LOWELL, Mass. -- September 30, 2013

Alere Analytics, an Alere subsidiary specializing in analytics and clinical
decision support (CDS) technology, today announced that Chief Medical Officer
and Co-founder, Dr. Fauzia Khan will participate on an industry panel that
spotlights how connectivity technologies play a crucial rule in engaging
patients and providers at the 2013 NEHI Innovation Conference. The NEHI
Innovation Conference, which is being held at the Seaport Hotel in Boston, MA
on October 3rd, will highlight how senior healthcare leaders and policymakers
are addressing the challenges and opportunities of engaging patients in their
own care.

In Dr. Khan’s panel discussion, she will demonstrate how real-time,
evidence-based decision support, analytics and now mobile patient devices can
more effectively engage patients, enabling personalized and immediate care
recommendations, triggering earlier interventions, and improving overall
clinical outcomes. By providing patient data management across the continuum
of care, including real-time patient surveillance in the hospital/ICU and post
discharge in the home with point-of-care devices, providers would be able to
better manage patient information and identify care gaps in today's fragmented
healthcare environment.

Panel Synopsis: New patient engagement technologies are enabling remote
patient monitoring, medication optimization, and better care coordination.
These new innovations are increasingly available to assist providers and
patients at all points in the care process. However, there is still a need to
better understand how cutting-edge technologies are being evaluated and
implemented for engaging patients and providers alike in health care
decision-making, as well as successfully reducing costs and improving care.

Fauzia Khan, you can read her article, “Addressing the Empty Seat at the
