Mitchell International Announces Commercial Deployment of DecisionPoint® 7.0

Latest Version of Market-Leading Medical Bill Review and Workflow Solution Further Empowers Adjuster Speed, Effectiveness and Consistency

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - May 3, 2011) - Mitchell International, Inc., a leading provider of technology, connectivity and information solutions to the Property & Casualty claims and Collision Repair industries, today announced the commercial deployment of DecisionPoint® 7.0. Released to existing DecisionPoint customers in December, 2010, DecisionPoint® 7.0 is the market-leading medical bill review and workflow solution for 1st and 3rd party liability claims handlers.

This latest DecisionPoint version empowers full "my claims my way" claims handling with more than a dozen advanced, highly flexible and configurable feature and functional components. DecisionPoint 7.0 also introduces a completely redesigned user interface that simplifies and accelerates medical bill claim handling. The DecisionPoint 7.0 suite is redesigned on Microsoft® .Net architecture providing the benefits of an advanced technology platform as well as speed and flexibility for future development and deployment.

"DecisionPoint 7.0 embodies a series of new features that we developed based upon feedback from our client community," said John Gilmartin, VP of Product Management and Operations, Mitchell International. "Our overall goal was to 'make the best better' with the advanced capabilities of leading-edge, flexible GUI architecture all designed to accelerate the bill review process while enabling our clients to deliver even higher levels of accurate, prompt and effective service."

DecisionPoint 7.0 raises the bar on adjuster efficiency and effectiveness by providing users with powerful capabilities to access, view and work with multiple bills, claimants and related parties information without the need to navigate away from their core workspace. A key new feature of DecisionPoint 7.0 is My Workspace, a series of highly flexible features -- configurable at the individual user's screen level -- that empowers highly efficient record access, update and task execution. Extensive use of new context sensitive icons, expanded menu functionality and field colorations further enable fast, effective and consistent medical claims handling while simplifying the entire process for users.

"DecisionPoint 7.0 underscores our commitment to enhance the productivity, connectivity and service delivery of our clients and their medical management partners while assisting prompt, accurate and consistent claims handling for the benefit of the injured party," said Dave Torrence, Senior VP and General Manager. "The nicest thing a client can say about one of our offerings is 'we love it' and we hear that a lot when a client first experiences 7.0."
