Statement From UWMF Regarding the Dismissal of the IDX & Epic Lawsuit.

Business Editors/Medical & Technology Writers

MADISON, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--August 29, 2002

The University of Wisconsin Medical Foundation (UWMF) is very pleased that the dispute between IDX, Epic and UWMF has been dismissed. UWMF is happy to be able to redirect resources away from this matter so that our faculty physicians can more fully engage in the work of patient care, teaching students and developing new medical knowledge.

The legal proceedings that have taken place since our choice of Epic as a vendor for our new Billing, Scheduling and Patient Management Systems have been complex and acrimonious. We have felt comfortable with our position throughout.

After a long and painstaking process of due diligence, we chose Epic over IDX as our vendor. The implementation of the Epic system, now well under way, has gone smoothly and we are delighted with the support received from Epic. We remain extremely pleased with our decision; it is one we would make again without hesitation.

UWMF is the non-profit medical education and research organization that supports the clinical practices of the faculty physicians of the UW Medical School.
