On March 15, 2010, Eclipsys Corporation (Eclipsys) granted long-term performance stock units (PSUs) to the Eclipsys Named Executive Officers (as defined in Regulation S-K Item 402(a)(3)) set forth below. The PSU awards were approved by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of Eclipsys and the PSU awards are intended to encourage and reward future long-term performance.

The PSU amounts shown are nominal values; each PSU represents a contingent right to receive a number of shares of Eclipsys common stock ranging from zero to 2.25, depending upon Eclipsys total shareholder return (TSR) compared to the TSRs of a group of pre-selected companies in the healthcare technology and software industries over a performance period ending on the third anniversary of the grant date (or, if earlier, a change of control or qualifying termination of employment). Eclipsys TSR performance at the 50th percentile will result in the issuance of one share per unit, performance at the 25th percentile or below will result in issuance of no shares, and performance at the 90th percentile or above will result in issuance of 2.25 shares per unit. Performance between these points will be scaled.
The descriptions of the PSU awards set forth in this Item 5.02(e) are general in nature and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the form of Performance Stock Unit Agreement attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1.
