100 Healthcare organizations now benefit from Halogen Employee Performance Management suite

Halogen Sales Grow 100 Percent as Healthcare Organizations Experience the Immediate Benefits of Halogen eAppraisal Healthcare

OTTAWA, Sept. 19, 2006 - Halogen Software Inc., the leading provider of Web-based employee performance management (EPM) software announced today that 100 healthcare organizations now benefit from Halogen eAppraisal Healthcare(TM),. The rapidly rising number of healthcare organizations using the solution is reflected in Halogen's healthcare sales, which have grown 100 percent year over year. Raritan Bay Medical Center, Woman's Hospital and Carondelet Health are among the many healthcare providers that have selected Halogen over other EPM solutions to replace paper-based systems, simplify the employee appraisal process and streamline the accreditation process.

Halogen provides multiple benefits to its healthcare clients including an automated step-by-step reminder system that ensures appraisal processes are kept on schedule without piles of paper to manage. In addition, the centralized report center provides valuable data and produces board governance and competency reports to help prepare for Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO)(R) and other state accreditation surveys. Comprehensive reports allow organizations to quickly identify and reward top performers and define and track ongoing development. In the end, healthcare organizations are rewarded with cost savings and are able to realize ROI very quickly.

"In the past, our paper-based performance reviews were often more than 20-pages long. The process was a nightmare," said Jodi-Ann Mullaney, manager of compensation and special projects for Raritan Bay Medical Center, voted best hospital in Central New Jersey in 2001. "We needed a faster more efficient system and Halogen gave us just that."

In addition to enabling healthcare organizations to complete appraisals faster and easier, eAppraisal maximizes the information organizations can pull from their appraisals. Halogen's report center provides the ability to track the progress of all appraisals and provides an at-a-glance summary of key statistics. Organizations can then drill down into reports for more detail, including comprehensive score reports, development-planning reports and on-time completion reports.

"Our paper-based system didn't give the CEO the ability to data mine, to drill down into reports in order to identify top performers or other vital information," said Paul Sokoloff, director of performance consulting for Carondelet Health, a not-for-profit Catholic sponsored healthcare system in Kansas City, Missouri. "We now have the capacity to do that and to run reports that show us possible disconnects between patient satisfaction etc and the scores achieved in the appraisal process. This enables us to properly allocate resources where they are most needed and leads to better strategic alignment."

Halogen's report center provides valuable data and produces board governance and competency reports to help healthcare organizations prepare for JCAHO(R) and other state accreditation surveys. These comprehensive reports also enable organizations to quickly identify and reward top performers and define and track ongoing development.

"We certainly see eAppraisal making it easier for us to meet accreditation requirements," said Khipi Parker, credentialing coordinator for Woman's Hospital, one of the first women's specialty hospitals in the nation. "We have everything the surveyors need at our finger tips. We are impressed with the way Halogen has addressed all our needs as a healthcare organization."
