informedHEALTH to Offer the ALRT500 Disease Management Compliance Reminder and Monitoring System Along With Early Disease Detection for Chronic Care Patients in the Third Quarter of 2006

WINSTON-SALEM, NC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 23, 2006 -- ALR Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: ALRT) is pleased to announce that informedHEALTH, LLC, based in Charlotte, NC, plans a third quarter launch of the ALRT500 Medication Compliance Reminder and Home Health monitoring system to be used along with early disease detection for its chronic care patient population.

informedHEALTH offers specialized health management services that emphasize early risk detection and intervention and has decided to add the ALRT500 System to support greater participant compliance in chronic condition medication therapy. Thomas Revels, CEO and founder of the company, states, "Many people desire to do the right things to improve their health, such as take their mediations on schedule, but the reality is we all live a busy, fast-paced lifestyle. People get caught up in their daily activities and forget to take their meds. I believe the ALRT500 system provides a simple, yet effective means of prompting people and enhancing levels of compliance with therapeutic medication plans. People who take their medications as prescribed have fewer medical complications and cost health plans less money than their existing detection and intervention systems."

According to Mr. Revels, his company provides proven services that increase health plan member participation in early detection screenings, moderate individual's health risks, and reduce claims costs associated with maintaining their Good Health. "By incorporating the ALRT500 system with our existing services, we believe that our positive results will rise to an even higher level. Ongoing patient compliance management is missing in nearly every disease management program and the combination of service ideas and offerings of our two companies will enable us to bring to the market the most effective health management programming in the nation," says Mr. Revels.
