Axolotl Announces Elysium Exchange for Hospitals

Axolotl's Hospital Customers and Community Physicians Benefit From Rapid Deployment of Interoperability

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - February 27, 2008) - Axolotl Corp. today announced the proven success of Elysium Exchange for Hospitals -- a solution that offers immediate interoperability for all types of legacy systems and physician EMRs. Elysium Exchange for Hospitals allows facilities to easily and quickly connect to admitting and referring physicians, providing patient reports and clinical documents as soon as they are available.

While Axolotl has always offered connectivity solutions for hospitals, the Elysium Exchange for Hospitals is a new combination of its EdgeServer, EMR Lite and iHub products, coupled with comprehensive deployment services, specifically designed to leverage the investment in existing hospital systems. Hospitals do not need to develop point-to-point interfaces to connect with the ever increasing number of EMRs -- Elysium Exchange provides a single pipe. With Elysium Exchange for Hospitals, hospital systems increase productivity and efficiency while securing physician loyalty. If physicians do not already have an EMR system, they can easily connect and manage clinical documents with the Elysium EMR Lite solution. The transition from delivery of paper documents to pushing them electronically is seamless -- no interruption of workflows or changing current systems.

"Our physicians like to refer patients to our hospital because they know that they will get results back as soon as the tests are completed," said Todd Martin, Manager, Franciscan Health Systems in Tacoma. "Physicians have confidence that the data will be presented within a few moments of completion, saving non-productive telephone calls and follow up for both the physicians and the lab and radiology departments," shared Dick Thompson, Executive Director for QHN, a coalition of healthcare groups in Colorado.

"Hospitals, physicians and communities have been successfully utilizing Axolotl's Elysium products for years. By introducing Elysium Exchange for Hospitals, we have made this proven technology available in a configuration, deployment and pricing model that is tailored to meet the business and technical requirements of hospital systems," said Sam Godwin, VP of National Accounts.

"This new packaging of Elysium Exchange for Hospitals is in response to the market demand for full interoperability," shared Ray Scott, CEO of Axolotl. "As physicians adopt ambulatory EMRs, so the demand for electronic delivery grows. Hospital systems seeking a cost effective solution for full interoperability are excited by Elysium Exchange for Hospitals."
