Ensuring healthcare industry’s mobile database integrity forms basis for partnership

Farmingdale, N.Y. – June 19, 2002 – NovaSync Corp. (www.novasync.com) today announced an agreement with InterSystems Corporation to incorporate InterSystems’ CACHÉ database into NovaSync’s suite of mobile healthcare applications that include Pocket Point of Care™, Home Care Planner™ and Resident Tracker™. By integrating the high performance CACHÉ database with NovaSync’s powerful, easy to use PDA and tablet-based healthcare solutions, NovaSync plans to deliver a suite of superior enterprise-grade mobile applications that address key issues large healthcare organizations face when undertaking mobile initiatives: database security, stability and scalability. Healthcare organizations already using CACHÉ at the desktop level will reap the additional benefit of being able to achieve seamless data integration between their back office and field-based operations. InterSystems is the database software leader in the healthcare sector, with CACHÉ in use at America’s 10 best hospitals, as rated by U.S. News and World Report. NovaSync is the first InterSystems partner to incorporate CACHÉ in a mobile software application. As part of the agreement, the combined solution will be jointly marketed on a national and international basis.

“Ensuring the stability, integrity and seamless integration of large mobile databases is a key concern for healthcare organizations, so we’re pleased to be working with the most trusted database provider in the healthcare industry,” said Joseph Harvey, president & CEO of NovaSync. “It’s our goal to offer total mobile solutions to our healthcare clients.
