Orion Outcomes Enhanced With Custom Outcomes Option

Longmont, Colorado — July 16, 2003 — Orion Software Development, the leading provider of medical outcome software solutions, today announced a new add-on option for its popular Orion Outcomes software. Via a new add-on module, Orion Outcomes will allow for the definition of up to 48 custom outcomes (24 cardiac, 24 pulmonary). Previously, Orion Outcomes restricted customers to the use of only standardized outcomes. Custom outcomes cannot be benchmarked externally through the Orion Outcomes Benchmarking Service.

“Over the last few years as Orion Outcomes usage has grown, we have heard more and more customers say that they would like to have a way to collect specific outcome values that are of internal interest to their program within Orion Outcomes”, said Brandon Fuller, President of Orion Software Development. “Our hope is that by providing this functionality, we can empower our customers to test & create new and more efficient outcomes tools.”

Since customized outcomes are not for every program, Orion Software Development has chosen to provide the custom outcomes functionality as a separately priced add-on module as opposed to creating an upgrade charge for all customers. In these challenging economic times for rehabilitation programs, the model where customers pay only for functionality enhancements they require seems to be preferred by customers.

In version 2.5 of Orion Outcomes, customers will be able to utilize a preview of the custom outcomes add-on module at no additional charge. Customers will have the opportunity to create 2 custom outcomes (1 cardiac, 1 pulmonary) of their choosing to experience this new functionality.

Availability

The custom outcomes add-on is immediately available for $350 per Orion Outcomes site.

The service release of version 2.5 for Orion Outcomes with the preview of custom outcomes will be available near the end of July 2003.
