| July 7, 2011 |

eviti, Inc. (formerly ITA Partners) announced today that Maryland Physicians Care (MPC) will use its proprietary oncology decision-support platform to improve oncology care and manage costs for its patients.

MPC physicians will use the web-based platform to improve adherence to evidence-based care for cancer patients and to obtain preauthorization for treatment at the point-of-care.

Bringing authorization to the point-of-care expedites the treatment process. Combined with the assurance of appropriate care using eviti’s knowledge base of over 1,000 proven treatment standards covering all cancer types, MPC can expect improved outcomes – both medically and financially,” said Eduardo Beruff, chief executive officer and president at eviti.

MPC is committed to improving care for its members and providing physicians with necessary tools to effectively manage patient care.

As a Medicaid plan, we have a responsibility to validate the proper use of state and federal funds. The eviti platform will help us ensure that our members with a cancer diagnosis will receive the appropriate care from the start, and that we reimburse physicians only for quality care,” said Dr. David Yalowitz, chief medical officer at MPC.

Beruff said that MPC, its members and health providers will benefit from eviti’s collaborative, real-time approach to improving care and lowering risks and costs:

Members will benefit from appropriate, expedited treatment for their cancer.
Providers will have systematic access to the latest, most comprehensive evidence-based treatment standards and benefit from streamlined reimbursement.
MPC will be assured that members are receiving cost-effective, quality care within the scope of plan benefits.
