MedLink Announces RHIO Financial Sustainability Model

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - April 27, 2010) -  MedLink (OTCBB: MLKNA) announced today the establishment of the MedLink Regional Health Information Organization (RHIO) financial sustainability model. MedLink will offer the model through strategic partnership with RHIO's and other healthcare service providers to supplement and lessen the RHIO's need to rely on membership dues and federal and state grants to sustain the rapid expansion of RHIO's. 

Ray Vuono, President of MedLink, stated, "We've had a great response from several RHIO organizations across the country to MedLink's RHIO financial sustainability model. Through MedLink's strategic partnerships and partnerships with RHIO's that are experiencing rapid growth, the MedLink RHIO model provides the organization with cash flow opportunities to sustain the continued growth of adding additional Providers to their respective networks to enhance access to patient health information, ultimately improving the quality of patient care by assisting providers in the adoption of Electronic Health Records. A key aspect of the model and the benefits a RHIO provides is guiding the providers towards 'meaningful use' through the sharing of clinical data with the Health Information Exchange (HIE) provided through the RHIO to satisfy some of the requirements to qualifying for the wealth of available federal incentives under 'meaningful use' and the HITECH Act."
