Date:2/26/2008

Strategic Relationship Combines Leading Mobile Computing Workstations with

Unique Integration Software to Give Nurses More Time with Patients

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Artromick, a leading developer of medication management and healthcare technology solutions for the long-term and acute care markets, today announced an exclusive referral agreement with McKesson Automation, Inc., a division of McKesson, the world's largest healthcare services, automation and information technology company. Artromick is now McKesson's vendor of choice for hospitals that need effective, easy-to- use, point-of-care mobile computing solutions to deliver its CarePoint Connect(TM) software.

Offered exclusively from McKesson, CarePoint Connect fully integrates a hospital's bar-code point-of-care (BPOC) system and Pharmacy Information System (PIS) with the AcuDose-Rx(R) automated dispensing cabinets on a mobile medication cart, right at the patient's bedside.

This unique integration software gives nurses "anywhere/anytime" access to key clinical information; reduces dispensing time at the medication cabinet by quickly identifying the location of each patient's medications; ensures accuracy and saves nurses time on medication administration and clinical documentation, all of which enable more time for direct patient care.

"Hospitals have come to expect high-quality, reliable and innovative products from McKesson Automation, Inc. to help their clinicians provide the best patient care, and Artromick mobile computing solutions will seamlessly fit with those expectations," said Paul Guth, president and COO of Artromick. "We look forward to a long relationship with McKesson and its customers, helping them access, record and manage patient information at the point-of- care, in a patient's room or really, anywhere in the facility."

"This agreement with Artromick demonstrates our ongoing commitment to enhance patient safety from the bedside to the loading dock. Artromick offers an extensive line of mobile computing solutions that work with CarePoint Connect to drive nursing efficiency and improve patient safety," said Dave Souerwine, president of the Automation Solutions Group of McKesson.

Hospitals can choose from among Artromick's extensive line of mobile computing solutions, including its latest workstation, the new NX10 Mobile Computing Workstation. This point-of-care computing cart is a flexible, light- weight and cost-effective solution that helps hospitals achieve their patient safety goals.
