SHANGHAI -- February 4, 2013

Accenture (NYSE:ACN) has helped Shanghai East Hospital complete the
implementation of a Hospital Resource Planning (HRP) system designed to
optimize the hospital’s business processes and enhance its operating
efficiency.

Under the management consulting agreement, Accenture supported the
introduction of the system that covers a variety of business functions,
including logistics management, materials management, cost accounting and
budget management.Among the new capabilities, the system provides closed-loop
materials management and full-cost financial accounting, intended to help the
hospital achieve greater efficiency and lower costs.

“We are very pleased to work with Accenture and are more than satisfied with
the outcome of our long-term cooperation,” said Liu Zhongmin, director of
Shanghai East Hospital.“With nearly 40 years of global industry experience
and best practices, Accenture has played an important role in helping the
hospital put business innovation to its best use in order to improve service
quality through IT capacity building.”

Previously, Accenture helped the hospital design a roadmap for building its IT
infrastructure and introduced the hospital to the leading analysis and
assessment model established by the U.S. Healthcare Information and Management
Systems Society (HIMSS).

“Shanghai East Hospital is a top general hospital in China and a driver of
innovation within the global healthcare sector,” said Bo Wang, who leads
Accenture’s Health & Public Service business in Greater China.“We are honored
to be leveraging our deep industry knowledge and project management skills to
help Shanghai East Hospital achieve more efficient business operations as it
strives to build a leading, intelligent and digital hospital.”
