    ClinicalKey to provide electronic clinical reference for HHC's Medical
                                  Libraries

Elsevier , a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical
information products and services, today announced that New York City Health
and Hospitals Corporation (HHC) has selected ClinicalKey to provide electronic
medical reference and knowledge-based information to HHC's clinicians across
multiple facilities.

Launched in April 2012, ClinicalKey provides the most current and clinically
relevant evidence-based answers, as well as expert commentary, MEDLINE
abstracts and select third-party journals. ClinicalKey offers a user-friendly
interface and a journal reference package that includes many of HHC's priority
journals.

As the largest municipal healthcare organization in the country, HHC serves
1.4 million New Yorkers every year. It provides medical, mental health and
substance abuse services through its 11 acute care hospitals, four skilled
nursing facilities, six large diagnostic and treatment centers and more than
70 community based clinics.

ClinicalKey's reference search engine is powered by Elsevier's Smart Content,
tagged with EMMeT (Elsevier Merged Medical Taxonomy), which enables
ClinicalKey to understand clinical terms and thus discover medical content
that is the most relevant, plus find related content that would be missed by
other search engines. ClinicalKey demonstrates the ability to quickly move
from topic overview to in-depth specialty information in order to meet
everyday clinical challenges.

"HHC's medical library has a vast array of clinical reference needs, and we're
proud to be one of the services made available to its many clinicians," said
Jay Katzen, President, Clinical Solutions, Elsevier. "Our content is
comprehensive, trusted and quick, and this will allow HHC librarians and
healthcare professionals to find the most accurate response to help advance
their research needs and, ultimately, improve patient care."
