Healthscreen's CallerMD Ranks 1st in Profit Hot 50s Emerging Growth Companies

The 8th annual HOT 50 is the definitive ranking of Canada's Emerging Growth Companies

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 18, 2007) - Healthscreen Solutions Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MDU) ("Healthscreen" or the "Company") a premier supplier of electronic medical record (EMR) software and practice enhancing services, is honored that its CallerMD business has placed 1st in the 8th annual PROFIT HOT 50 ranking of Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies by PROFIT: Your Guide to Business Success. The PROFIT HOT 50 is the definitive ranking of Canada's Emerging Growth Companies. Published in the October issue of PROFIT magazine and online at PROFITguide.com, the PROFIT HOT 50 ranks young firms by two-year revenue growth.

Healthscreen's acquisition of Medical Telecom in March 2007, brought in a suite of products, including CallerMD, which has achieved a two-year growth rate of over 5,000%. While this rapid growth was achieved primarily in Ontario, Healthscreen is now working to replicate this success in other Canadian provinces. As part of its growth strategy, Healthscreen continues to seek suitable acquisition targets, with complementary products and established customer bases.

Profit Hot 50 also referred to Healthscreen's CallerMD business as "Canada's hottest start-up".

"To be recognized by a publication with Profit's track record of identifying high-growth emerging companies is a tremendous achievement for Healthscreen's management team, employees and investors," said Justin Belobaba, President and CEO of Healthscreen. "However, I believe that what we have achieved thus far addresses only a small portion of Healthscreen's potential, which will begin to materialize as Healthscreen adds new products and services and expands into new markets."
