Physician Hospital Organization Adopts Cielo Clinic(TM) for Patient-Centered Medical Home

IPIP (Improving Performance in Practice) Program Is Key Motivation Behind Mercy~Physician Community PHO's Selection of Cielo Clinic(TM) Software-as-a-Service

ANN ARBOR, MI -- (Marketwire) -- 04/07/09 -- Cielo MedSolutions LLC, a provider of healthcare software and web applications, continued strong new-customer momentum with the announcement today that Mercy~Physician Community PHO has licensed the company's Cielo Clinic(TM) software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering.

The Cielo Clinic product is designed to improve efficiency, increase revenue and optimize quality in primary care medicine. Customers subscribe to the web-based application on an annual subscription-fee basis, with total product costs based on the number of clinicians at a site who are using the clinical quality management software.

"We were looking for an Internet-based registry system that would enable us to track all chronic diseases for all our patients," noted Marianna Webb, M~PC PHO's Executive Director. "After reviewing the available commercial offerings, we concluded that Cielo Clinic equipped us with the best tool for chronic disease management and wellness screenings, as well as for extracting useful centralized reports across multiple practices."

Ms. Webb continued, "A major healthcare quality initiative here in Michigan and throughout the U.S. is the IPIP (Improving Performance in Practice) program, which we're proactively adopting here at M~PC PHO. Implementing Cielo Clinic will help us achieve the IPIP program quality goals faster and more consistently -- a key motivator for us behind choosing Cielo.

"Another key driver in our decision," said Webb, "is Cielo Clinic enables us to track and report on preventive screenings so we can optimally participate in pay-for-performance programs such as Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan's PGIP (Physician Group Incentive Program)."
