Remedy Interactive Forms First Technology Advisory Council of Injury Prevention and Workers' Compensation Loss Control Experts

Council Uncovers New Workplace Injury Insights and Reduction Strategies

SAUSALITO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 15, 2007 -- Remedy Interactive, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise solutions that help Global 1000 companies reduce their workers' compensation costs, today announced the industry's first Technology Advisory Council focused on injury prevention and workers' compensation loss control. This prestigious group of leaders from the employee health and safety, risk management, workers' compensation and ergonomics segments will discuss global strategies for reducing workplace injury rates and costs industry-wide during quarterly meetings. In addition, the Council will advise Remedy Interactive on the development and best practices of its OES technology.

Remedy Interactive's Technology Advisory Council includes:

--  Tom Ferguson, Vice President, AIG Consultants, Inc.
--  George Alvisio, Director, Alvarez & Marsal
--  John Ingram, Vice President, ESIS, Inc.
--  Jillian Guerra, Director of Business Risk Management, Health Net
--  John Gargiulo, Global Program Manager for Ergonomics and Industrial
    Hygiene, Hewlett Packard
--  David Snodgrass, Senior Loss Control Manager, Safety National Casualty
--  Stephen M. Bennett, Director Safety and Workforce Management, Sedgwick
--  Sarah Warch, Director of Employee Safety & Well Being, UnitedHealth
--  Kevin Costello, President, U.S. Ergonomics

Remedy Interactive believes the findings from the Technology Advisory Council meetings will provide valuable insights for customers, partners and other companies focused on workers' compensation cost reduction and risk management. For example, during the recent inaugural meeting, Webility Corporation President Jennifer Christian, MD, MPH presented the Council with new ideas for planning ahead to deliver "first class service" to injured employees and for decreasing work disability. During its discussion, the Council agreed that decentralization can make return-to-work programs challenging for employers to implement. The group also concluded that it is clearly in employers' best interests (and less so for vendors, partners or doctors) to devote resources to activities that reduce lost work days due to injuries incurred on the job.

"Companies can save millions of dollars each year in workers' compensation costs if they take a proactive approach to preventing workplace injuries. However, most companies focus on solutions after injuries take place," said Kim Lopez, CEO of Remedy Interactive. "Remedy Interactive's Technology Advisory Council aims to address the challenges and opportunities for reducing workplace injuries and workers' compensation costs worldwide, and educate the industry on the strategies and recommendations emanating from our internal discussions."
