Healthscreen Signs Strategic Marketing Alliance with Toshiba of Canada Limited

ST. CATHARINES, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - March 21, 2006) - Healthscreen Solutions Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MDU), a premier supplier of Electronic Health Records (EHR), is pleased to announce the signing of a strategic marketing alliance to develop the Healthcare Partnership Program (HPP) with Toshiba of Canada Limited, Information Systems Group.

The HPP will ensure that Healthscreen physician clinics have access to Toshiba's award-winning Tablet PCs and notebook computers. Toshiba's Tablet PCs and notebook PCs enable Healthscreen clinics to extend the implementation of its EHR systems by allowing physicians to access and update electronic patient records during examinations.

The relationship also creates joint marketing opportunities for both companies with Healthscreen's physician clinics and names Toshiba the preferred Tablet PC and notebook PC vendor for all clients. Healthscreen will be provided with a Tablet PC loaner program and will leverage Toshiba's technology leadership for cross marketing purposes with its website, trade shows, marketing communications collateral and cross referral of sales leads and accounts.

"This alliance is a key component of our marketing strategy," said Wes Stonos, Healthscreen's Vice President of Sales. "Toshiba's leadership in the mobile computing marketplace and their commitment to advancing healthcare coupled with Healthscreen's EHR software presents a "best of breed" turn-key solution that addresses a physician's need to access patient information anytime, anywhere."

"Tablet PCs and notebook PCs are essential to realizing the full benefits of electronic medical environments," stated Ron Wilson, Marketing Manager, Public Sector & SMB, Toshiba of Canada Limited, Information Systems Group. "Healthscreen's solution is a strong fit with Toshiba's Tablet PCs enabling the medical professional to work in a paperless office, 24/7. We're confident that this relationship will help change the way medical clinics operate by realizing greater efficiencies."

Mobile computing is an integral part of the physicians' daily routine. Whether in their office, at the hospital or around the world, real time access to patient information enhances a physician's ability to provide superior patient care. The HPP enables Healthscreen and Toshiba to jointly create value for Healthscreen's end user by addressing these data access requirements with ease and simplicity.
