The MedWell Group Announces General Availability of FreedomSuite, the Physician's Safe Path to a Mobile Practice

Wireless Patient Chart(TM) Integrated With EMR, Practice Management With 24 X 7 X 365 Technical Support and Highest Levels of Security

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., Feb. 17, 2003 -- The MedWell Group, Inc. today announced general availability of FreedomSuite(TM), a proven mobile practice solution for doctors that fully integrates a Wireless Patient Chart with EMR (electronic medical records) and practice management. FreedomSuite saves doctors time and money by eliminating paper and redundant processes, offering rapid return on investment while providing a safe transition path to the mobile practice.

FreedomSuite's Wireless Patient Chart permits instant access to patient records while doctors move between exam rooms, satellite offices, the hospital and other clinical settings. This minimizes redundant data entry and supports complete charge capture, for faster claims processing and increased reimbursements.

"FreedomSuite was designed with and for doctors to meet the growing need for a fully supported transition path to the mobile practice," said James R. Coburn, MedWell's Chief Executive Officer. "Our research shows doctors value training and 24 X 7 X 365 technical support as key to this transition, and to establishing the foundation for trusted health care partnerships with their patients."

"The benefits of FreedomSuite go well beyond increased reimbursement and lower overhead. I've got my life back," said Jodi Chambers, M.D., a surgeon who uses FreedomSuite with three other doctors to streamline their group practice. "I doubt that any doctor will be using paper records five years from now," Dr. Chambers said.

The MedWell Group, which recently celebrated its fifth anniversary, maintains its competitive edge through continuous dialogue with some 350 Physician Advisors from coast to coast. Advisor input led MedWell to clarify a safe, supported transition path to a mobile practice that also facilitates compliance with the new rules and regulations introduced by HIPAA. "FreedomSuite was built to help doctors streamline processes while ensuring the highest levels of security for patient and business-critical data," Coburn said.
