MedLink Partners With LifePoint Informatics to Provide Lab Sponsored MedLink EHR for Referring Physician Practices

ISLANDIA, NY--(Marketwire - March 14, 2008) - MedLink International, Inc. (OTCBB: MLKNA) announced today that it has partnered with LifePoint Informatics, a leading systems provider of web-based order entry and results reporting solutions to labs nation-wide, to provide a sponsored MedLink EHR offering for laboratories. LifePoint and MedLink have completed the integration of LifePoint's LabTest system within the MedLink Total Office EHR and are in the process of testing a Beta version. Thereafter, Labs will be able to offer their referring Physicians their own Lab sponsored EMR and EHR enabled practice management system.

Jack Redding, President of LifePoint, stated, "The purchase of EHR systems have been prohibitively expensive for both physicians and the labs who are willing to subsidize the costs for their referring Physicians. The MedLink EHR, with its ease of use, complete functionality and more importantly affordable pricing, finally presents the lab community a solution that can gain penetration and begin to create the standard we all talk so much about."

Ray Vuono, President of MedLink International, further stated, "Partnering with LifePoint, allows MedLink users to gain real-time access to lab result data from their Laboratories, which will further the incentives of the adoption of EMR and EHR technology and reduce costs to the physicians. By giving physicians options for services like lab facilities, physicians can help support local hospitals that are starving for the added revenue by allowing them to compete against the national lab service companies."
