Business Wire

SUSSEX, Wis. -- March 17, 2014

QuadMed, a nationally recognized provider of onsite, near site and shared site
employer-sponsored health and wellness solutions, has entered into a strategic
partnership with Stat Health Services, provider of Stat Doctors™ eHealth
solution, to provide 24/7 telemedicine access for patients with minor acute
healthcare needs. Under the agreement, QuadMed purchased a minority ownership
interest in the company.

QuadMed’s partnership with Stat Health Services, a pioneer in virtual house
call services, provides employers with an additional healthcare solution
proven to dramatically reduce the cost of claims and create positive health
outcomes. Through Stat Doctors, minor acute care needs are handled online by
on-call emergency medicine providers. Patients receive personal treatment from
the convenience of their computer or mobile device without needing to travel
to a hospital emergency room or an urgent care center, avoiding waiting times
and substantial expenses.

“QuadMed continues to lead the evolution of healthcare at this transformative
time in the healthcare industry,” said Joel Quadracci, Chairman, President &
CEO of Quad/Graphics, QuadMed’s parent company. “Stat Doctors is an innovative
approach to acute healthcare delivery that complements QuadMed’s continuum of
healthcare solutions focused on improving the quality of patient care and
outcomes while reducing overall costs. This investment expands healthcare
management solutions for employers who, like us, want to keep employees and
their dependents healthy and productive.”

The QuadMed/Stat Health Services partnership signifies a pivotal shift in
healthcare delivery, according to Dr. Alan Roga, M.D., Founder and Chief
Executive Officer of Stat Health Services. “Stat Doctors is helping QuadMed
replicate the traditional doctor-patient experience anytime, anywhere,” he
said. “We are very excited to collaborate with QuadMed, which shares our
vision for improving access to quality care in a convenient and cost-effective
manner.”

Stat Doctors offers patients a network of the nation’s top emergency medicine
specialists through its partnership with Emergency Medicine Physicians (EMP),
a network of highly qualified emergency medical providers dedicated to
delivering exceptional care. “We are excited to partner with QuadMed through
Stat Doctors in the transformation of healthcare by providing highest quality
care in a convenient, low-cost alternative to the current options,”said
Dominic Bagnoli, M.D., Chief Executive Officer of EMP.

“As a pioneer in the use of telemedicine through our Corporate Health Suites
solution, we have discovered that it’s not just the technology that’s
important, but also the physician network,” said Tim Dickman, President of
QuadMed. “The doctor-patient relationship is key to providing effective care
and positive outcomes. Stat Doctors facilitates this important relationship
using state-of-the-art telemedicine.”
