Metiscan Signs LOI With OccuCare Medical Centers, P.A. to Develop Practice Management Software System for Pain Management Clinics

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - January 14, 2010) - Metiscan, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: MTIZ) announced today that it has signed a letter of intent (LOI) with OccuCare Medical Centers, P.A. , a Texas-based pain management group, to develop a practice management software system designed specifically for the needs of pain management clinics nationwide. The practice management system will be specifically designed to optimize workflow processes and billing and collections needs for pain management clinics. The LOI sets forth certain agreements and understandings establishing a general outline of terms that may be formalized in separate, definitive documents.

"This is a great opportunity for Metiscan to develop a scalable, Internet-based practice management system that will meet the needs of pain management clinics nationwide," commented Bryan A. Scott, President & CEO of Metiscan. "We anticipate that our current discussions may yield Metiscan with the exclusive right for at least 5 years to use, reproduce, sublicense and distribute the new software system."

Mr. Scott continued, "We believe pain management facilities have very limited options when selecting a practice management system that is designed specifically for their workflow needs. Collaborating with this group of pain management experts while leveraging our experience and knowledge of Healthcare IT provides us with the opportunity to build an outstanding product that will meet the market's need. Our subsidiary, FirstView EHR, will be essential in managing and servicing this new software for pain clinic customers' needs."
