ImageXpres Announces Surgical Checklist Board

Innovative Surgical Checklist System a Response to World Health Organization (WHO) Study Recommending Surgical Checklists for All U.S. and Worldwide Hospitals for Improved Healthcare Delivery

ROCHESTER, NY--(Marketwire - August 17, 2009) - ImageXpres Corporation (PINKSHEETS: IMJX), today announced that the Company has designed a unique, patent-pending surgical checklist system, intended for operating rooms in hospitals, clinics, and outpatient surgical facilities worldwide. The new product family is a direct market response to a recent World Health Organization (WHO) healthcare initiative that studied surgical protocols in operating rooms. The WHO study demonstrated conclusively that the use of checklists during surgery improved success rates, reduced surgical mistakes, and lowered patient mortality rates resulting from surgery complications.

ImageXpres designs and manufactures highly customized surgical checklist boards for hospitals across the U.S. The checklist boards are designed, printed, and fabricated to hospitals' requirements, and incorporate several unique features on the 24" x 36" Plexiglas boards that reside in the operating suite of the hospital. The surgical checklist boards are sold to hospitals through medical sales representatives and medical sales distributors.

ImageXpres has also designed a "digital" checklist system (patent-pending) that reinforces the utility and results of the checklist boards, providing the hospital additional verification and documentation of the surgical procedure(s), and the collaborative process facilitated by the checklist methodology employed during surgery. Already a proven success in many U.S. hospitals, the surgical checklist board will continue to be sold individually to hospitals, but will soon be accompanied by the digital surgical checklist product.

The surgical checklist boards are available now, and examples of customized checklists can be seen on ImageXpres' website: www.imagexpres.com/medicalchecklists.php.

The company plans on making further announcements disclosing additional details on the "digital" checklist product soon to be available in the U.S.
