Healthnostics Announces MedGuardian

New Web-Based Quality Improvement System for Hospitals

BETHESDA, MD -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 16, 2005 -- Healthnostics, Inc. (OTC: HNST), a clinical information system, and medical and bioscience informatics company, today announced MedGuardian, a fully Web-based patient care monitoring and risk management system for hospitals. This new modular system provides hospitals with automated data collection, reporting and analysis for improving clinical treatment and reducing risk events and medical errors.

MedGuardian has been developed using the latest Microsoft ASP.NET architecture and .NET Framework technology and uses an integrated component design model providing extensive web-based functionality. This places the MedGuardian system in the vanguard of new, highly productive, Web-based applications where previously this level of system performance was only available in client-server applications. For hospitals, system access is afforded everyone authorized through any secured Internet or Intranet connection using virtually any Web browser, anywhere.

"We are very pleased to announce this new, fully Web-based system to help hospitals improve their delivery of care and reduce their risk events. The system functionality is based on our extensive knowledge gained over ten years, and now delivered in this most important way," said Alan Grofé, president. "So much has been said about improving healthcare and reducing errors in hospitals, where little has actually been done. MedGuardian will be part of changing that."
