(OTCQB: QUTR) and SMA Informatics Partners LLC, doing business as New Health Analytics, an LLC organized under the laws of Virginia (NHA) (www.newhealthanalytics.com) today jointly announce successful completion of their Joint Marketing & Sales Agreement. The Parties intend to immediately pursue joint sale and installation of their integrated products for performance and outcomes analytics in three (3) customer sites to demonstrate the value proposition of their products individually and enhanced operating in tandem. Joint sales will be to existing and prospective customers of the Parties through joint licensing and end-user agreements. Terms of the joint sale of licensing were not disclosed but are substantial for the financial integrity and prospectively for both Quture and NHA.

"Collaboration with Quture advances our product offerings and sales opportunities," said Louis F. Rossiter, PhD, Co-Founder and Chief of Scientific Methods for NHA. "We believe the clinical performance and outcomes methods, technology, and metrics of Quture integrated with NHA methods and technology provides exponentially advanced product offerings to our customers. The commitment of NHA to its health care analytics, ongoing professional practice evaluation (OPPE), and surgical outcomes (SOIX) provide dramatic opportunities for our companies to hospitals, surgery centers, physicians and payers."

Quture recently announced completion of data collection and is now preparing to announce ROI advantages to hospitals, physicians, payers, regulators, suppliers and consumers of health care from the Clinical Trial at the University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine and Jackson Memorial Hospital with Keith A. Candiotti, MD, and InterSystems Corporation, Cambridge, MA (www.InterSystems.com). The Company is rapidly transitioning to revenue and fundamentals from such sales and marketing agreements. Improving clinical outcomes and addressing the inherent financial business intelligence analytics opportunities to customers is the strength of both Quture and NHA.

"We anticipate a series of announcements of sales of the QualOptima product and its Applications in the immediate future," said Landon Feazell, Chairman & CEO of Quture. "NHA is a remarkable opportunity to collaborate with extraordinary experts such as Dr. Rossiter and Warren Brennan with SMA Informatics. Our performance and analytics products do not compete but mutually strengthen each other's technology offerings and services. NHA's focus is traditionally in analytics and technology for claims and administrative data, which is an important adjunct to real-time clinical analytics of Quture. Their customer base combined with prospective customers of Quture and jointly put both companies on the fast track to extraordinary revenue."

"NHA and SMA Informatics are excited about joint sales and marketing of NHA's Readmissions Evaluator Medicare Assessment and Payment Impact Analysis (which converts ICD-9 codes to ICD-10 codes) with Quture's QualOptima Performance and Peer Review Application," said Warren Brennan, MBA. "We are mutually exploring licensing other technologies and collaborating in other existing technologies and the development of joint technologies, especially with surgical outcomes as an existing NHA product. I have worked with Landon Feazell and his companies previously, and we are enthusiastic about our opportunities to jointly market and sell our products and services again, not to mention new technology jointly."

Dr. Rossiter is joining the faculty of the National Healthcare Performance and Outcomes Summit in Washington, D.C., September 16-18, 2013 (http://www.performanceanalyticssummit.com). Feazell is also the Co-Chairman of the Summit, and Quture is a founding sponsor.
