ImageXpres Announces Contract With Texas Health Resource Group

Custom Surg-i-Scan™ Safety Checklist Boards for Multiple Departments

ROCHESTER, NY--(Marketwire - November 9, 2010) -  ImageXpres Corporation (PINKSHEETS: IMJX) today announced it has landed contracts for creating, manufacturing and selling its Surg-i-Scan™ Surgical Safety Checklist sliderboards for several hospital groups. Among these is the Texas Health Resource Group, one of the largest faith-based, nonprofit health care delivery systems in the United States and the largest in North Texas in terms of patients served.

ImageXpres has shipped custom surgical safety checklist boards to three of their fourteen member hospitals and affiliates, and is now working closely with hospital staff on completing custom designs, manufacturing and supporting sales of boards in a majority of their OR, Labor & Delivery, Cath Labs and other departments. 

The surgical safety checklist initiative, initially promoted by the World Health Organization as a protocol for saving lives and reducing surgical errors, has been gaining major acceptance around the US. Several states, like Texas, and South Carolina, which has adopted the use of surgical safety checklists in over 80% of its hospitals, are dedicated to this patient safety initiative. The growth of this movement, aimed at decreasing patient accidents or death related incidents, by almost 30%, has been steadily increasing over the last few years, according to Dr. Atul Gawande, author of "The Checklist Manifesto," and principle proponent of the value of using a surgical safety checklist protocol system.

John Zankowski, ImageXpres President, CEO, states, "ImageXpres hopes to increase its Surg-i-Scan™ Safety Checklist sliderboard sales by 30-40% each quarter over the next two years. A target of 5,000 boards, or approximately $2,000,000 in Surg-i-Scan™ Safety Checklist boards and software sales for the 2011 year is a moderate estimate, but one we intend to exceed."

"ImageXpres has also augmented its Surg-i-Scan™ Surgical Safety Checklist board sales with a digital version for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, and is now developing an Android version. The Company is currently testing a new, digital whiteboard annotation device that 'digitizes' all of the surgical safety checklist data to a customized database, designed by ImageXpres for the client hospital. The Company intends to announce this system, along with another "state of the art" medical product in the coming months. This will round out our medical product portfolio and allow us to engage several major distributors to help increase sales."
