AUSTIN, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 29, 2005 -- SecureCARE Technologies, Inc. (OTC BB: SCUI), a leading Internet-based document exchange and e-signature solution company for the healthcare industry, will feature its application at the southern regional meeting of the American Medical Group Association (AMGA) in Greensboro, North Carolina, on September 30 at the Greensboro Downtown Marriott from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The solution helps lead healthcare industry in becoming paperless and enables physicians to capture significant revenues for otherwise unbilled home health services.

Representatives from several key medical groups in the southern region of the U.S. will be in attendance including high-level executives and medical officers from Boice-Willis Clinic, P.A., Carolinas Physicians Network, Lebauer Healthcare, P.A., Piedmont Medical Clinic, Piedmont Surgical Clinic and State of Franklin Healthcare Associates, PLLC, from Tennessee, among others. These attendees are key decision-makers in terms of adopting leading technology solutions.

SecureCARE provided an educational grant to support AMGA as the host of the meeting. The featured speaker is Val J. Halamandaris, President of the National Association for Home Care, who will talk about the need for collaboration between homecare organizations and medical groups that will enable physicians to continue to provide the highest quality care for their patients in settings most conducive to treatment and healing as well as new technology solutions. In addition, Chris Ojeih, MD, MPH, of the University of Texas-Houston will describe how SecureCARE.net helped his practice generate revenue and reduce administrative costs. Kelly C. Loya, CPC, CPhT, a senior coding consultant at Carolina Physicians Network, will also share strategies that helped the group capture over half a million dollars in unbilled services.

Dennis J. Nasto, senior vice president of sales and marketing for SecureCARE, said, "We are excited by the show of interest in this event. Profitability and productivity are hot topics for physician groups. The government is calling on doctors to implement technology that will produce greater efficiency in their practices. SecureCARE is proud to be a leader in terms of bringing the paperless electronic exchange of information from outside the physician practice with the ability to also store it into their electronic medical record (EMR) system without the use of paper, scanners or imports."

The AMGA represents approximately 260 of the nation's largest, most prominent medical groups and 70,000 physicians. The association takes a leadership stance toward technology adoption among physicians. SecureCARE Technologies is an AMGA executive corporate partner, which means SecureCARE has been designated as the association's value-added service provider of electronic document exchange technology for its membership. A typical AMGA group practice using SecureCARE's solution, SecureCARE.net, may capture as much as $1 million to $2 million in lost Medicare charges or about $20,000 per physician who refers to home health service providers.
