 Zajac, CareScience senior vice president and chief operating officer.  "The

 record sales achievement in Q1.  We have now added 24 facilities year to date,
 and are increasingly optimistic on our prospects for Q2 and beyond."
     "Improving patient safety and care quality is a major priority for us,"
 said Richard Hanson, Bon Secours Hampton Roads chief executive officer.
 "CareScience has already shown opportunities for improved processes that lead
 to better clinical outcomes through their Care Management System.  As a
 result, we are excited to designate CareScience as our preferred provider of
 care management services to these three facilities."
     "Bon Secours Hampton Roads takes its responsibility seriously to enhance
 the quality of care in our community," said Stephen Moore, M.D., Bon Secours
 Hampton Roads executive vice president of Care Delivery.  "A relationship with
 CareScience is a first step toward medical errors management in health care."

 to improve clinical efficiency, reduce medical errors, and improve patient
 safety.  As an application service provider of Internet-based products since
 1996, CareScience offers cost-effective access to hosted data, sophisticated
 processing technology and analysis methods.  CareScience additionally provides
 other Internet-based services and education programs that improve clinical
 quality and efficiency.
