CareTech Solutions, Inc. and Health Solutions Plus, Inc. Partner to Offer Browser-Based Workflow Automation Suite of Tools

Southfield, Mich. – October 31, 2001 – CareTech Solutions, Inc., the healthcare affiliate of Compuware Corporation, and Health Solutions Plus, Inc. (HSP), a provider of enterprise-wide healthcare payer solutions, announced a partnership that strengthens their ability to reduce costs associated with healthcare administration for payors.

“HSP’s vision is to provide a suite of tools connected via a banking (ATM) transaction layer in a browser-based format to communicate (track and store) with disparate systems on a variety of Information Technology (IT) platforms. Our years of banking and brokerage transaction development have allowed us to bring a fresh look at old problems challenging the healthcare industry,” said John Buser, HSP’s President and Chief Executive Officer.

According to Dr. Don Maes, CareTech Solutions Vice President, Consulting Services, “CareTech Solutions helps their healthcare clients operate their IT departments more efficiently by reducing IT and administrative costs. HSP’s tools will enable CareTech Solutions to deliver more complete hospital and health plan business solutions.”

HSP’s transaction processor tool normalizes data from disparage systems and mediums (Internet, IVR, phone, fax, paper) and creates a unique transaction indexed to a member, provider and partner(s) for retrieval. The transaction processor includes user-defined workflows to route the transaction to the next step in the operation. Because the tools are browser-based, anyone within the LAN/WAN or on the Internet can pick up the administrative next step. Each step is logged as a transaction. While the transaction processor is performing these functions, it is receiving and transmitting transaction information with many third-party software solutions.
