Strategic Partner of National Physician Networks to Market SpringCharts as Electronic Health Record (EHR) of Choice

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - December 4, 2007) - Spring Medical Systems, a leading provider of software solutions for small- and medium-sized medical practices, today announced an exclusive partnership with Provider Services of America, Inc. (PSA), a healthcare company that serves as a resource and strategic partner of independent physician associations (IPAs) and other physician networks nationally, to offer SpringCharts® as its Electronic Health Record (EHR) solution of choice.

IPA's are increasingly serving a critical role in advising member physician practices on best-of-breed technology solutions and services. Through partnering with PSA, Spring Medical Systems assures itself critical penetration of this influential market. PSA works exclusively with, and at the direction of, IPA leadership to ensure that all product offerings are introduced and implemented according to the wishes of the IPA/Network leadership.

"Finding the right Electronic Health Record partner has a significant impact on the overall health of the physician networks we serve," said James A. Skognes, President and CEO of PSA. "When looking for an exclusive value-added EHR solution to recommend, we chose carefully in SpringCharts -- a fully-functioning and intuitive product that targets the small- and medium-sized medical practice, at a price point they can afford."

More than just a charting program, SpringCharts is built to work the way a practice works, simplifying typical office tasks while increasing efficiency so that physicians can focus on what they do best -- providing quality patient care. Features include, but are not limited to, interoffice messaging as well as remote access and drug interaction and allergy checking.

"Just like large medical organizations, small- and medium-sized practices need the ability to make a relatively seamless transition to Electronic Health Records," said Jack Smyth, CEO of Spring Medical Systems. "Spring Medical Systems appreciates the strategic role that IPA's are playing in this process and recognizes PSA as a key partner in meeting the EHR needs of the independent physician's office. This exclusive alliance between our two companies will further help drive critical market adoption of SpringCharts as a defacto industry standard."
