For more detailed information relating to the Company's yearend results, please refer to the financial statements included with this press release and the 10-K that was filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission yesterday, April 16, 2012.

Commenting on the results, Kevin Hauser, President and CEO of MedeFile, noted, "Last year proved to be a defining year for MedeFile in numerous ways. Mid-year, we determined that our strategy to drive consumer adoption of the MedeFile iPHR solution through telemarketing campaigns and televised infomercials were less than optimal methods of accelerating individual membership growth, and the cost per subscriber acquisition was high -- particularly when compared to the margins we can realize through our wholesale channels."

"Consequently, we chose to adopt a more tactical approach to our global marketing efforts, electing to focus solely on pursuing major wholesale opportunities with large medical practice groups and institutions, insurance companies, trade unions, affinity groups and other notable organizations capable of enrolling thousands of MedeFile subscribers onto our iPHR platform simultaneously. Although this route to success has required significant time, patience and certain enhancements to our day-to-day systems of operation on our part, our efforts over the past six to eight months have begun to yield tangible results -- particularly over the past several weeks," Hauser said.

During the month of March, MedeFile announced the commencement of a 90-day pilot program with Promise Healthcare, a leading national long-term acute hospital company employing nearly 3,000 people -- all of whom MedeFile anticipates will enroll as MedeFile subscribers, presuming a successful pilot. In addition, the Company reported that it has formed a new joint venture named MedeFile Iberia, S.L., which will be based in Madrid. The joint venture marks MedeFile's first major international expansion initiative which will focus on marketing and distributing the Company's iPHR solution to consumers, healthcare institutions, government agencies and insurance companies in Spain. MedeFile also announced that it has welcomed Medical Specialists of the Palm Beaches to its Quality of Care Program, providing for MSPB's 75+ physicians to encourage their universal base of more than 200,000 patients to subscribe to MedeFile.

"These recent positive developments are an indication that our decision to concentrate on wholesale opportunities has been the right one," stated Hauser. "Moving forward, we are in discussions and negotiations with numerous other companies and organizations of like size and scope as those we've already detailed; and, thanks to impressive cost-saving data being released by several leading U.S. corporations that have integrated custom PHRs into their employee benefits platforms, MedeFile has been responding to an increasing number of Requests for Proposals from large, self-insured employers seeking to do the same."

In closing, Hauser stated, "Although the journey, thus far, has been fraught with challenges and hurdles to success, our team remains absolutely dedicated to and intent on achieving our mission to establish MedeFile as the world's preferred Personal Health Record management solution."
