PASHealth Breaks New Ground With a Move to New, One of a Kind, Secure Long Island Data Center

HAUPPAUGE, NY--(Marketwire - July 10, 2008) - Patient Access Solutions, Inc. (OTCBB: PASO), a leading provider of healthcare/financial processing solutions for the healthcare, homecare and dental industries, announced today that they recently relocated their new state of the art servers, along with their new infrastructure, to a much larger collocated facility to handle the current growth they are experiencing.

Their new servers will be collocated with Mithril Technology (Mithril) at the Long Island Data and Recovery Center (LIDARC). Company management chose the LIDARC location for convenience, redundant technical sophistication, Empire Zone designation, and access to multiple bandwidth providers. Management believes that no other facility on Long Island can match LIDARC for the redundancy of the facilities or carrier services available. Mithril was chosen for its infrastructure and security expertise, comprehensive enterprise class managed services offerings, and dedication to excellent customer service.

According to Bruce Weitzberg, CEO/President of Patient Access Solutions, "I believe the LIDARC Center, will provide the security, data transfer, redundancy and back up of healthcare provider information that we need to support our client base."

According to Jason Aptekar, President/CTO of Mithril Technology, "Patient Access Solutions is taking advantage of the powerful combination of LIDARC infrastructure and Mithril services. They are at the forefront of a true enterprise class infrastructure, connectivity, and service. With Mithril Professional and Managed Services, Patient Access Solutions has access to the skills, technology and experience it needs for today and tomorrow."

About LIDARC (www.lidarc.com)

The LI Data and Recovery Center is a state of the art 200,000+ sq ft building, with heavy floor loads and heavy duty electrical service. The building is in a NYS Empire Zone, which allows tenants to qualify for State Tax Credits, incentives and discounted Electrical Power. (See Empire Zone Information found at http://www.tax.state.ny.us/sbc/empire_zone.htm) The building has elected to be carrier neutral and built a dedicated carrier meet-me-room to facilitate multi-carrier presence. There are presently 3 bandwidth providers in the building and two additional providers have committed to bring fiber into the building. Two of these five (OCG and Keyspan Communications) have Manhattan Bypass capabilities. LIDARC has also been designed to provide 99.999% monthly uptime and N+1 redundancy for power and cooling. N+1 means that LIDARC has what it needs, and an extra. For example, a room that will need 40 tons of air conditioning and 5 seconds of Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) to cut-over to generators when it is full of equipment has been built, in advance, with 90 tons of air conditioning and 6 minutes of UPS! This demonstrates not just the level of redundancy and reliability to which the building is being designed and built, but significantly, the commitment of the building owners to do it right knowing that the business community will recognize the value and come to LIDARC.
