Date:10/31/2007

PENSACOLA, Fla., Oct. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Cogon Systems, Inc. has been awarded a Research, Development, Test and Evaluation contract by the U.S. Army's Telemedicine & Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC) to develop advanced clinical decision support tools for hand held computer use.

The primary goal of the project is to determine if using mobile technology in an inpatient setting to deliver clinical decision support through rapid retrieval of clinical data, intelligently filtered clinical knowledge, and appropriately generated alerts and reminders, will positively impact patient care while concurrently achieving physician's acceptance, efficiency and education. The project will rely upon technology provided by Cogon Systems Mobile MOMENT OF CARE(R) software application. Cogon's product leverages data already residing within a hospital's inpatient information system thus preserving existing infrastructure investments and will serve as the foundation to which advanced clinical decision support modules will be appended. The project's overarching objective is applicable to all Medical Treatment Facility or Combat Support Hospitals.

The project's beta site will be DeWitt Army Community Hospital located at Fort Belvoir, VA and the contract period runs through July, 2008. DeWitt's Family Practice Residency is the second oldest family practice residency in the Army and it is planned that a number of residents in training will participate in the demonstration phase.

TATRC is a subordinate element of the United States Army Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC) and is charged with managing core Research Development Test and Evaluation (RDT&E) and congressionally mandated projects in telemedicine and advanced medical technologies.

Cogon Systems, Inc. is a Pensacola, Florida based healthcare software company that provides hospitals & community based health organizations with leading edge health information technology solutions. Cogon Systems raises the standard for patient safety and clinical efficiency through data integration and mobile technology.
