FOSTER CITY, CA--iManage has released a Java-based version of its collaborative content management tool. iManage Worksite MP (multi-platform) combines document management, collaboration, workflow and portal access into a single, integrated Java-based solution that operates across Windows NT, Linux and Solaris platforms, iManage says. The tool includes four components: WorkDocs MP, a Web-based document management solution; WorkTeam MP, a collaboration application providing dispersed teams with virtual work spaces accessible via the Internet, intranet or extranet; WorkRoute MP, a workflow application; and WorkPortal, a portal application that provides members of an extended enterprise secure and consolidated access to business content from multiple sources.

SALT LAKE CITY--Ingenix, Inc., released the next generation of its claims edit system for healthcare payors. Among the capabilities of Ingenix Claims Edit System (iCES) are rules-creation logic, allowing implementation of user-defined rules through its Rules Creation Manager (RCM) module; and auditing logic, which enables claims to be processed against policies in effect at the time services are rendered, the vendor says. Accessed through Web browsers, iCES quickly analyzes medical claims, checking each claim for errors, omissions and questionable coding relationships, and tests data against thousands of government, industry and corporate rules, regulations and policies governing healthcare claims, Ingenix says.



SAN DIEGO--Captiva has released FormWare 4.5, which expands on the previous version of the firm's flagship product by adding capabilities for processing forms with variable formats, such as invoices, bills of lading, purchase orders, dental forms, mortgage insurance and real estate tax bills and credit card applications. Version 4.5's "auto training" and "virtual classification" capabilities allow FormWare to automatically learn new form variants, significantly reducing application development time and maintenance efforts, according to the vendor.



CITY OF INDUSTRY, CA--Broadax Systems, Inc., has released what it says is the first single-board computer (SBC) to bring Intel (Santa Clara, CA) Pentium 4 processing power to embedded computer applications. The new SBC-9782 also has graphics features on a par with desktop systems and hardware for dual high-speed local-area networks, and a PCI-ISA bridge has been included so that existing application systems can be upgraded with the new processing power and graphics, Broadax says. The SBC-9782 provides a Socket-478 base for Pentium processors up to 2.0GHz, supported by an Intel 845S chipset, two DIMM sockets for up to 2GB of SDRAM, an on-board Type II connector for Compact Flashor IBM Micro Drive, a 32MB 4X graphics processor, a built-in 256-bit 3D engine with up to 3K x 2K resolution, and an on-board MPEG 2/1 video decoder for VCD, DVD and HDTV.

V1.0 is built on HIPAA-mandated standards and includes online enrollment, eligibility and provider credentialing functions. eIP, which the vendor describes as the first fully end-to-end, purely Web-based integrated application service provider (ASP) for the insurance industry, will be leased to payors for their members' providers and purchasers to use through the payor's Web site.

FinanCenter's EMS can be delivered across an entire Web site or positioned inside any of FinanCenter's financial tools and solution centers. It delivers content, navigation and messaging tailored to the personal preferences and demographics of end-users, enabling companies to target best-fit products and services to clients, according to FinanCenter.

ROSELAND, NJ--Expand Networks has integrated new data integrity features into its ACCELERATOR product line. Drop Recovery Code (DRC) and Flow Control (FC), combined with the data-reduction benefits of the vendor's byte-level caching and compression technologies, can reduce data surge and increase the flow of rich-content enterprise applications, the vendor says. Drop Recovery Code helps deliver acceleration numbers and prevent packet loss on links with an ACCELERATOR at both ends, enabling networks to maintain synchronized links on WANs, even in the face of errors and congestion. Flow Control regulates and optimizes available bandwidth and network resources by limiting data flow to a specific bandwidth speed, Expand Network claims.
