Net Medical to Offer Telemedicine Stroke Program to Rural Hospitals

Company Installing First Integration of CEREBROS™ in Arizona

ALBUQUERQUE, NM--(Marketwired - Jul 28, 2015) - Net Medical Xpress Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB: NMXS), a leader in the telemedicine field, announced today the introduction of a new stroke program for rural hospitals. The company is installing its first integration of the CEREBROS™ stroke management program from Corazon at an Arizona hospital.

CEREBROS™ has a web-based interface that allows staff to input, import, track, monitor, discharge and report on a stroke patient to ensure appropriate care is delivered in a timely manner.

Corazon CEO, Karen Hartman, said, "The launch of this exciting program follows the recently launched Acute Stroke Ready Hospital designation (ASRH) by The Joint Commission. This certification targets rural hospitals that may not have the resources necessary to admit and care for stroke patients. Given that today, half of the U.S. population lives in excess of 60 miles from a primary stroke center, these rural providers are uniquely positioned to provide crucial initial stabilization and treatment for these patients."

Dick Govatski, CEO, Net Medical said, "Our telemedicine system is the new enabler of real time stroke care for rural hospitals. We provide on a 24/7 basis qualified medical professionals trained in stroke care to perform rapid diagnostic testing using the CEREBROS™ system. Our physicians, who are trained in administering intravenous clot-busting medication to eligible patients, also can provide care guidance to general physicians in rural hospitals. Our advanced telemedicine technology makes it possible for rural hospitals that don't have full time stroke providers to fulfill the documentation and clinical functions necessary to qualify for the certification. This is another important example of how telemedicine from Net Medical Xpress is helping to improve health care while reducing costs for the providers."

CEREBROS™ is Corazon's Stroke Patient Management and Navigation System, the first of its kind. It is changing the way hospitals deliver care to stroke patients -- from arrival and critical early timeframes through discharge. CEREBROS™ uses best-practice quality care standards as a driver to ensure the right care is delivered at the right time to the right patient. 24/7/365. CEREBROS™ is built to support certification or accreditation through any of the national organizations including The Joint Commission (TJC), Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program (HFAP) and Det Norske Veritas (DNV) and is able to integrate information into the Get With the Guidelines (GWTG) stroke data registry.
