Company to Provide Innovative Nursing Home Care to Over 8,000 Medicaid Recipients to Improve Care and Reduce Illinois Medicaid Costs

SHELTON, CT -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 14, 2007 -- HC Innovations, Inc. (OTCBB: HCNV) today announced it has entered into a three-year contract to provide care management to over 8,000 Medicaid recipients living in nursing homes in the State of Illinois. HC Innovations will provide this care management through Enhanced Care Initiatives, Inc. (ECI), its wholly-owned subsidiary.

"We believe the program with the State of Illinois through the state's Your Healthcare Plus disease management program is truly innovative," said HC Innovations Chairman & CEO David Chess, MD. "It is the first time that a state Medicaid department has implemented a specific care management program for their nursing home enrollees. This is an amazing opportunity to improve care and the quality of life for these residents while reducing costs for the State of Illinois."

HC Innovations will provide services through Your Healthcare Plus, a comprehensive disease management program that helps Illinois Medicaid beneficiaries manage chronic illnesses such as asthma, coronary artery disease, heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes and other chronic conditions. HC Innovations anticipates that revenue from this contract will be recognized in its current quarter.

Services include providing programs and systems for assisting physicians in the management of patients who are frail or who face medically complex conditions or mental impairment.
