Veteran Government Contractors to Bring MedeFile's Advanced Internet-Enabled Personal Health Record Solution to U.S. Federal Agencies

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - May 19, 2011) - MedeFile International, Inc. (OTCQB: MDFI) (PINKSHEETS: MDFI), a leader in Internet-enabled Personal Health Record (iPHR) management solutions, today announced that it has granted exclusive rights to government contracting firm ADAR, Incorporated and its principals, Debbie and Keith Rieger, to market the Company's advanced iPHR solution to U.S. federal departments and agencies, including the Veterans Administration, Department of Defense, Health and Human Services, and Department of Homeland Security. The Riegers have also been awarded non-exclusive rights to market the MedeFile system to companies, major medical institutions and other entities outside of the traditional government contracting space.

"We first became familiar with MedeFile when Keith and I were actively seeking a personal health record solution to better manage our own healthcare and that of our parents," stated Debbie Rieger. "After evaluating several PHRs, we determined that the MedeFile system was far more feature-rich, easy to use and service-oriented than any other solution available on the market. However, it wasn't until we actually began to engage the MedeFile system in our everyday lives that we understood how powerful and consumer intuitive it really is. We then recognized that it could prove to be the turnkey solution capable of effectively and readily addressing the federal government's highly publicized objective of empowering every American with an electronic personal health record. Working in tandem with MedeFile, we knew we could play a meaningful role in helping to make that happen."

For nearly three decades, Debbie Rieger has served as a leading federal government contractor, certified in Government Contracts and Procurement by the University of Virginia. In 1996, she founded and led as its President and CEO a highly respected government contracting company which reached annual revenues of over $20 million prior to its sale in 2010. In late 2010, she partnered with her husband Keith Rieger to form ADAR, Incorporated.

Over 22 years, Keith Rieger has earned distinction as an experienced business development executive, working with both large and small companies in the telecommunications and telemedicine industries. During his career, he has helped to secure his clients and past employers numerous multi-million dollar contracts with a wide range of U.S. federal departments and agencies. Working together at ADAR, the husband/wife team is now focused on leveraging their combined expertise, industry influence and proven capabilities to assist companies, such as MedeFile, to successfully penetrate and navigate the complex federal contracting sector.

"As a small company, we knew we needed to team with the right industry professionals if we were to succeed in establishing the federal government as a meaningful sales channel for MedeFile," noted Kevin Hauser, Chairman, President and CEO of MedeFile. "It has quickly become apparent that we have found precisely the right partners in Debbie and Keith; and we couldn't be more excited to be working with them. Having already lined up several MedeFile demonstrations for us with procurement officials at various federal agencies, they have wasted little time in winning MedeFile high profile attention in the right government circles."
