Autonomy's Bayesian Inference Technology Introduces Groundbreaking Innovations to Help Providers Deliver Better Quality Care at Lower Costs

WASHINGTON, November 15, 2010 - HEALTHCARE IT SUMMIT — Autonomy Corporation plc (LSE: AU. or AU.L), a
global leader in infrastructure software for the enterprise, today announced
the availability of the Autonomy Meaning Based Healthcare (MBH) platform, a
comprehensive set of clinical diagnosis and information governance
technologies designed to help Healthcare Delivery Organizations (HDOs)
provide higher quality care at lower costs. Autonomy Meaning Based Healthcare
leverages the company's proven track record of working with some of the
world's largest HDOs as well as the company's unique ability to automatically
understand and process all forms of unstructured healthcare information.
Today Autonomy is a significant player in the healthcare market, with over
ten years of experience in providing groundbreaking technology to HDOs
including the American Medical Association, BlueCross BlueShield, Kaiser
Permanente, Loma Linda University Medical Center, NHS, and Sutter Health.

Autonomy is ideally positioned to provide improved understanding and
diagnosis of patient information and deliver comprehensive information
governance technologies that secure patient records and maintain compliance
with the ever-expanding set of healthcare regulations. Healthcare Delivery
Organizations today confront a constantly growing volume of unstructured and
structured healthcare information, increasingly complex industry regulations,
and heightened patient expectations and empowerment. Also, healthcare
providers worldwide face an increasing pressure to move to Electronic Health
Records (EHR). For example, in the United States, the recently-passed
American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) requires health care providers
to implement both Electronic Health Records and meet increasingly demanding
'meaningful use' outcome measures.

As the world's leading provider of software for unstructured information,
and the market leader in information governance technologies, Autonomy's
Meaning Based Healthcare platform is the ideal solution for the new era in

"We are excited about Autonomy's Meaning Based Healthcare initiative and
the unique opportunity it provides to healthcare organizations to leverage
the sprawling nature of medical information, easing the transition to
electronic records," said Brian Harris, Executive Director, Enterprise
Solutions at Loma Linda University Medical Center. "Healthcare providers that
are able to better leverage unstructured and structured information stored
within their healthcare applications will improve quality of care, reduce
costs, and treat far greater numbers of patients."

Improved Understanding of Patient Information with Autonomy Auminence

Diagnosis is a vital stage of patient care. Healthcare providers think in
terms of diagnoses, create treatment plans based on diagnoses, and
investigate likely causes of various diseases. A correct and early diagnosis
improves the quality of care, and reduces overall healthcare costs. Autonomy
Auminence, a powerful point-of-care analysis dashboard, is designed to help
the provider make better quality, data-driven, evidence-based diagnosis
decisions. Based on Autonomy's unique Bayesian inference technology,
Auminence represents a breakthrough for healthcare providers seeking to
transform healthcare delivery through a deeper and more meaningful
understanding of their data.

Auminence allows a healthcare professional to combine their personal
knowledge with the wealth of knowledge that exists on the patient and their
symptoms, clinical features, and related diseases - contained in the vast
volumes of "human-friendly" information that make up healthcare data.
Autonomy's unique technology automatically understands the meaning within all
this human-friendly information, draws parallels in the data, and recognizes
concepts and patterns.

Auminence provides a checklist of diagnoses for the clinician to consider
- indicating diagnoses that have the strongest statistical significance - and
also presents to the provider the all-important "unknown-unknowns" that are
ever-present at the point-of-care. These diagnoses may not be obvious, but by
connecting together important pieces of Electronic Medical Record data, lead
conclusively to a strong candidate for the correct diagnosis.

Archive and Secure Healthcare Data with Autonomy Information Governance

In recent years, healthcare delivery organizations have faced
dramatically increasing information governance challenges. The pace and
complexity of healthcare privacy and governance regulations continues to
rise, and legacy technologies struggle to properly understand and manage
HDO's enormous sets of data. The Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) now
applies to data in the EHR, and healthcare providers must apply legal holds
to data as necessary and appropriate.

As the global leader in information governance technology, Autonomy is
ideally positioned to help HDOs address these challenges. Autonomy is the
market leader in archiving, compliance, eDiscovery, and records management,
and also leads the market in private cloud computing, with over 17 Petabytes
under management. The company will apply the same meaning-based technologies
that have transformed information governance for the financial services,
legal, pharmaceutical, and retail, to the healthcare market.

Healthcare Delivery Organizations can leverage Autonomy's cloud and
on-premise information governance solutions to build out a much more
intelligent information governance strategy that better protects their
organization and drives down costs. Autonomy can archive and secure patient
records-even as medical archiving regulations change-because it automatically
recognizes concepts and contexts within all forms of information, and injects
this understanding into the company's comprehensive set of information
governance modules. Autonomy is also ideally suited to manage electronic
health records because it operates as an independent governance authority
over all of an organization's content, managing and controlling content
'in-place', regardless of format or location.

"I am very excited about the possibilities Autonomy's Meaning Based
Computing technology brings to healthcare," said Dr. Stephen Borowitz,
University of Virginia Medical Center. "Most of us believe Electronic Health
Records help healthcare providers deliver better and safer care, however the
real power of these systems will be when we can transform all the data we are
collecting into usable knowledge. To do this, we need technologies that help
us identify and characterize currently unseen patterns and meaning in the sea
of data and help us transform those patterns into usable knowledge."

"At its essence, healthcare is a human-based endeavor. Every patient is a
unique individual with specific histories and clinical features, and
healthcare information consists of a vast array of unstructured,
'human-friendly' information," said Dr. Joseph Britto, Head of Medical
Technologies at Autonomy. "As the world's leading provider in software for
unstructured information, with a proven track record in serving
highly-regulated, information intensive industries, we see healthcare as an
ideal market for Autonomy. Autonomy Meaning Based Healthcare provides
healthcare delivery organizations with a comprehensive platform for
significantly improving their clinical and business operations - helping them
to pave the way as leaders in the new era of healthcare."
