Hayes Clinical Labs to Market MedeFile's Proprietary Electronic Medical Record Management Solution to Patients
Date:2/14/2008

Administering More Than 180,000 Patient Visits Each Year, East Coast's

Largest Independent Clinical Lab Services Company Aspires to Empower

Patients with Control Over Medical Care

CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J., Feb. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MedeFile International, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: MDFI), a company specializing in portable electronic medical records management solutions, today announced that it has signed a collaborative marketing agreement with Hayes Clinical Laboratory, the largest independent clinical laboratory on Florida's East Coast.

With five locations in Southern Florida and a service region that covers primarily Palm Beach, Broward, Okeechobee, St. Lucie and Martin counties, Hayes Labs is a full service medical laboratory performing tests on all body fluids and tissue. Each year, Hayes administers more than 180,000 patient visits, most of which have been referred from its client base comprised of nearly 500 doctors and healthcare specialists.

Chad Fredrich, President of Hayes, noted, "We routinely see patients who are subjected to redundant clinical testing because they are under the care of physicians who are unaware of other medical providers that are also treating the patient for related or unrelated medical conditions and who have ordered similar tests. This unnecessary redundancy is costly to the patient and costly to the healthcare system. Moreover, insurance payers may refuse to approve payment for testing when patients have exceeded 'frequency limitations' allowable for clinical tests, resulting in our having to write off these billings as bad debt. In this case, testing redundancy is costly to our company. By empowering patients with MedeFile, they gain control over effectively managing their own medical records, can carry actual clinical test results with them wherever they go, and can optimize the care they receive from their treating physicians. We are very excited about teaming with MedeFile International to begin offering this novel, cost-saving solution to the thousands of patients who rely on Hayes for clinical testing services."

Hayes Labs will also engage in actively encouraging its network of referring physicians, in addition to other independent clinical laboratories around the country, to offer MedeFile to their respective patient bases.

"MedeFile is on a mission to educate the nation's healthcare community on the fact that centralizing actual medical records with the patient is the key to achieving real, positive change to the U.S. healthcare delivery system. By winning the support of respected medical institutions and providers, such as Hayes Labs, we are succeeding in helping others to realize and appreciate the many important convenience, care-enhancing and cost-saving benefits made possible with the MedeFile solution," stated Milton Hauser, Chairman and CEO of MedeFile.

About MedeFile International, Inc.

MedeFile has developed a proprietary system for gathering and digitizing medical records so that individuals can have access to a comprehensive set of their medical records. MedeFile's primary product is the MedeFile system, a highly secure system for gathering and maintaining medical records. The MedeFile system is designed to gather all of its members' actual medical records and create a single resource that is accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Representing an advanced, yet easy-to-use, approach to portable, electronic medical records management, MedeFile combines state-of-the-art technology and the Internet to make medical data instantly accessible to each MedeFile subscriber and his or her authorized healthcare providers from anywhere in the world. In addition to accessing one's medical records through MedeFile's secure Internet portal found at http://www.MedeFile.com, members can carry their entire medical history and emergency information wherever they go on a unique device called a MedeDrive -- a proprietary USB drive designed to be carried on a keychain. The MedeDrive plugs into any USB port of a Windows-based PC; and because MedeDrive automatically loads its own viewer, users do not require any special programs or software to view data. MedeMobile provides on-the-go subscribers with the ability to enjoy even greater flexibility and access to their personal health information wherever and whenever they need it.
