ZoomMed Exhibiting its ZRx Prescriber at HIMSS 2011

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Feb. 9, 2011) - ZoomMed Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ZMD). ZoomMed is pleased to announce it will be exhibiting its ZRx electronic prescriber at the 2011 Annual Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS 2011) Conference & Exhibition, Booth #1881, which will be held from February, 20th to the 24th, 2011, in Orlando, Florida. Some 29,000 healthcare industry professionals and 900 exhibitors are expected to attend and discuss cutting-edge technology and innovative healthcare solutions designed to improve patient care.

ZoomMed will be using this industry gathering to pursue discussions with strategic partners and potential distributors that have shown great interest in integrating ZRx in their own portfolio of Healthcare solutions for U.S. medical clinics.

Since obtaining its Suresripts® certification on November 2010, ZoomMed has been actively pursuing strategic business opportunities with its wholly owned subsidiary ZoomMed USA.

"This certification gave us full access to the huge U.S. market of electronic prescriptions, which is ten times larger than the Canadian market," said Yves Marmet, President and CEO of ZoomMed. "Moreover, this is a fast growing market, as a result of U.S. government recent legislations "HITECH act » , providing within Medicare, incentive programs to economically stimulate physicians to electronically transmit prescriptions, but also, as of 2012, penalize those who are delaying to do so. So our inception in the US market could not have come at a better time."

He added: "the response to our ZRx electronic prescriber has been extremely positive, as much from medical clinics and physicians themselves and from suppliers of Electronic Medical Record (EMR) who want to integrate the ZRx Prescriber in their overall solution and therefore becoming licensed distributors. We were convinced that the American market would be impressed by our prescriber. In my opinion, no other prescriber offers such speed (script completed in 15 seconds), user friendliness and full mobility. I am quite confident that we will come back from Orlando, with a good idea of who we will be partnering with to rapidly play a significant role in the American healthcare industry."
