Date:2/3/2009

Janine Broda Elevated to Chief Marketing Officer and PACS Industry Veteran

Shawn Gibbons Joins as MEDxConnect(TM) General Manager

WASHINGTON, Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Compressus, Inc., leaders in healthcare IT systems interoperability solutions, bolstered its executive team with the promotion of Janine Broda to chief marketing officer and the recent appointment of Shawn Gibbons as vice president and general manager of the MEDxConnect(TM) division.

Proven to increase physician efficiency, reduce Enterprise costs and improve patient safety, Compressus' MEDxConnect is the first and only software solution that indexes, integrates and routes all relevant patient medical information in real time. Focused exclusively on providing interoperability solutions, MEDxConnect was built from the ground up to address the need for connectivity across disparate HIS, RIS, PACS and related information systems that enables organizations with disparate multi-vendor systems to function as one virtual enterprise.

"Janine joined Compressus three years ago as the Company was transitioning from development to a commercial organization and has led Compressus' efforts to define and build a whole new marketplace in healthcare IT, that of interoperability," said John B. Macfarlane, CEO, Compressus. "With both a clinical radiology background and deep PACS product management and marketing experience, Shawn Gibbons brings tremendous perspective to the issue of interoperability. We expect their combined industry expertise and experience will greatly bolster our ability to drive understanding and adoption of the company's Enterprise Systems Integration solutions."

Previously serving as vice president and general manager of the MEDxConnect division, Broda is now responsible for developing and maintaining business relationships for Compressus' medical imaging products. With more than 25 years of healthcare industry experience with expertise in sales, marketing and customer service, she has managed major software and hardware acquisitions for large HMOs and GPOs, the military and government agencies. Prior to joining Compressus, Broda was the vice president of professional services and director of sales for the Western region of Fischer Imaging Corporation. Prior to that, Broda spent 18 years at Agfa Healthcare, starting as a sales executive and eventually becoming director of strategic business development. Broda has also been an independent mammography consultant and a technical product manager at DuPont. She holds an M.B.A. from the University of Delaware, a Bachelor of Science from Ohio State University, a Bachelor of Arts from Otterbein College and a degree in respiratory therapy from Riverside Methodist Hospital.

A 25-year veteran of the PACS, healthcare information systems and radiology industries, Gibbons previously served as global PACS product manager for GE Healthcare IITS. Responsible for all PACS programs, including radiology, cardiology and Enterprise system, Gibbons joined GE when IDX Corporation was acquired. At IDX, he served as the Imaging-Integration product manager responsible for the new product launches, development of a cardiology PACS product line and the overall product roadmap. Gibbons also spent more than five years with AGFA Medical, where he held positions of increasing responsibility in product and marketing management. A certified radiology technologist and graduate of Cardinal Strith University in Milwaukee, WI., Gibbons began his career with clinical applications positions with Waukesha Memorial Hospital and Philips Medical Systems.

"Shawn's experience at GE and AGFA, two leading PACS industry providers, not only bolsters our industry knowledge and relationships but, more importantly, brings experience working with thousands of customers to implement PACS and healthcare IT systems solutions. This is critical to helping drive awareness and understanding of the problems associated with integration issues and the adoption of Compressus' world class MEDxConnect solutions," said Janine Broda.
