SOUTHAMPTON, PA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 1, 2006 --AdvanceNet Health Solutions (ANSHealth), Inc., an exclusive provider of state-of-the-art ePharmacy solutions today announced that the source code for ePostRx™, the healthcare industry's only enterprise pharmacy web solution will be made available under the OSI (Open Source Initiative) approved GNU General Public License (GPL).

ePostRx™ is a full featured pharmacy management system that automates the prescription-fulfillment process, from Order/Rx/OTC receipt and insurance adjudication, to DUR and dispensing for most business models, including Electronic Prescriptions, Retail, Chain Retail, Mail-Order Clinical and Central Fill. Developed using the Java programming language and standard web technologies, ePostRx™ can serve as a direct open source replacement for current proprietary pharmacy applications.

According to ANSHealth CEO John Strecker, "Open source applications, such as ePostRx™, free pharmacies of the monopoly lock-in of proprietary pharmacy software, allows customization to meet 100% of the pharmacy needs, allows support to be provided by your internal technical resources or the vendor of your choice, and eliminates the possibility that your pharmacy's software will be orphaned at the election of the software vendor."

The company will offer subscription-based services and support such as consulting, software customizations, training and certification for ePostRx through MyepostRx Network. Additionally, the company plans to continue development of innovative solutions and services that enable pharmacies to facilitate higher fulfillment volumes, enhance patient care and increase profitably.

Strecker went on to say, "ANSHealth is committed to providing open, non-proprietary interoperability solutions for our customers in order to improve patient care, reduce total cost of ownership and increase profit margins. ePostRx™ is a free, open source application that can be downloaded, installed and used without any software license or prescription transaction fees.
