ImageXpres Announces "Digital" Surgical Safety Checklist for Apple iPhone, iPod Touch

Surg-i-Scan™ Checklist System Has Potential for Improved Patient Care Worldwide

ROCHESTER, NY--(Marketwire - February 4, 2010) - ImageXpres Corporation (PINKSHEETS: IMJX), today announced that its Surg-i-Scan™ "digital" Surgical Safety Checklist system will soon be available as an Apple software "app" via the Apple iTunes Online Store. The Surg-i-Scan™ "digital" surgical safety checklist software has been designed to reinforce and document improved surgical safety protocols resulting from hospital use of surgical safety checklists now being used by hospitals in the U.S. and abroad.

John Zankowski, ImageXpres President and CEO, states, "The ImageXpres Surg-i-Scan™ 'digital' Surgical Safety Checklist Software, and accompanying checklist flatscreen displays, has been undergoing rigorous testing, and the software is now ready for large-scale sales to hospitals, clinics, and physicians offices. The downloadable software will be available as a free, 30-day evaluation by the hospital surgical staff, to determine its effectiveness and performance in their own operating rooms. Once the trial period is over, the software, with requisite customization, will be licensed to the hospital on a one-time, per user basis. ImageXpres will provide all upgrades and support for the software, as well as back-up storage for hospital provider personnel, at a yearly or monthly rate. Our goal is to make the digital checklist very affordable for millions of hospital providers, thus generating strong market pull for the unique, patient safety product. General availability for hospital sales through the iTunes store is anticipated to be no later than March 1, 2010."

ImageXpres is working closely with a key Apple software development partner, along with a number of medical surgical supply organizations, in order to reach thousands of hospitals in a timely manner. The U.S. market is estimated at over $25 million annually, based upon the number of surgical operating suites, and could reach over $100 million annually by 2012.

ImageXpres also manufactures and markets analog, custom-designed Surg-i-Scan™ Safety Checklist boards for operating rooms. The digital software product can augment the effectiveness of the analog Surg-i-Scan™ Safety Checklist boards, or can be used independently, using an Apple iPhone, or iPod Touch device, providing valuable documentation of all surgical procedures on an ongoing, daily basis.

Mr. Zankowski, concludes, "We are very excited about this particular product, as it is one is one that truly can benefit every hospital and surgical suite no matter where they are located. The WHO study has documented the benefits of surgical safety checklists for hospitals and patients, in terms of lowered deaths and lowered surgical procedural errors, thus saving lives and improving healthcare delivery. Our Surg-i-Scan™ 'digital' Surgical Safety Checklist product now makes it affordable and easy for any hospital, in any country, to test out the usefulness of a surgical safety checklist process, and make immediate improvements in patient safety."
