Business Wire

FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- August 5, 2013

EXTENSION, Inc. today announced that it has developed a strategic relationship
with Siemens Healthcare, Malvern, PA. Siemens Healthcare is a leading provider
of enterprise electronic health record (EHR) solutions with embedded workflow
technology that brings the benefits of business process management into the
healthcare environment. One of the most advanced EHR-extender (EHR-e)
solutions on the market today, EXTENSION delivers important event data and
notifications to healthcare professionals on a mobile handset, enabling
recipients to more quickly act upon the information. Siemens will now offer
EXTENSION’s solutions in addition to Siemens’ professional services support as
a value-added complement to an enterprise EHR.

“As the EHR market grows, hospitals are seeking key differentiators among
vendors and one way to do that is to extend the EHR to all of the prevalent
communication devices in use by clinicians today. By deploying EXTENSION’s
EHR-e technology, Siemens willenable customers to extend the value of their
EHR byempowering them to receive alerts, notifications, and secure messages
on their mobile devices. The communications are tightly integrated into the
hospital’s existing Siemens messaging service bus.We’re excited about
starting this significant relationship with Siemens Healthcare,” said Todd
Plesko, CEO at EXTENSION.

When EXTENSION’s alerting and messaging software is used in conjunction with
Siemens Soarian and legacy EHR products, hospitals will have an opportunity to
explore unit, hospital, and network-specific workflow customization for mobile
devices. The results are an improved care delivery model with the potential
for improved patient experiences, and increases in staff efficiency and
productivity.

Siemens chose to align with EXTENSION in part because of the company’s unique
ability to capture HL7 data from an EHR, and link the data with clinical
events that generate context-aware alerts, while managing prioritization,
escalation, and tracking. By leveraging EXTENSION, Siemens is now able to
offer end-state closed-loop communication of alerting and messaging to mobile
devices within the healthcare enterprise.

“This combined approach with EXTENSION enables Siemens Healthcare to securely
‘mobilize’ the functionality of one of our key differentiators, our workflow
engine, in a manner that helps customers improve the way they receive this
information,” said David Hamilton, Sr. Vice President, Enterprise Services,
Siemens Healthcare. “With this pairing, we envision more opportunities to help
customers connect providers and patients to better coordinate care.”
