ZoomMed Rapidly Invades the American Market as Myca Health Inc. Adopts Its ZRx Electronic Prescriber

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Nov. 25, 2010) - ZoomMed Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ZMD), is pleased to announce that just a few days after obtaining its Surescripts® certification, giving it access to the important American Market, ZoomMed is proud to announce that its fully owned subsidiary, ZoomMed USA, has concluded a first non-exclusive distribution agreement with Myca Health inc., a supplier of diversified IT solutions to the American medical community.

Indeed, Myca Health has selected ZoomMed's ZRx electronic prescriber as an integral part of its own global Electronic Medical Record (EMR) solution. Myca Health is a Canadian company that has developed an innovative and fully integrated Web application, designed for the American medical community. It has also implemented its « Hello Health » network in collaboration with one of the most important hospital networks in the United-States. "Fast Company » has described the Hello Health network as "…part electronic medical record, part practice-management system, and part social-networking site, complete with profiles and photos of doctors and patients, all in a secure environment that complies with federal privacy standards."

In the recent announcement of its Surescripts® certification, ZoomMed already declared it was quite confident it would rapidly penetrate the American market because « the ZRx prescriber is much more efficient and easier to use, than the eRx solutions that have been on the market for a long time ». So Yves Marmet, President and CEO of ZoomMed, showed a lot of satisfaction when he commented on the Myca Health agreement as follows : « I am particularly proud that Myca Health has adopted our ZRx prescriber, knowing full well that we will be replacing one of the two industry giants, used until now by Myca Health. This decision is very revealing and represents an external confirmation of our own perception of how our prescriber compares to others ».

ZoomMed is actively pursuing discussions with other potential strategic partners to accelerate its US market penetration.
