Summa Health Network Announces Contract with MDdatacor to Support Multi-Insurer Health Care Quality Initiative; Initiative to Use Clinical Data to Supplement Claims Data and Enhance Outcomes
Date:1/5/2009

ATLANTA, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- MDdatacor, Inc., a leader in health care quality management solutions for insurers and health care providers, today announced a new contract with Summa Health Network (SHN), the physician-hospital organization of Summa Health System, one of the largest organized delivery healthcare systems in Ohio. SHN is currently participating in a quality initiative with two national insurers and one regional insurer, all of which have historically relied solely on claims data for quality analysis.

MDdatacor will support SHN's multi-payer health care quality initiative through its patented and interoperable CareInformatix(TM) technology, which will enable SHN and its insurers to compare claims-based data to actual clinical data. Clinical data is better suited for providing physicians with actionable data as part of a quality initiative.

"Providing quality care to our patients is at the very core of our mission as a healthcare organization," said Charles Vignos, President of Summa Health Network. "Through our payer clinical quality initiative, we are taking our commitment to quality to the next level by providing our physicians with another important toolset. By utilizing MDdatacor's technology, we will be able to work with our physicians to ensure that together we continue to provide the very best care available."

The focus of SHN's initiative is to use evidence-based, clinical quality measures to monitor diabetes, hypertension, depression, cancer screenings, osteoporosis, hyperlipidemia, asthma, smoking cessation, immunizations, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) among SHN physicians' patient populations.

"SHN understands that clinical data is more comprehensive, accurate, timely and therefore valuable to physicians and, ultimately, their patients," said Tim Roche, co-founder, president and chief executive officer of MDdatacor. "By providin
