My Health Care Manager Wins Prestigious TechPoint Mira Award
Cutting Edge Technology Recognized for Excellence and Innovation

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - May 20, 2010 My Health Care Manager, a national leader in managing the issues and options of aging, has been recognized as one of Indiana’s high-tech success stories. The company has received a TechPoint Mira Award for its SCANS™/Care Advisor information technology. With its extensive knowledge base and decision support system, SCANS™/Care Advisor enables health care managers to tap into industry-wide best practices, recommended actions and real world tools in order to ensure a high quality experience for seniors and their families.

“Eldercare is a growing issue affecting seniors, their children and their children’s employers. Today there are more than 40 million Americans who are 65 or older. By 2050, there will be more than 70 million -an astounding increase in just a few short decades,” said Jane Niederberger, president, My Health Care Manager, Inc. “Our program helps simplify what can be a complex, expensive and intimidating health care system - especially if you are older or if you are caring for a parent.”

SCANS™/Care Advisor was selected from seven finalists in the category. The technology, which was created by an extensive team of experts in geriatric medicine, health informatics, engineering and computer science, is designed to provide consistent, quality care and advice to health care managers. SCANS™/Care Advisor is the foundation of My Health Care Manager’s holistic, personalized and comprehensive approach to geriatric management services for seniors and families.

“Again this year, we attracted a record number of Mira Award nominations,” said Mark Hill, TechPoint chairman and a managing partner of Collina Ventures. “Even during the worst of the national recession, this program generated more and more interest and enthusiasm from an expanding group of Indiana high-tech companies and organizations.”

Now in its 11th year, the Mira TechPoint Awards highlight Indiana’s technology success stories. TechPoint promotes technology-based enterprise and economic development through lobbying and government advocacy, educational and networking programs, and strategic economic development initiatives. It is the only statewide organization representing Indiana’s technology sector.
