Grants API Marketing, Sales & Advertising Company Exclusive Rights to Convenience Stores, Gas Stations, Bodegas, Independent Pharmacies and
Health Food Stores in the U.S. and Canada
CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J., June 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MedeFile International, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: MDFI), a company specializing in portable electronic medical records management solutions, today announced that it has granted South Florida-based API Marketing, Sales & Advertising Company the exclusive right to market MedeFile memberships to consumers in more than 100,000 retail outlets throughout the U.S. and Canada.
For more than 20 years, API has specialized in marketing consumer products and services through convenience stores, gas stations, bodegas, independent pharmacies and health food stores across North America. Clients have included PT-1, Verizon, Old Navy and Playboy, just to name a few. Founded by CEO and President Alex Papas, API employs more than 500 independent sales representatives in the Continental U.S., Hawaii and Canada.
Papas noted, "Once we understood what the MedeFile solution was, we came to the fast conclusion that there is simply no one who should be without it. Aside from providing peace of mind, convenience and security, this cost effective and tech-savvy electronic medical record management solution is also environmentally friendly, helping to eliminate, to large degree, the need for producing hard copies of health records. Based on my own personal, harrowing medical experiences involving unnecessary and costly redundant testing, I believe that MedeFile is indeed capable of having a very positive -- if not profound -- impact on the U.S. healthcare system. Consequently, API is very excited about having the opportunity to partner with MedeFile to bring this important new technology to the attention of U.S. consumers everywhere."
API will collaborate with MedeFile on the high impact design and production of a point-of-sale, MedeFile-branded 'rack card' that API will arrange to be positioned at or near check-out counters in retail venues within the API sales network. In addition, the Companies will collaborate on the design and production of MedeFile-branded 'stickers' to be adhered primarily to storefront glass windows, main entry doors and gas pumps, as applicable.
"We are very pleased that API appreciates our vision for establishing the MedeFile solution as the de facto standard for how individuals manage their personal medical records," stated Milton Hauser, Founder, Chairman and CEO of MedeFile. "It is our opinion that the key to long term success for our Company is through education of the mass consumer market on the value and potentially life saving benefits of our patient-centric approach to automating the collection, archiving and management of a person's medical history. With API's assistance, we look forward to introducing MedeFile to millions of consumers in the coming year."
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.
