AMES Color-File and InSite One Are Pleased to Announce New Dealer Agreement

Information Management Providers Join Forces to Offer DICOM Management Solutions

SOMERVILLE, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 27, 2007 -- AMES Color-File, the national provider of information management solutions for healthcare, announces that its affiliate, AMES Digital, LLC and InSite One Inc., a leading service provider of data archiving, storage, and disaster recovery solutions, have reached a distribution agreement.

AMES, well known for their film management system and PACS CD Mailers -- an attractive and secure way to send patient data -- is now an authorized dealer of InSite One's entire service line of archiving, migration, and disaster recovery solutions. Hospitals, imaging centers, and physician group practices can benefit from a versatile, secure and affordable service called InDex® for managing the archiving, storage access and disaster recovery of digital radiology, cardiology, and mammography services.

"AMES and InSite One are working towards the same goals -- keeping medical data secure and easily accessible to authorized users. Our solutions for the healthcare industry blend well together to provide a smooth transition into the digital format -- now, and into the future," stated Mitchell Goldburgh, InSite One's Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sales.

As technology advances, radiology departments are moving from traditional X-ray to images distributed on CD ROM and electronically, via InDex Link and InDex Web services. This new arrangement gives customers the tools they need, for either traditional film based, or innovative DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) environments.

"With our customer base converting to digital information management practices, we are excited to offer solutions to make patient data more accessible to physicians and their staff, while at the same time highlighting innovative patient care," added Bob Arnold, President of AMES Digital.

The diagnostic imaging industry continues to take advantage of the technological advancements brought forth by such companies as AMES and InSite One; which for our mutual clients leads to efficient information management and distribution.
