Axolotl Releases Revolutionary Elysium® Interoperability Hub at HIMSS '08

Company Extends Flagship Elysium® Technology to Seamlessly Connect EMRs and Enable Full Interoperability

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - February 26, 2008) - Axolotl Corp, the industry's leading provider of advanced web-based information management and exchange services, today announced the expansion of its established Elysium® product family to include the Elysium Interoperability Hub (iHub). All EMRs inter-communicate via the iHub -- physicians are free to select the EMR vendor of their choice. Patient data, referrals and requests for consultation are immediately delivered to providers or healthcare organizations. The iHub also distributes data from hospitals, labs, and radiology centers directly into ambulatory care EMRs.

"We are excited about this new introduction to our product family," said Ray Scott, Axolotl CEO. "Customers who have worked with us in testing this product are excited about the value it delivers to the physicians and patients in their communities." Scott further commented, "We have now reached the tipping point -- full interoperability is no longer an option, but rather an urgent and clear mandate."

The iHub stores configuration data for the mapping, routing and delivery rules for each physician practice. The iHub supports HL7 version 2.2 or greater, V3 CCD (R2/CCR), and NCPDP for drug information. A version of the iHub supporting national standards from HITSP, CCHIT and IHE is scheduled for release later this year.

Axolotl will demonstrate its Elysium technology at the Interoperability Showcase and the Axolotl booth (3451) at this year's HIMSS conference in Orlando, FL. Featured guest speakers at Axolotl's booth include Marc Holland of Health Industry Insights; Ted Kremer, Executive Director of Rochester RHIO; Trudi Matthews and Keith Hepp for HealthBridge; Dick Thompson, Executive Director of Quality Health Network; and Dr. Robert Keet, CMO Axolotl corp.
