Date:9/11/2007

Unique Partnership Identifies Healthcare Risks in 236 Countries and

Territories and Provides Pre-Trip Precautions, Detailed

Destination-Specific Disease Information & Vital Profiles on Medical

Facilities Around the World

BALTIMORE, Sept. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Combining their respective strengths, MEDEX Global Group and Harvard Medical International (HMI) have created MEDEX 360m global medical monitor, the most comprehensive health information website ever developed for international travelers. Unprecedented in the travel assistance industry, the partnership fuses MEDEX 's 30 years of experience in providing timely, effective and life-saving emergency care, with Harvard Medical International's knowledge of international health, medical care and public health issues.

MEDEX 360m includes profiles for 236 countries and territories, 76 diseases and health risks plus relevant advice and advisories. In this unique-content partnership HMI will continue to contribute health updates and medical alerts. MEDEX physicians and specialists review and edit all content and layer in their emergency assistance expertise, knowledge of infectious diseases, local medical practices and practical advice for travelers.

"The medical intelligence provided by MEDEX 360m can help travelers make preparations prior to travel, and good decisions about seeking medical assistance if a health problem arises during their trip," states Harvard Medical International President/CEO Robert K. Crone, MD. "Indeed, this program directs travelers to good quality health care options that they might not otherwise have found."

MEDEX 360m's user-friendly format offers quick and easy access to information such as endemic diseases, country-specific immunization recommendations and in-depth evaluations of medical facilities including their competence to treat a spectrum of health problems. This includes everything from traveling with diabetes, pregnancy issues, heart attacks and strokes, food or water-born gastro-intestinal conditions, trauma due to motor vehicle accidents and sporting mishaps, to finding the right dentist to repair a broken tooth or lost filling.

The MEDEX /HMI team also created the first 1 -5 rating system to evaluate each country's health risks. The scale covers diseases & health risks, standards of healthcare, access to healthcare, cultural barriers that can impact healthcare and finally, an overall score.

MEDEX 360m identifies top providers from MEDEX's Network of Global Resources, the company's proprietary database of individually credentialed hospitals, clinics and other resources. Significantly, MEDEX Global Group does not have any financial interest in the recommended healthcare providers. Rather, the company utilizes "best in class" criteria ensuring all clients receive the highest level of care available.

"MEDEX 360m is a natural outgrowth of the 300-point credentialing process and 'white glove' inspections that all of our providers are subject to," explains MEDEX Global Group President/CEO Bruce R. Kirby. "These exacting audits cover all aspects of a facility including medical equipment, procedures, training and staffing as well as language skills and customs relating to patient comfort and even their location and safe accessibility."

One of the world's leading emergency medical and security assistance/international insurance companies, MEDEX Global Group provides 365/24/7 support for corporations, organizations and individual travelers. Their extensive services include pre-trip intelligence and planning to real- time medical case monitoring, complex emergency evacuations and virtually every contingency in between.

Harvard Medical International is a self-supporting, not-for-profit subsidiary of Harvard Medical School. HMI's role is to extend internationally, the School's tradition of improving the quality of health care through excellence in clinical medicine, medical education, and biomedical research.
