LOWELL, Mass. -- May 21, 2014

Alere Analytics, an Alere subsidiary specializing in analytics and clinical
decision support (CDS) technology, today announced that VP of Clinical
Operations, Dr. Muhammad Zahid will participate in an industry panel that
highlights the importance of population health management in the current
healthcare landscape at the 2014 eHealth Initiative National Forum on Data &
Analytics. The conference, which is being held at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in
Washington D.C. on May 20-21, will address how analytics can be leveraged to
more efficiently manage clinical, financial and administrative decisions.
During the conference, Alere Analytics will be showcasing the Company’s suite
of provider and payer solutions at booth #7.

In Dr. Zahid’s panel discussion, he will address key challenges and
opportunities of data use, integration, and quality improvement when utilizing
clinical decision support to effectively manage populations. This is
especially relevant in today’s healthcare practice, which is transitioning to
a value-based system where reimbursement depends on meeting federal quality
standards, and patient satisfaction continues to increase in importance. For
risk-bearing organizations such as Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), the
ability to segment patient populations and identify high-risk groups is
essential for managing costs and maintaining the highest quality of care.
