and Payers: Covisint Healthcare

Cloud-Based Solution Offers Rapid Path to Successful Accountable Care and HIE
Initiatives; Simplifies Communication and Reporting Across the Care Continuum

DETROIT, Feb. 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Covisint, a Compuware (Nasdaq:CPWR)
company, today announced the launch of its fully integrated healthcare
solution: Covisint Healthcare. Already a leading provider of accountable care,
HIE and collaboration technologies, Covisint Healthcare now enables providers
and payers to deliver better care and achieve increased revenues in today's
outcomes-focused environment.

"As healthcare reform drives the shift from fee-for-service to outcomes-based
reimbursement, providers and payers need to effectively manage financial risk
for defined populations, better coordinate care across the care continuum and
drive measured outcomes at the point-of-care," said John Stanley, Principal of
Impact Advisors.

Covisint Healthcare performs advanced analytics across multiple systems and
stakeholders to reduce costs and earn incentives--a core tenet of accountable
care initiatives. Covisint's cloud engagement platform meets customers where
they are, from paper-based to mobile and cloud systems. The solution reduces
unnecessary readmissions, procedure redundancies and emergency room visits by
streamlining administrative and clinical information and delivering actionable
insights to the point-of-care.

Key Covisint Healthcare benefits include the:

  *highlighting of strong and weak performers--by pulling information across
    internal and external systems and reports;
  *enhancement of existing EMRs, EHRs, care management and HIEs--simplifying
    participation in government programs, saving time, coordinating care and
    increasing revenues by expanding reporting and simplifying shared plans
    with decision support and guidelines;
  *delivery of real-time team notifications--for ER admission and discharges;
  *capturing, tracking and reporting--on core measure sets for ACO, PCMH,
    Meaningful Use and PQRS or commercial payer pay-for-performance and other
    value-based models;
  *improvement of patient outreach and scheduling--by generating reports
    identifying those in need of care or for those falling through the cracks
    in today's fragmented healthcare system; and
  *simplicity, scalability and performance of Covisint's cloud engagement
    platform--which has been deployed by more than 3,000 global customers to
    allow 18 million users to access mission-critical applications and
    information.

"Delivering healthcare today demands a fresh perspective to allow
organizations to compete effectively now as well as help to transform their
business down the road," said Steve McDonald, Covisint Vice President of
Healthcare. "The future is in sight, and Covisint Healthcare delivers on this
demand. It's exciting and rewarding to see healthcare organizations respond
creatively and aggressively by reaching out to community providers and
establishing non-traditional partnerships in the care delivery model."

Covisint Healthcare meets healthcare organizations where they are in their
technology adoption, enabling them to mature into a fully functioning,
clinically integrated community with multi-system integrations and advanced
analytics. Covisint delivers high value to accountable care stakeholders by
supporting a comprehensive health information technology roadmap that fills
the gaps left by existing technology investments. Covisint's agnostic platform
enables the free, secure flow of information with the customer in full
control, helping healthcare providers avoid being reliant upon one vendor,
payer or HIE. Covisint healthcare works with or without an existing EMR
system.

The new Covisint Healthcare platform will be demonstrated at HIMSS 2013 in New
Orleans.
