providers need to drive efficiency, profitability, and quality.

The Rock-Pond acquisition provides Mediware with opportunities for

collaborative work on the CareTend product roadmap. Acquiring Rock-Pond
further enhances Mediware's portfolio of industry-leading software
solutions. The acquisition uniquely positions Mediware to develop even

customers with enhanced insights to help them streamline processes and
make smarter decisions.

and they have successfully helped Mediware's CareTend software become
the strong solution it is today," said Bill Miller, CEO of Mediware. "By
acquiring Rock-Pond Solutions, we are strengthening our software
offerings to truly help our customers deliver better care to patients
across the entire spectrum of post-acute settings by using business
intelligence and analytics in meaningful ways."

consistency. Additionally, Mediware plans to accelerate investment in
analytics and expertise, beyond CareTend, and continue to drive product
innovation.

"Our longtime partnership with Mediware shows that we both have a shared
understanding of how business intelligence and analytics helps
post-acute facilities streamline decision making and enhance patient
care delivery," said Pete Tanguay, President of Rock-Pond Solutions.

even better software solutions, business intelligence, and new products."
