Tele-Interpretation of Hepatitis Serology Test Results Integrated Into Soarian (November 19, 2007)—Tele-interpretation by Hepaxpert was successfully established and integrated into Soarian, one of the hospital information systems designed by Siemens Company (Xetra: SIE, NYSE: SI, LSE: SIE, SWX: SIN). Hepaxpert, a clinical decision support system for automated interpretation of hepatitis A, B, and C serology test results resides on Teleiatros, Medexter's remote medical decision support server. When unknown or complex combinations of hepatitis serology test results arrive in Soarian or are encountered during the attending physician's work flow, Hepaxpert is accessed remotely. A clinically-oriented, extended interpretation of these test results is automatically generated, sent back to Soarian, and displayed for the benefit of the attending physician. More than 60,000 different combinations can be interpreted. Personal data are not needed. The access time is negligible.

World of Health IT (October 22, 2007)—At the symposium "World of Health IT" in Vienna/Austria, our CEO and Scientific Head, Professor Klaus-Peter Adlassnig, gave an invited talk on "Artificial-intelligence-based monitoring of hospital-acquired infections in adult intensive care patients".

Hepaxpert – Knowledge-Based Hepatitis Serology Test Result Interpretation (October 15, 2007)—Hepaxpert—a knowledge-based interpretive system for hepatitis A, B, and C serology test results—has now been rendered suitable for production by Medexter Healthcare. It is being routinely used at the Department of Laboratory Diagnosis, Franz Josef Hospital, Vienna, since 1998 onward. Technically, Hepaxpert is available as an Arden-Syntax-MLM medical knowledge package either with or without an Arden Syntax rule engine. It can be integrated into medical or laboratory information systems, used as a web-based medical decision support system with browser-based or direct server access, or be delivered as a stand-alone application or even as a simple rule package for customer-specific implementation.

Invited Talk at MIT Faculty Club, Cambridge (September 24, 2007)—At the 12th Annual Future of Health Technology Summit FHT 2007, MIT Faculty Club in Cambridge/U.S.A., our CEO and Scientific Head, Professor Klaus-Peter Adlassnig, gave an invited talk on "Artificial-intelligence-based hospital infection control".

Cooperation with the Medical University of Vienna, Austria (September 7, 2007)—A cooperative agreement between the Medical University of Vienna (MUW), Austria, and Medexter Healthcare was signed by the rector of the MUW, Univ.-Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Schütz, and Medexter. This agreement is written confirmation of extensive mutual exchange of ideas and knowledge, as well as results, in the vast field of clinical decision support. Both parties are convinced that this cooperation will not only enhance the practical utility of research results but also intensify and focus research on clinical decision support itself.

Moni IV in Routine Use at the Vienna General Hospital (July 1, 2007)—After an extended development and test phase, the Moni-IV system (knowledge-based identification and automated monitoring of hospital-acquired infections in adult intensive care unit (ICU) patients) could be transferred into routine use at the infection control department of the Vienna General Hospital. To apply it, data from the microbiology department and twelve ICUs that run CareVue patient data management systems by Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA) had to be accessed. The infection control unit receives infection notifications, evaluates them, and contacts the clinicians of the concerned wards. The Moni-IV system is the outcome of extended collaboration between the Medical University of Vienna, the Vienna General Hospital, the Philips Company, Software Unlimited, and Medexter Healthcare. In addition to using Moni-IV for avoiding hospital-acquired infections, it is also applied for research and reporting.

Evolution '07, Graz (June 22, 2007)—At the symposium "Evolution '07" in Graz/Austria, our CEO and Scientific Head, Professor Klaus-Peter Adlassnig, gave an invited talk on "Clinical decision support".

Symposium on Processes and Medical Ontologies, Berlin (June 18, 2007)—At the Symposium on Processes and Medical Ontologies that was organized by ID Gesellschaft für Information und Dokumentation im Gesundheitswesen mbH in Berlin/Germany, our CEO and Scientific Head, Professor Klaus-Peter Adlassnig, gave an invited talk on "Partial automation of clinical pathways and guidelines using Arden Syntax software".

ID Berlin Products Enhanced by Medexter's Arden Syntax Software (May 5, 2007)—A long-term contract between ID Gesellschaft für Information und Dokumentation im Gesundheitswesen mbH, Berlin, Germany, and Medexter Healthcare has been concluded. The contract permits ID to use Medexter's medical knowledge representation and inference Arden Syntax software in their products. Thus, the products will be enhanced by extended reminder and alert functionality.

Arden Syntax Software für Medical Knowledge Representation and Inference (April 1, 2007)—Medexter Healthcare announces the completion of the medical knowledge representation and inference Arden Syntax software. The software is programmed in Java. Its main components are an Arden Syntax IDE, the integrated development environment to write and test Arden Syntax medical logic modules (MLMs), an Arden Syntax compiler, an Arden Syntax engine, an Arden Syntax-to-host-interface, and an Arden Syntax server to process compiled MLMs either remote or on-site. The Arden Syntax software can be integrated into host systems or accessed through interfaces.

Telemedical Decision Support in Clinical Medicine (March 20, 2007)—At the Conference for Telemedical Applications and Technologies (TeleHealth 2007) in Hannover/Germany, our CEO and Scientific Head, Professor Klaus-Peter Adlassnig, gave an invited talk on "Telemedical decision support in clinical medicine".
