Etransmedia Technology, Inc. and Misys Healthcare Systems Align to Provide Electronic Medical Records Solution to Medical Practices

ALBANY, NY and RALEIGH, NC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 13, 2006 -- Etransmedia Technology, Inc. and Misys Healthcare Systems, a market leader in healthcare IT, today announced a relationship that enables more physician practices to utilize electronic medical records (EMR). Etransmedia is expanding its organization and product portfolio to support the expected growth.

Through the collaboration, Etransmedia -- a leading provider of Revenue Cycle Management and Medical Records Management -- is adding Misys Healthcare Systems' EMR and practice management solutions to the suite it offers to healthcare practices. In addition to the products, Etransmedia will provide front-level support and training for the application, as well as a variety of physician-specific technical support and application enhancement services.

"As we continue to meet the service requirements of our clients, this expansion of our relationship with Misys will continue to keep Etransmedia on the leading edge of delivering timely, state-of-the-art solutions to the medical community," said Vikram Agrawal, CEO of Etransmedia. "Misys EMR® and paperless medical billing and practice management are natural extensions of our current services; we are already the leader in integrating with a variety of EMR and practice management systems. This partnership also furthers our application software, implementation and support expertise."

"The information technology capabilities required to adopt, implement and maintain an EMR solution can sometimes be a barrier for smaller medical practices," said Scott Sanner, vice president of sales and implementation for Misys Healthcare Systems. "Through our relationship with Etransmedia, we know they not only have the infrastructure and experience to service this market, but they understand Misys products. We're excited to work with them as they take Misys EMR out to their practices."

Misys EMR is a flexible EMR system that expedites record keeping processes and enables physicians to retrieve and input patient data anywhere, anytime, from a PC or wireless device. The modularly designed product -- which is part of the Misys Optimum™ family of solutions -- provides electronic capabilities for routine tasks related to clinical data (such as transcription, imaging, orders management, messaging and prescription writing), as well as a wireless point-of-care solution for physicians in the examination room.
