Prince Theodore Group of Pharmacies Adopts ZoomMed's ZRx Prescriber

MONTREAL, CANADA--(Marketwire - June 9, 2009) - ZoomMed (TSX VENTURE:ZMD) - developer of the "ZRx Prescriber" signed an Agreement with "Prince Theodore Group of Pharmacies" which operates over 20 pharmacy store locations across Ontario, for the non-exclusive rights to scan and receive prescription information, generated by physicians using the "ZRx Prescriber".

"This agreement between ZoomMed and Prince Theodore Group aims to integrate the ZRx Prescriber solution to all the Prince Theodore Group dispensary application and launch the connection between the growing number of doctors (close to 3,000 in Canada) who have chosen ZoomMed's ZRx Prescriber ", stated Mr. Yves Marmet, President and Chief Executive Officer of ZoomMed Inc. " It is estimated that as many as 75 percent of U.S. doctors will be writing electronic prescriptions within five years, thanks to new federal spending to encourage e-prescribing. The economic stimulus bill, signed by President Barack Obama in February 2009, included about $19 billion to promote the use of healthcare information technology, including e-prescribing. We believe that Canada will follow the same trend" added Mr. Marmet.

"The mission of the Prince Theodore Group of Pharmacies is to not only supply patients with their needed medicine, but to also provide advice, health education and any needed services to support and enhance their wellbeing. Our pharmacists take extreme care to evaluate every patient's overall treatment regimen to prevent the possibility of dangerous drug interactions", said Mr. Magdy Nashat, President of Prince Theodore Group of Pharmacies. "We strongly believe that ZoomMed's ZRx Prescriber will constitute an outstanding tool which will enhance the wellness of our patients", concluded Mr. Nashat.
