Quture/TCLN Announces Successful Migration of Peer Review Product Onto InterSystems Platform

Company in Preparation for Commercial Sales of Peer Review Application of QualOptima System With Market Potential Exceeding $500 Million Annually

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - Apr 4, 2012) - Quture International, Inc. (OTCQB: TCLN) (PINKSHEETS: TCLN) and its operations subsidiary Quture, Inc. ("Quture") announce migration of the Company's existing software product to perform peer review of clinical performance in hospitals from Microsoft to the InterSystems platform. Quture previewed this first transition to its new QualOptima System at the Partner Pavilion of the InterSystems Global Summit. The peer review application is an asset from Quture's recent merger and is being readied for commercial sales of this existing product on the more powerful InterSystems technology. The inherent limitations of peer review for hospitals will be overcome through the electronic performance measurement technology proven at Demonstration Sites.

The new peer review application in QualOptima will continue to advance peer review from anecdotal, unstructured and subjective to electronic, structured, and evidenced-based explicit analytics. The product will be introduced into a market for the peer review application, next to be enhanced with proctoring to complete the application, with a market potential estimated in excess of $500,000,000 in the United States alone.

"The prospects for Quture to change the peer review processes to enhance clinical performance and achieve optimal clinical outcomes was one of my primary motivations to join the Company," said Richard Fantozzi, M.D., CEO and Co-Chairman of Quture. "During my term with the medical board in California, we dealt frequently with peer review issues and had the opportunity to see the development of the Lumetra Report. When the results of that study were published, they confirmed my concern that peer review is an essential process, but is often poorly performed and under reported. We believe that there are other health communities that see the essential value of using the performance enhancement tool."

"Quture is poised to commercially market a truly revolutionary product to enhance performance measurement and to achieve what is possible to improve both healthcare delivery and payment systems internationally," he added.

The QualOptima System peer review application is the first commercial product release of Quture, soon to be enhanced with electronic proctoring and performance measurement following the Demonstration Projects at the University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine, Jackson Memorial Hospital, under the leadership of Keith Candiotti, M.D., and at Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center, under the leadership of Judith Daugherty, R.N., Ph.D.

"My colleagues and I have worked for over 35 years and I have invested over $3 million to accomplish this new peer review application," said Landon Feazell, Chairman & CEO of Quture International, Inc. "It is truly remarkable that years of development of intellectual property and clinical content are now converging on a remarkable technology platform to derive clinical knowledge solutions. We can now replace outdated manual review yielding only anecdotal subjective data with limited impact on health care processes. Dr. Janice Ophoven, Chief Medical Officer of Quture and her team have worked with us throughout the years to develop these assets to transition to evidence-based, structured implicit review. I am proud and excited to finally begin to announce our accomplishments with this new technology and science of healthcare quality and patient safety."
