Genesis Physicians Group Accelerates Healthcare Information Access

Physician Association Takes Leadership Role in Providing “Backbone” for Sharing Regional Health Information

DETROIT, July 29, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR) today announced that its Covisint subsidiary will provide technology to Dallas-based physician organization Genesis Physicians Group. Together, Covisint and Genesis Physicians Group will improve healthcare information access, delivery, security and efficiency by leveraging Covisint’s cloud-based healthcare platform.

“We seek the best IT solutions for our independent physician association (IPA) members, providing them with rapid, secure information access supporting many of the clinical and administrative interfaces and functions that physicians use daily,” said Ron Lutz, President and CEO of Genesis Physicians Group. “Covisint clearly understands healthcare information access, particularly the security component needed to ensure the safe access to information and applications from any web browser.”

Covisint will provide the North Texas-based physicians’ organization a branded, on-demand collaboration solution that offers a centralized view and single-sign-on access to the key applications and information that Genesis physicians need to be more effective in providing patient care, such as referral management, ePrescribing, electronic medical records (EMRs) and other clinical and administrative information. The Covisint solution is a cost-effective way for Genesis to continue to usher its physicians into the new world of healthcare delivery through secure, collaborative and easy-to-use technology.

“Improved, more efficient care is only possible through the adoption of healthcare technology,” said Brett Furst, Covisint Vice President of Healthcare, adding: “Covisint directly addresses IT adoption challenges for physician associations like Genesis with technology that ‘connects the docs’ in an easy-to-use, secure and efficient way.”

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.
