News Release: Lumeris Selected by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida to Improve Quality of Care in South Florida Region

ST. LOUIS — June 8, 2010 — Lumeris today announced Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida, Inc., (BCBSF) has implemented the company’s innovative Accountable Delivery System Platform (ADSP)® to help lower costs and enhance the quality of health care delivered to BCBSF Medicare Advantage enrollees in southern Florida.

“The highest-quality health care requires a truly engaged network of providers,” said Richard Jones, president of Lumeris. “We’re pleased BCBSF is leveraging our technology platform to help make that level of engagement possible.”

“By using the Lumeris platform, we will engage and empower our network of providers with information that will further improve both the cost and the quality of care delivered to thousands of Medicare beneficiaries in southern Florida,” said Jane Tuten, vice president of senior products, BCBSF.

In most health care organizations, data is trapped in silos that make it difficult or impossible to perform meaningful analysis. Lumeris aggregates claim, pharmacy, lab and other pertinent data from across the entire continuum of care within a specialized data warehouse, where the data is transformed into actionable information and decision support interventions shown to lower the cost and improve the quality of health care.
