Business Editors/High-Tech & Health Writers

JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 29, 2000 (AMEX:MED), a leading application service provider (ASP) of comprehensive health-care portal solutions, today announced that its U.K. division, e-Net Technology, will be showcasing the company's B2B software and services product, known as e-MedConnect in the United States and as esparto in the United Kingdom, at the Exchange in Healthcare Information Conference and Exhibition (HIC2000) in Torquay, England, on Oct. 3-4, 2000.

The esparto solution provides a direct procurement source for organizations within the health-care sector to purchase goods and consumable maintenance, repair and operating supplies and services, saving them both time and money by making the supply chain more transparent.

The esparto e-business application suite -- which is capable of running on all platforms and interfacing with all leading databases -- has been adapted by e-MedSoft's e-Net Division for use in procurement because of its exceptional speed, scalability and resilience.

The esparto e-procurement solution improves the overall delivery time frame and efficiency of supply delivery as well as eliminating inaccurate order entries within hospitals and other health-care organizations by replacing traditional paper-based ordering to allow for "just-in-time" purchasing, thereby reducing the amount of inventory held at any one time.

Health-care staffs operating the application are able to browse a product catalog and select items to specific requirements and technical specifications from preapproved suppliers. Once the "virtual shopping cart" has been filled and the order placed, it is instantaneously passed into the requisitioning process for approval by an authorized user, thus empowering staff to make procurement decisions within predefined budgets.

John F. Andrews,'s chairman and chief executive officer, stated: "We believe that is well positioned to continue the rollout of our B2B software and services, and have been extremely pleased with the demand for them, both in the United States as well as abroad.

"The HIC2000 conference provides an excellent opportunity to showcase our solutions and to demonstrate the flexibility and cost-effectiveness they provide in helping health-care organizations conduct their business."
