eWellness to Sponsor APTA Physical Therapy Private Practice Section Annual Conference

CULVER CITY, CA--(Marketwired - May 3, 2016) - eWellness Healthcare Corporation (OTCQB: EWLL) is the first physical therapy telemedicine company to offer insurance reimbursable real-time distance monitored treatments. The Company is pleased to announce that it agreed to become a Level 1 sponsor of the Private Practice Section "PPS" of the American Physical Therapy Association annual conference, in order to ignite a nationwide marketing and sales effort of the Company's PHZIO platform. The 2016 PPS Annual Conference is at the Wynn Hotel from October 19th through the 22nd 2016 in Las Vegas Nevada.

eWellness has chosen to be a Level 1 Sponsor of the conference and will host various Networking Receptions. The Company will also begin advertising in September 2016 in the monthly PPS magazine "Impact" and will have a full-page ad in the conference program. The Company will also receive prominent recognition at two separate general sessions. Additionally the Company will be actively demonstrating its PHZIO platform to large numbers of multiple-clinic PT practitioners. Typically there are over 900 multi-practice PT owners that attend the PPS conference.

The APTA is an individual membership professional organization representing more than 93,000 member physical therapists (PTs), physical therapist assistants (PTAs), and students of physical therapy. APTA seeks to improve the health and quality of life of individuals in society by advancing physical therapist practice, education, and research, and by increasing the awareness and understanding of physical therapy's role in the nation's health care system.

eWellness's goal is to roll-out three new PHZIO platforms in the second quarter of 2016 include a total knee and hip replacement exercise program and a new customizable platform that allows a PT licensee to assemble unique patient exercise treatments from a play list of over 250 unique 2-4 minute exercise protocols.

Darwin Fogt, MPT, CEO of eWellness stated that, "Dan Mills, MPT who is Chairman of the Company's newly formed committee known as the eWellness Physical Therapy Clinical Advisory Board ("PTCAB") will begin outreach and the marketing of our PHZIO platforms to APTA members in June 2016, creating initial industry awareness and the onboarding of independent PT clinics using our PHZIO platform for patient treatments".
