MedLink Acquires 100% of Anywhere MD

ISLANDIA, NY--(Marketwire - January 9, 2008) - MedLink International, Inc. (OTCBB: MLKNA) announced today that it has completed the full acquisition of all the outstanding assets and operations of Anywhere MD, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: ANWM), a leading provider of mobile EMR solutions to healthcare facilities in the chiropractic market. MedLink had acquired approximately 63% of Anywhere MD back in May of 2007 and the management of both companies agreed that a full acquisition by MedLink would allow for the companies to take more advantage of economies of scale as the companies release a fully integrated Auto-Doc solution in early 2008 with the MedLink EHR.

Steve Hixson, President of Anywhere MD, stated, "For Auto-Doc to continue as a market leader, it was essential that scheduling and billing enhancements to Auto-Doc be implemented to keep up with current and future market demands. In addition, integration with MedLink's flagship EHR solution provides Auto-Doc users with immediate interoperability with connections to labs, pharmacies, and radiology centers that will not only create efficiencies for their practice's but provide overall better patient care."

MedLink also provides Anywhere MD with financial, technical and marketing resources with access to their IT development center in India as well as increased sales potential nationally through expanded sales channels and national affiliations.

"This acquisition makes good business sense. Bringing Anywhere MD into the MedLink family will result in greater operating efficiencies and significant cost savings through elimination of redundancies," said Ray Vuono CEO of MedLink International, Inc. "In addition, Anywhere MD will be able to expand into markets where MedLink is established and vice versa. In the very near future Anywhere MD will be relocating to new offices in Atascadero, California and will begin training new personnel at MedLink's corporate headquarters in New York."
