QuadraMed wins decision support contract From NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital (NYP)

RESTON, Va., Sept. 14, 2006--QuadraMed(R) Corporation (Amex:QD) today announced that NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital (NYP), New York, NY, has awarded the company a contract to implement the QuadraMed Clinical Outcome Practice Evaluator (COPE) on three of its campuses. QuadraMed COPE is a Core Measures Reporting and decision support solution.

Core Measures are data that hospitals collect about acute myocardial infarction, heart failure, pregnancy and related conditions, pneumonia, and surgical infection prevention. These data must then be submitted to JCAHO (Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations) and CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) to prove provider organizations meet the requirements of the National Hospital Quality Measures initiative.

QuadraMed COPE enables the accurate and timely submission of Core Measures data. It also combines software and professional services that will provide NYP management with an improved decision support solution. Using the advanced data collection methodology and in-depth reporting capabilities of QuadraMed COPE, NYP will be able to gain greater insight to the core quality performance of its individual facilities, as well as an aggregate for the enterprise. These management tools are designed to provide the decision support that can help to further enhance a hospital's quality of care.

"NewYork-Presbyterian has long been recognized for its consistently high quality patient care," said NYP Vice President and Chief Quality Officer, Dr. Mary R. Cooper. "To raise our standards even higher, we need the ability to accurately measure our performance. COPE technology is one of the tools we are using to gather data about the quality of care we provide. Such information is critical for improving patient safety and outcomes."

NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, a 2,268-bed multi-facility institution serving the New York metropolitan area, is nationally acclaimed for providing the highest quality patient care. It is one of only 14 hospitals named to the "Honor Roll" of the prestigious 2006 U.S. News & World Report guide to "America's Best Hospitals".

QuadraMed has over 20 years of experience processing hospital patient-level data for regulatory reporting and employs a COPE decision support team of industry experts in the areas of data quality, statistics, and healthcare financial and clinical information. The COPE solution works in conjunction with QuadraMed's Care-Based Revenue Cycle(TM) process to play an important role in the company's strategic initiatives to leverage quality care into reimbursement, interoperability for the connected healthcare community, and quality measurement.
