<b>Ashland, Oregon Â February 25, 2003 Â </b>PLEXIS Healthcare Systems' Claims Manager software was recently ranked number one in an independent survey of Managed Care Information Systems (MCIS) conducted by the AC Group, Inc. of Houston, TX. The results of the comprehensive evaluation were released in a seven-page report produced by the Group. The report examines future trends in the payer industry and provides an in-depth capabilities survey to assist the health plan community in evaluating the claims processing software available in the marketplace.
Fifteen leading MCIS software vendors were asked to respond to 542 questions covering 30 different areas of functionality. To insure that vendors submitted accurate responses to the questions, they were informed that each of the 542 questions would be included in specific contracts that were out to bid during 2002. Questions were assigned a relative value unit (RVU) which was based on perceived value to a health plan organization. Additionally, a point value was assigned to the type of answer given to each of the 542 questions.
According to the findings of this survey for health plans up to 350,000 lives, the top functionality score (97 percent) went to PLEXIS Health Systems' Claims Manager 5.0 software. The report states, "One of the up and coming MCIS vendors is PLEXIS Healthcare Systems, based in Ashland, OR. Their new version 5.0 is a fully integrated product suite that uses Windows 95/98/NT/2000 and SQL Server technology. PLEXIS provides powerful software solutions that deliver critical information to payers and healthcare providers."
Jorge Yant, President and CEO of PLEXIS Healthcare Systems, said, "We were very pleased to receive this number one rating by a respected independent organization. We have worked long and hard on our software and we are happy for the recognition. It is also gratifying when you are compared to the top 15 products in the marketplace, and come out number one. We have always know that we have an excellent product, but when you go head to head with your major competitors, and receive a top rating, that's the kind of validation that really counts."
