MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 5, 2005) - MediSolution Ltd. (TSX:MSH), a leading Canadian healthcare and public sector software and services company, today announced the acceleration of its office consolidation plan as well as additional savings resulting from increased efficiencies and organizational focus.

The Company has centralized multiple product development and support teams within the Toronto, Montreal and Quebec City offices with the completion of its office consolidation plan. In recent months, the company has also introduced new processes and initiatives that will deliver additional savings and efficiencies.

MediSolution Ltd. is sharpening its strategic focus in Resource Management with an increased investment in the development of an integrated Human Capital Management (HCM) suite.
