VisualMED Selected to Participate in Prestigious Electronic Health Record Workshop

VisualONCOLOGY Product to Be Demonstrated at American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting

MONTREAL--(Marketwire - May 5, 2008) - VisualMED Clinical Solutions Corp. (the "Company") (OTCBB: VMCS) (FRANKFURT: VA6) announces its selection as a participant in the upcoming Oncology EHR Workshop being presented as part of the 2008 meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) in Chicago, May 30 - June 3. Twenty-five vendors were invited to the pre-selection evaluation, of whom ten were selected to present. Vendors were required to meet a number of rigorous criteria appropriate to oncology electronic patient records and prescriptions. Such records are used by health care providers to manage cancer patient care over timeframes ranging from months to years. Of note, VisualMED is the only "new" vendor added to the list of last year's participants. It is anticipated that each vendor will do between 50 and 100 presentations over the course of the 3-day event, making this event an extremely time- and cost-efficient marketing and sales opportunity.

Last year, VisualMED attended ASCO as a vendor only, rather than as an EHR workshop participant. The company had a product and was looking for a client. In the interim, the VisualONCOLOGY product began to elicit interest in the oncology community, and this year, the system is live and in implementation at two university-affiliated Oncology Centers in Montreal, with a third contract recently signed -- all of this activity initiated within just the past 8 months. As well, VisualMED is currently in discussion with a number of oncologists and several companies involved in the management and design of clinical investigation trials who have expressed interest in the use of VisualMED's unique interface to support both patient care documentation and clinical trial data collection concurrently.

Mr. Barry Scharf, VP, Client Services for VisualMED, commented, "The EHR workshop is a tremendous opportunity for VisualMED to demonstrate its flagship products to oncologists and oncology centers looking for an alternative to existing electronic documentation. Our VisualONCOLOGY EHR and prescription system reflects oncology clinical workflow to an extent unavailable in any other competing product."

Apart from ASCO, VisualMED is in discussion with a number of health care sites in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Tunisia regarding either VisualONCOLOGY or the VisualMED Clinical Information System itself, an enterprise-wide solution integrating multidisciplinary care documentation with electronic prescriptions, decision support and results reporting.
