Compuware Covisint Introduces AppCloud(TM), Bringing Together Best-of-breed Web-based Solutions to Healthcare

AppCloud Accelerates Physician Adoption of Health IT by Leveraging Cloud-based Solutions

DETROIT and LaQUINTA, Calif., Nov. 10, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR) today announced that its Covisint subsidiary launched AppCloud, a secure application marketplace that allows healthcare technology providers to offer their solutions to Covisint communities. Covisint made the announcement today at the Healthcare IT Summit in LaQuinta, Calif., where it is presenting to industry analysts and IT executives on both the challenges and opportunities associated with cloud computing.

Covisint’s AppCloud brings together best-of-breed applications — including ePrescribing, labs, radiology reports, eConsults and others — in a multi-vendor approach. AppCloud enables users to gain single-sign-on access to applications and healthcare organizations in a familiar, secure and unified experience. AppCloud also helps Covisint customers position themselves to achieve “meaningful use” of technologies through a modular and incremental approach to adopting health information technology (HIT).

“Healthcare faces a very specific task of driving technology adoption into the care continuum — a task that has traditionally proven challenging,” said Brett Furst, Covisint Healthcare Vice President. “The only way to achieve this pervasiveness is by securely delivering solutions via the web. With AppCloud, Covisint is uniquely positioned to bring best-of-breed solutions to healthcare communities nationwide.”

Covisint’s on-demand collaboration platform and cloud computing approach helps virtual communities securely access, use and share time-sensitive information. Covisint solves business problems by streamlining and automating processes globally — connecting state and nationally based communities, organizations and systems in the healthcare, automotive and financial services industries, as well as the public sector.
