ROSEVILLE, Calif. -- January 30, 2013

Intel-GE Care Innovations™ announced today the launch of a comprehensive
briefing center to help health plans understand remote care management and its
role in helping members increase their self-management of chronic conditions,
driving appropriate utilization of healthcare resources. As part of its
commitment to health plans and providers, Care Innovations™ has also upgraded
the functionality of the Intel-GE Care Innovations™ Guide, its remote care
management platform.

Care Innovations recently received Frost & Sullivan’s 2012 North American
Remote Patient Monitoring Competitive Strategy Leadership Award for its suite
of technology solutions, including the Care Innovations™ Guide. The Guide has
already penetrated 42 U.S. states with its remote care management
capabilities. Now, based on direct customer input, the solution has been
upgraded to enable:

  *Faster processing and better response time in clinician-patient
    interactions;
  *Enhanced video conferencing for smoother communications between clinicians
    and patients;
  *Quicker set-up process for home installations;
  *Faster decommissioning of patients when they are no longer in the remote
    care plan.

“The Care Innovations™ Guide is one of the best platforms for helping health
plans and providers seamlessly extend the care setting into the home,” said
Daniel Ruppar, analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “And perhaps more importantly,
Care Innovations has shown true vision and partnership in helping customers
through the process of changing their care models.”

Health plans are facing an immediate need to change business processes for the
massive influx of older, more chronically ill patients. One key solution is
remote care management, which is poised to facilitate a shift in care from
expensive acute settings to the home.

Care Innovations’ newly-launched Remote Care Briefing Center
(www.remotecarebriefingcenter.com) was designed to meet the needs of health
plans looking for information on how to accelerate this shift. Developed in
partnership with Healthcare Payer News, this online resource will help educate
payers through the design and implementation processes of remote care
management. In this center, health plans can learn:

  *How to reduce operating costs while delivering better care to the most
    expensive members;
  *Why patient engagement may be the key to improving star ratings – and how
    to achieve it;
  *How to assess the business value of remote monitoring in Medicare
    Advantage populations.

“Health plans are at the forefront of rethinking the cost/care/access
dilemma,” said James Pursley, vice president of sales and marketing at Care
Innovations. “Our job as a technology partner is to help them through that
process with continuous innovation and end-to-end professional services. With
our latest upgrades and the launch of the Remote Care Briefing Center, we’re
committed to delivering meaningful resources to help payers better understand
the business value that remote care management brings to their organizations
and members.”
