COLUMBUS, Ohio and ADDISON, Texas, Sept. 21, 2004 – VECTORsgi, a leading provider of financial transaction applications, and Foresight Corporation, a market leader in transaction processing automation for healthcare, have announced a partnership to deliver innovative technology solutions to banks.

Under the terms of the alliance, VECTORsgi will provide its banking customers versions of its market-leading VECTOR E-Payments Solution software currently used by over 40 of the top 50 U.S. banks for electronic payment file translation, processing, and settlement. The solution will now include the high-speed validation and business activity monitoring (BAM) functions of Foresight’s InStream and Transaction Insight solutions. This technology is widely used by healthcare payers and providers to validate patient claims, remittance advices, and other healthcare transactions in HIPAA format, eliminate the batch rejection of claims and provide real-time dashboard monitoring of transaction processing operations. Additional capabilities include the automated generation of instant alerts triggered by errors as well as other predefined criteria.

“Banks are seeking to enhance the bill paying services they provide, including payments of healthcare claims,” said Robert A. Fisher, president and chief executive officer, Foresight Corporation. “With their outstanding presence in banking, VECTORsgi is ideally positioned to introduce real-time business activity monitoring technology. Their extensive banking product line and prestigious customer base will accelerate its adoption to the benefit of banking customers.”

“Foresight has an unmatched track record in facilitating healthcare transactions,” said Sydney Smith Hicks, Ph.D., president and chief executive officer, VECTORsgi. “With their leadership in BAM technology and HIPAA compliance matched with our integrated payment offerings, bank operating risks are reduced and compliance with HIPAA rules is assured.”
