Apollo: Pathology PACS Pioneer Introduces New Name

Pathology PACS Provides Imaging and Workflow Benefits to Laboratories

FALLS CHURCH, VA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 7, 2007 -- Apollo PACS Inc., formerly Apollo Telemedicine, Inc., today announced its new name and incorporation. At the heart of Apollo's solutions is PathPACS® (Pathology Picture Archiving & Communications Solution). Apollo's PathPACS® integrates pathology imaging into the electronic patient record and enables surgeons, dermatologists, and other specialists to connect to the laboratory to view results and images.

Apollo PathPACS® increases referring physician satisfaction and improves pathology case workflow and throughput. The solution allows laboratory personnel to focus time and energy on growing their business and generating more revenue for both hospitals and private practices. The net result enables pathologists to offer better service at lower cost to the patient and hospital. Numerous hospitals and imaging centers have incorporated PACS into radiology with marked success; pathology departments are rapidly implementing Apollo PathPACS® to achieve the same results.

"Now our name appropriately reflects the value that we deliver to our customers and the other healthcare professionals serviced by our customers," said Mark Newburger, Apollo founder and CEO. "And while our name has changed -- our vision and commitment to improving laboratory workflow remains the same. We believe the future of laboratory efficiency for pathologists stems from Apollo's Pathology Picture Archiving and Communications Solution."

Apollo's new name preserves the high brand awareness built over its 14-year history. It balances the past with the future, and signals to customers that Apollo has moved forward with the progressing improvements in healthcare practice.

Apollo's solution revolutionizes the laboratory workflow by consolidating pathology resources throughout the enterprise, streamlining the imaging process, and optimizing pathology case workflow for lab personnel. PathPACS® addresses the unique archiving and storage needs of the pathologist's laboratory and addresses all issues of patient safety for imaging and secure access while simultaneously increasing the overall efficiency in pathology workflow.

Apollo has always adapted to the changing needs and climate of the health technology industry. And, while Apollo Telemedicine, Inc officially becomes Apollo PACS, Inc. today, it retains the widely recognized Apollo logo and continues its commitment to excellent support for all customers.

Apollo PACS, Inc., a privately held company, incorporated in Delaware and headquartered in Falls Church, VA, has developed patented imaging solutions for over a decade. Apollo provides end-to-end laboratory image process solutions to manage diagnostic case workflow.
