Breakthrough on the American Market: The Canadian Solution Extenway Is Put Into Service at an Outpatient Facility of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Oct. 19, 2010) -

Editors note: A photo will be included with this press release on Marketwire's website.

Just weeks after its solution was put into service at the Jewish Rehabilitation Hospital of Laval in Quebec, Extenway Solutions Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EY) is delighted to announce that its terminals will now be used by patients at an outpatient chemotherapy center of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in Brooklyn, New York. This announcement marks the first time Extenway's technology solution has been deployed on American soil.

Improving the quality of life for hospital patients

Extenway's bedside terminals allow patients to benefit from a means of communication with staff and family (via video conference and assistance request service), a digital entertainment platform (TV, games, MP3 player, radio, and audio books), educational tools (patient teaching capsules), and a desktop work environment (Internet, email, Microsoft Office, etc.).

"Our solution allows patients to have a more positive experience during their cancer treatment", said John McAllister, President and CEO of Extenway, a company based in Baie d'Urfé in the Montreal region. "Patients sometimes have to spend weeks at a time in hospital, and feedback confirms that our technology improves their quality of life during this period."

Patients can consult the different contents by using the terminal's tactile screen or a wireless keyboard. For Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, it was very important to provide a positive and not "hospital-like" environment for patients. Extenway typical wall installation was adapted for direct mounting of the terminal onto the chairs used for chemotherapy treatment, thus creating a better patient experience.

Improving the efficiency of hospital services

The Extenway solution also helps optimize communication between the patient, clinicians and hospital staff.

Patients can also consult online menu and send their orders online. They can even adjust the light and temperature in their room – without having to move. Patients are therefore more autonomous, allowing staff extra time to concentrate on their medical needs.

Extenway will hold its next general meeting for shareholders on October 21 at 11am in the Musset room of Le Centre Sheraton Montreal, located at 1201 boulevard René-Lévesque West.
