Cardiac Network Inc. Accelerates Insurance Credentialing Initiatives With the Hiring of MRM Medical Credentialing Services Inc.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - September 14, 2007) - Cardiac Network Inc. (PINKSHEETS: CNWI) today announced that they are accelerating its insurance credentialing initiatives with the hire of MRM Medical Credentialing Services Inc.

MRM, established in 2002, is a Miami, Florida-based company, which services clients ranging from Doctors and Specialists to diagnostic facilities, clinics and pharmacies. The company, which specializes in covering Florida, New York, Texas, and California, also credentials with major state and national health plans and specializes in negotiating the highest reimbursement rates available for its clients.

The company utilizes a highly effective three-step plan that allows its experienced credentialing staff to work with its National Networking Program to achieve results for its customers. Because of MRM's expertise they can obtain contracts when others cannot, and also eliminate a lot of the red tape, which normally occurs. By getting it right the first time, Cardiac Network will maximize its time accordingly. In the past, MRM has used this three tiered approach to obtain HMO and PPO contracts with some of the largest insurance providers in the country including, Amerigroup, Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, United, Workers Compensation and many others.

"MRM's credentialing services will complement Cardiac Network's sales initiatives and will further accelerate the marketing of our products to the medical community," stated Mr. Zev Helfer, President and CEO of Cardiac Network Inc.

"The hire of a credentialing company allows us access to MRM's network program, that includes the who's who of insurance companies and their millions of customers. This is a strategic step that will complement Cardiac Network's sales initiatives," added Mr. Helfer.

"We are pleased that Cardiac Network has chosen MRM for their medical credentialing needs. We are committed to providing the consulting services that will help Cardiac Network increase the number of payer sources and then proceed to negotiate the highest reimbursement rate possible," stated Mr. Edward B. Kostishion, Vice President of Sales, of MRM Medical Credentialing Services Inc.

Cardiovascular disease and coronary heart disease are widespread, afflicting over 70 million people. Heart attacks are the single biggest killer in the United States alone. Each year, about 1.1 million Americans suffer a heart attack. About 460,000 of those heart attacks are fatal. Those figures could change dramatically if those people got to a hospital as fast as possible when a heart attack first happened.
