ATLANTA, March 1, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HIMSS10 Conference (booth No. 4608) -- Covisint, a Compuware (Nasdaq:CPWR) company, today announced a partnership agreement with CareTech Solutions to leverage the Covisint ExchangeLink™ for Healthcare platform to enhance CareTech's physician and patient portal capabilities.

"CareTech's focus has been on the management of robust healthcare infrastructures, including solutions inside and outside the firewall," said Pat Milostan, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for CareTech Solutions. "Once outside the firewall, it's an entirely different world of complexity and security challenges. Only Covisint offered the world-class platform we need for secure log-in authentication -- far exceeding our expectations in terms of capability, cost and time to market."

CareTech Solutions provides IT and web products and services to hospitals and health systems nationwide. As its customers required more options to connect, communicate and collaborate with patients and physicians, CareTech sought an integrated and secure platform on which to develop its web portals. CareTech chose Covisint's proven and industry-hardened ExchangeLink healthcare platform to extend its capabilities and facilitate the increasingly important patient-to-physician collaboration channel.

"CareTech has an outstanding track record of delivering value for its hospital customers," said Brett Furst, Vice President of Healthcare, Covisint. "And this Covisint and CareTech partnership will offer one more tool for CareTech to use when helping its hospital customers achieve meaningful use."
