Axolotl Receives the 2006 Frost & Sullivan Award for Market Leadership in Healthcare

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 26, 2006 -- The annual Frost & Sullivan Market Leadership Award was awarded to Axolotl Corp. Axolotl, the leading software provider for connecting disparate healthcare entities across the continuum of care, was chosen after an extensive analyst review of competitors in the industry.

"Axolotl has displayed excellence in identification of market challenges, drivers, and restraints, as well as strategy development and methods of addressing these market dynamics," stated Steve Tobin, an analyst at Frost and Sullivan. "Furthermore, Axolotl has continually demonstrated solutions for monitoring market changes and for implementing superior market strategies. By utilizing these strategies for success, Axolotl has established itself as the market share leader in its respective industry.

To choose the recipient of this Award, analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research.

Steve Tobin shared, "Axolotl has a clear trend of proven success in the regional health information environment. With approximately twelve fully functional regional health information exchanges at present, Axolotl has captured significant market share. Their technology for connecting communities is deployed in several leading RHIOs, including The Greater Cincinnati Healthbridge, Santa Cruz County, and Western Colorado's Quality Health Network (QHN). Axolotl's solutions consistently prove to be reliable and have extended value to the user through financial returns. Healthbridge connects seventeen hospitals, reference labs, and public health organizations and saves millions each year for the various stakeholders. Santa Cruz has been widely known as a tremendous success with strong physician practice, public health, and provider adoption and continues to see improved quality and productivity outcomes. Quality Health Network has implemented electronic medical records, prescription writing, disease registries, and other technologies provided by Axolotl."

"Axolotl's chronic disease registry is at the center of the growing need to implement strong care management programs," continued Tobin. "Their Elysium Disease Registry application queries discrete variables to identify and deliver results that track areas such as chronic care, diabetes, and infectious disease. Monitoring trend analysis, this program is at the forefront of next generation healthcare. With these and other technologies, Axolotl remains a leader in capturing the opportunity to provide technologies for information exchange, leading the nation to a more connected method for the delivery of healthcare."
