LifeSpan Pharmacy Goes Into Production With Open Source Pharmacy Fulfillment Solution ePostRx™

SOUTHAMPTON, PA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 19, 2006 --AdvanceNet Health Solutions (ANSHealth) announced today that LifeSpan Pharmacy Inc. has successfully began dispensing prescriptions with ePostRx™ as its primary pharmacy fulfillment solution. ePostRx™, the healthcare industry's only enterprise pharmacy web solution, is licensed under the OSI (Open Source Initiative) approved GNU General Public License (GPL). Additionally, ANSHealth offers commercial services for ePostRx™ such as consulting, software customizations, training, support and certification.

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 LifeSpan COO Ari Oberman, "We did extensive due diligence and after looking at alternatives we knew that ePostRx™ was the best solution for our unique business model. Being open source, ePostRx™ will allow us to fully customize the software to meet our business needs freeing us of the normal vendor lock associated with a proprietary solution. Furthermore, as a web application, ePostRx™ provides LifeSpan Pharmacy with an enterprise solution that reduces our normal Total Cost of Ownership (TOC)."

ANSHealth President John Strecker is very pleased that LifeSpan Pharmacy has selected ePostRx™ as its open source pharmacy solution. "This proves that the open source model is very much applicable to the healthcare industry. We believe ePostRx™ offers pharmacy owners a cost effective alternative to that of proprietary software and provides inherit flexibility for business growth. We look forward to a very long and rewarding business relationship with LifeSpan Pharmacy."

LifeSpan Pharmacy is the third ePostRx™ client to go into production for ANSHealth in the past six months. With a growing list of clients, ANSHealth is looking forward towards a successful 2007 as Healthcare IT executives begin to accept the open source model as an alternative to proprietary pharmacy systems.
