Industry Leader in Healthcare Revenue Cycle Management Processes 750 Millionth Healthcare Transaction -- Adds to Executive Management Team

Vice Presidents of Marketing and Sales Added to Continue Company's Substantial Year-Over-Year Growth

LOUISVILLE, KY--(Marketwire - October 24, 2010) -  ZirMed®, a leading national provider of revenue cycle management solutions, today announced several significant company milestones.

This month, ZirMed processed its 750 millionth healthcare transaction. The company currently processes over 20 million monthly transactions that include patient payments, claims, remittances and eligibility verifications.

"We now process as many transactions in a month as we did in all of 2004," said Jerry Merritt, president and chief executive officer of ZirMed Inc. "Our substantial organic growth is self-funded, not inflated by acquisitions. We have achieved growth through our partner relationships and integration of our solution into practice management and EMR systems."

Over the last five years, ZirMed's revenue has grown at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 39%.

To help manage and accelerate ZirMed's growth, the company recently added two new senior executives.

Kevin Weinstein joins ZirMed as Vice President of Marketing and will oversee industry relations, messaging and new opportunity generation as well as managing the company's brand. He was previously Vice President of Marketing and Sales Operations at Allscripts. Mr. Weinstein also worked as a management consultant with Oliver Wyman and earlier oversaw the investment process for an early stage venture capital fund. Mr. Weinstein earned a Master of Business Administration from Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management and a Bachelor of Arts in English from Colgate University.

Kraig Brown joins ZirMed as the Vice President of Sales and will lead sales execution for the company. Mr. Brown comes to the company from PGi, a web, video conferencing and document delivery company, where he was Senior Vice President of Sales. While at PGi, Mr. Brown oversaw inside and web based sales, building significant industry partner relationships with companies such as Cisco Webex, Adobe, and Microsoft. Prior to joining PGi, Mr. Brown was Senior Vice President of Sales at Xpediate Consulting, a high-growth private company focused on healthcare compliance. Kraig Brown received his Bachelor of Science in Education at the University of Georgia and his Master of Arts at David Lipscomb University.
