ER Urgent Care Centers Completes Technology Conversion

MIAMI, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 19, 2007 -- ER Urgent Care Centers (PINKSHEETS: ERUG) is proud to announce it has now completed a major conversion to a virtual private network system. This system will tie together all the centers and speed up the entire process in which a patient is managed. In addition the billing process will now be completely done through a paperless electronic method reducing billing time significantly. Payments from insurance companies will be made to us in a third of the time. Overall billing cost will be reduced dramatically. This technology will also give us the ability to go wireless with regard to patient charts and information and increase the privacy of our patient population. Another major step forward is that this technology will allow us to now produce our own patient ID card with photo. Each patient will be issued the photo ID card upon the completion of their visit. The attractive credit card-sized ID will be a reminder of who to visit when the need should arise. "We have made an impressive move onto the future for the growth of this organization as well as reducing costs significantly," said Jerry Miller Founder and Director. ER Urgent Care Centers continues to fulfill its commitment to set the trend in all aspects of Healthcare. We urge you to stop by our clinic and enjoy a tour of our facilities and meet the staff.
