EASTERN CONNECTICUT HEALTH NETWORK SELECTS MOBILEMD FOR HIE

YARDLEY, Pa., October 17, 2011 - MobileMD, Inc., announced today a five-year agreement with Eastern Connecticut Health Network, Inc. (ECHN) of Manchester, Conn., that will enable the health system to provide state-of-the-art health information exchange (HIE) connectivity to community physicians as well as ECHN's five outreach sites, two hospitals, and surrounding medical community including Visiting Nurse and Health Services Corporation, skilled nursing home & rehabilitation center and other providers.

MobileMD offers a cloud-based 4D HIETM solution that provides secure clinical and administrative data exchange between all providers caring for patients within a community regardless of location, EMR technology, or vendor. The company will deploy its 4D HIETM comprised of its flagship products, 4DX Intelligence Engine NetworkTM and 4DX Clinical PortalTM - including its newest product offerings, the 4DX Patient PortalTM and 4DX Connected Health RecordTM, to improve critical care information flow among physicians, facilitate physician alignment across ECHN's provider network, and offer customized communication tools and information to patients.

ECHN plans to offer the exchange to the entire Manchester-area medical community, including that of other healthcare organizations, and serves as a foundational element to ECHN's accountable care organization (ACO) strategy.

ECHN's Vice President for Information Services Charles Covin explains, "ECHN looks forward to working with MobileMD as the means to establish closer communications with community providers. The MobileMD product suite will permit all members of the provider community to better communicate and share pertinent information in a secure manner," he said.

"I believe health information technology (HIT) is in the midst of a paradigm shift on many levels," MobileMD's CEO Todd Fisher noted. "Perhaps most significantly, it is becoming increasingly clear that HIT has to serve entire care communities in addition to and in conjunction with specific healthcare entities. To that end, MobileMD is looking forward to working with ECHN to serve its community of providers and patients in a way that supports

better care through improved information flow, accessibility, and analysis. ECHN's progressive attitude has paved the way for an exciting opportunity that will benefit those served by ECHN," he commented.
