7/24/2007 8:15:59 AM

Marquette, Mich., July 23 /PRNewswire/ -- KliniTek, Inc., a provider of Web-based clinical information integration software and consulting services, today announced that it signed an agreement with Oracle Diagnostics to employ its UPCARE(R) eLAB software suite. UPCARE eLAB is a full function, easy-to-use and cost-effective Web-based outreach management solution for hospital and independent reference labs.

Oracle Diagnostics is a boutique-style medical lab providing an array of testing services for healthcare providers throughout southeast Florida. Oracle was recently selected by Entrepreneur magazine's HOT 500 Companies as one of the fastest growing businesses in the United States based on specific criterion. James Banner, president and chief executive officer of Oracle Diagnostics said, "Oracle Diagnostics emphasizes highly personalized service that is responsive, thorough and right on time. One of the reasons we chose KliniTek is that we saw the same philosophy with the way they treat their customers. UPCARE eLAB allows us to raise our already high levels of service to our customers via an advanced Web-based tool that increases their efficiency."

UPCARE eLAB contributes to enhanced reference lab productivity and increased lab utilization and revenue. UPCARE eLAB is a unique solution, since it protects existing lab system investments, is easy for users to learn, requires low support costs, and offers superior value. The solution can be delivered via in-house servers or as an ASP model. A single, integrated solution, UPCARE eLAB provides order entry and results reporting from a single user interface, and can seamlessly integrate with existing EMR systems, including KliniTek's UPCARE eMR.

UPCARE eLAB complements existing laboratory information systems rather than replacing them by adding efficient outreach functionality. The application provides secure Web-enabled order entry with medical necessity checking and ABN handling, and real-time order status and detailed results reporting. An intuitive user interface also provides users quick access to patient registration as well as packing lists and specimen label printing for accurate tracking. Reference labs can utilize extensive security options for full HIPAA compliance.

Jim Sundberg, president and chief executive officer of KliniTek said, "We are very pleased to have Oracle as one of our valued clients. As a growing and prominent diagnostic lab known for its quality and high levels of customer service, we are proud that Oracle selected us to meet their needs for lab outreach connectivity."

Banner added, "We believe our lab sets a gold standard. The UPCARE eLAB solution offers us the right blend of capabilities and value to support our goal of high quality and responsiveness to our customers."
