("ApolloMed") (OTC-QB: AMEH), to provision and launch its CERECONS Health IT Solution for ApolloMed ACO.
CERECONS' robust, feature-rich software solutions will support ApolloMed ACO, one of only eight ACOs in California selected by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) to participate in its Medicare Shared Savings Program ("MSSP") in 2012.

"Today's ACOs require proven, state-of-the-art Health IT that helps them manage the complex clinical needs of their patient population. CERECONS will empower ApolloMed ACO with the solutions and tools to manage patient care and resources, while automating routine workflow and day-to-day functions like claims managements, referrals and eligibility. This frees up valuable time so that ApolloMed's physicians and staff can deliver care, treatment and services to their patients," stated Philip Paul, President of Unlimited Innovations, the parent company of CERECONS.
