Aperture Health and PracticeOne Join Forces to Bring Wellness360 to 6 Million Patients Nationwide

MISSION VIEJO, CA--(Marketwire - June 26, 2008) - Aperture Health, Inc. (OTCBB: APRE) announced today a strategic partnership with PracticeOne, a leading national physician management provider. Aperture Health and PracticeOne will unite Aperture Health's wellness360 HIPAA-compliant personal health record (PHR) with PracticeOne's 2007 CCHIT Certified(SM) electronic health record (EHR). This will allow for consumer ownership of a portable paperless personal health record with the benefits of on-line prescription renewals and ordering, requests for lab tests and results, scheduling appointments, and reminders of important follow-up care. The 6 million patients of the 2,400 physician practices supported by PracticeOne, as well as the physicians' employees, can enjoy free wellness services provided by Aperture Health's wellness360.com paired with an exciting cash incentive program designed to help offset rising healthcare costs.

"This important partnership with PracticeOne bridges the chasm between what happens in the physician's office and what the patient does in their life. It ultimately creates the platform for consumer involved healthcare that everyone is seeking," said Aperture Health's President, Kenneth Westbrook. "Furthermore, our personal health record becomes an on-demand HIPAA-compliant emergency medical record at no cost to the patients, physicians, hospitals or insurance companies. This is an industry first and will improve patient outcomes."

"The innovation of companies like Aperture Health is necessary to ensure that healthcare consumers have alternatives to Microsoft and Google. Relying solely on two dominant technology vendors will result in limited consumer choices," said Thomas Banks, CEO and founder of Aperture Health. "Aperture Health's market-based solution ensures that healthcare consumers receive the technology and services they want and need, not simply solutions they are given," said Banks.

Kevin Gilbert, PracticeOne's Chief Operating Officer, said, "We are extremely pleased to announce the strategic partnership of PracticeOne and Aperture Health's wellness360. The scope of benefits that this relationship brings to our clients, our clients' patients and their staff is colossal."

PracticeOne is a provider of automation solutions to medical practices nationally. The company's suite of products includes the e-Medsys Electronic Health Record, e-Medsys comprehensive Practice Management services, and the e-Medsys Patient Access Portal, a powerful "self serve" platform for patient connectivity. PracticeOne has offices in Somerset, New Jersey; Canoga Park, CA; and Richland, WA.
