states and responsible entities.

"Sentinel RCM's DRA Tool(TM) provides hospitals with immediate billing compliance by either electronically editing claims as they are submitted and by providing reports that comply with each state's individual requirements, " said Travis Leonardi RPh., C.P. President and Founder of Sentry Data Systems.

Existing Sentinel RCM(TM) customers need only contact Sentry for activation, and new customers can benefit from Sentry's experience in installing the required
