DENVER, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Global Med Technologies(R), Inc. ("Global Med" or the "Company") (OTC Bulletin Board: GLOB), an international e-Health, medical information technology company, today announced that its Wyndgate Technologies(R) ("Wyndgate") division has licensed its SafeTrace Tx(R) transfusion management software to MIMA, an independent physician group in Brevard County, Florida. The system is now live in MIMA's blood bank. MIMA is one of the first physician groups in the country to implement transfusion software in a private accredited Physician Owned Laboratory (POL).

Mary Lawrence, MT DLM (ASCP), Administrative Lab Director for MIMA commented, "When we made the decision to install a transfusion management system in our lab, we had no idea that there were no similar installations. We quickly realized that we were breaking new ground in our industry and needed the guidance of an innovative company with a customer focused team."

MIMA's decision to invest in its own blood bank was driven by patient and physician need. With a large Oncology practice and state-of-the-art cancer center, MIMA chose to open a blood bank to offer their patients lower cost outpatient services and a better transfusion experience. Chemotherapy and radiation treatments commonly require extensive transfusion support. When MIMA went online, it had no previous paper or legacy systems; it started an entirely new blood bank. MIMA's unique implementation is creating interest in the blood bank community. Medical Laboratory Observer, an industry journal, featured an article on MIMA in its September 2008 issue.

Ms. Lawrence continued, "We were impressed by the range of features and capabilities in Wyndgate's products after reading the annual CAP Today Blood Bank System Review. Our AABB consultant confirmed our findings. After narrowing the field to three companies, we made our decision based on Wyndgate's extensive safety features and their ability to interface with Orchard Harvest, our existing laboratory information system (LIS). We were also very impressed by Wyndgate's Professional Services Department and their ability to implement our software quickly."

SafeTrace Tx is a transfusion management software system designed to raise the standard of care for patients, improve safety, reduce waste and increase efficiency. SafeTrace Tx provides comprehensive tracking of orders, specimens, blood products, derivatives, and accessories with a complete testing and transfusion history in one consolidated record. These complex features will assist MIMA's technologists in selecting appropriate blood products for their patients. SafeTrace Tx is designed to support the full scale of transfusion services from enterprise-wide centralized facilities to small, individual laboratories.

Kimberly Stone, RN MT(ASCP), Transfusion Services Supervisor for MIMA, remarked, "We were very impressed with the overall features in SafeTrace Tx. The software's Patient-At-A-Glance(R) Bar is an important feature for our technologists. It allows our staff to access medical information about a patient in one convenient location without switching to multiple screens and flags problem areas in the patient's profile with easily defined color coding."

Wm. Scott Dustin, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Wyndgate Technologies, stated, "MIMA's use of transfusion management software in a physician owned lab is a pioneering concept for their industry. We are thrilled to have been chosen to provide the solutions and implementation team to assist MIMA in realizing their new transfusion service. Ms. Lawrence and her team have thoroughly researched and created a comprehensive lab to provide exceptional services for their patients." Mr. Dustin continued, "Working with MIMA has opened new opportunities for Wyndgate. We see great market potential for implementations of this kind in other independent physician groups throughout the country."
