Edgewater Launches Accountable Care Analytics Application on the Informatica
Platform

Partnership Delivers Integrated Analytics for Succeeding With Value-Based
Healthcare

WAKEFIELD, Mass., June 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Edgewater Technology, Inc.
(Nasdaq:EDGW), a leading consulting firm that brings a blend of classic and
product-based consulting services to its clients, has partnered with
Informatica Corporation to develop an integrated analytics and reporting
solution for Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and their participating
healthcare providers. The solution will help them drive performance and
leverage data as an enterprise asset for achieving value-based care.

The Edgewater Accountable Care Analytics solution is a comprehensive set of
data integration and business intelligence capabilities for clinical,
financial and care management professionals that empower healthcare
organizations to improve quality and reduce costs across a spectrum of care
delivery settings. The solution automates many of the labor-intensive aspects
of capturing and reporting on ACO performance and related risk-based
arrangements that exist today, while enabling healthcare providers to take a
data-driven approach to understanding the impact of quality, cost and outcomes
across the enterprise.

"The relentless pressures to improve quality and reduce costs are pushing
healthcare organizations of every size and shape to implement a
cross-enterprise platform for universal access and trustworthy data," said
Shirley Singleton, Edgewater's chairman, president and CEO. "Further, they
need these assets delivered via advanced analytics where they can make a
direct difference to end-users. We are very excited to be partnering with
Informatica and leveraging the Informatica Platform to facilitate the mapping
of data and deploying of analytics."

"As Healthcare transforms to a pay for value model, being able to capture
insights in data about what is working and what is not is a competitive
differentiator," says Richard Cramer, Informatica Chief Healthcare Strategist.
"Partnering with Edgewater to deliver this data driven ACO Analytics solution
is a natural way for us to help healthcare organizations achieve the potential
of their information."
