         CareCentric's new Windows-based Home Health Care System Brings
            Strong, Affordable, Scheduling and Compliance Tracking to
             Private Duty, Staffing and Medicare-Certified Agencies

               CareCentric's AC-CURA(TM)geared to agencies focused
                        on high-performance bottom line

provider of management  information  systems to the home health care  community,
today announced the availability of AC-CURA(TM),  a windows-based,  feature-rich
billing and operations  management  system that brings control,  flexibility and
ease of use to the home care industry in an affordable  and fast  implementation
package.  One  unique  feature  is  AC-CURA's  comprehensive  scheduling  system
designed with a color-coded,  click and drag format for fast  identification and
scheduling.  Enhanced  features enable  agencies to schedule  multiple shifts or
visits, easily match skills to employee and client preferences and enable access
by multiple  schedulers.  Compliance  validation  tracking features prevent both
private duty and certified  agencies from scheduling  employees that do not meet
agency compliance rules.

"The AC-CURA(TM)  system is designed to help agencies  closely monitor,  manage,
and enhance their financial performance," said John R. Festa,  CareCentric's CEO
and President.  "AC-CURA's  strength lies in its  simplicity.  As information is
automatically  passed from doctor's  orders to scheduling to electronic  billing
and  payroll,   AC-CURA(TM)  provides  many  opportunities  along  the  way  for
compliance checks and visit  validation.  These crucial check points ensure that
each step is completed  correctly the first time. The results - speedy,  precise
intake, scheduling and billing and increased cash flow."

"While  most  systems  address  the  needs  of  a  specific  line  of  business,
AC-CURA(TM)  system  features  meet  the  needs  of  licensed  and/or  certified
agencies",  added Mr.  Festa.  "We believe that this fact  combined with overall
system functionality,  cost-effective hardware, fast implementation and training
and an  affordable  price  tag  creates  an  overall  package  that  produces  a
significant return on investment for any agency."

AC-CURA(TM)  runs  on  Windows   95/98/NT/2000/ME/XP  and  is  designed  with  a
streamlined GUI-applications format that offers agencies easy access to the data
they need at every level for critical decision making,  increased  productivity,
informative  performance  outcomes and improved  quality of care.  AC-CURA(TM)'s


application design promotes efficient system utilization by enabling user access
based upon specific roles and responsibilities in billing,  scheduling, and care
management.  Powerful  employee,  client,  and payer  management  and scheduling
functionality  offer multiple  compliance  validation checks of physician orders
and payer  authorization  limits and  ensure  that only  verified  visit data is
forwarded  to  payroll  and  billing.  A  comprehensive  billing  system  allows
payer/client-pricing  structure,  payer billing periods and re-bill  capability.
Flexible  reporting  features  include many standard  reports  geared to keeping
agencies informed on their current financial  status.  AC-CURA  integrates OASIS
and PPS into the workflow for all patient  Medicare  services.  The system meets
all current HIPAA regulatory requirements.

The name  AC-CURA(TM)  is  derived  from  the  Latin  root  "CURA"  which  means
management and care.  The prefix "AC" is a derivative of the word accurate.  The
combination of both root terms,  into AC-CURA,  truly  represents the essence of
CareCentric's  new system - accurate  home care  management.  The new product is
associated  with  a new  company  tagline  -  SPEED.  PRECISION.  RESULTS  - and
represents the company's mission to provide advanced solutions and services that
are easy to use, fast, accurate and that consistently  provide a positive return
on investment.

The AC-CURA(TM)  solution is designed for both single or multi-office  locations
and is especially cost-effective for small to mid-size agencies. Agencies can be
up and  running  on  AC-CURA(TM)  in as  little  as  five  weeks.  In  addition,
AC-CURA(TM) is available with  CareCentric's  Visit  Assistant(TM)  clinical PDA
system as well as with  Santrax(TM),  the nation's  leading  telephone  time and
attendance solution.

CareCentric provides  information  technology systems and services to over 1,500
customers.  CareCentric provides  freestanding,  hospital-based and multi-office
home health care  providers  (including  skilled  nursing,  private  duty,  home
medical equipment and supplies,  IV pharmacy and hospice)  complete  information
solutions  that  enable  these home care  operations  to  generate  and  utilize
comprehensive and integrated  financial,  operational and clinical  information.
With offices nationwide, the company is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia.
