Agreement Addresses Challenge Of Delivering High-Quality Emergency Healthcare to Rural Areas

NEW YORK, Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- SwiftMD, the revolutionary telemedicine firm, today announced that it has been selected by Ameya Preserve in Bozeman, Montana, to be the sole telemedicine supplier for each of the 300 new homes built in its development. Under the terms of the agreement, the first of its kind in the United States, the company will provide emergency medical services, via the phone, Internet or bi-directional video, to all residents and Ameya Preserve employees and their families. Each home will be equipped with all necessary technological components for the service - an important feature as the nearest healthcare facility is 45 minutes away. The homes are expected to be completed in 2011.

"At Ameya Preserve, we have gone to great lengths to develop a community that marries an environmentally-conscious approach with unsurpassed cultural enrichment and adventure," said Wade Dokken, founder of Ameya Preserve. "Quality of life is paramount to all that we do. Teaming with SwiftMD is a natural extension of what we can offer to our residents and employees."

SwiftMD is a subscription-based service that provides members with 24/7 access to a network of emergency trained, board-certified doctors via the phone, Internet or bi-directional video. Through these channels, the medical team is able to make a diagnosis, recommend treatment and prescribe medication as well as handle all relevant follow-up if applicable. Furthermore, SwiftMD will create individual portable, patient-friendly Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) that allows each subscriber to better manage their personal healthcare information.

"We are thrilled that Ameya Preserve has chosen SwiftMD for this important endeavor," said Dr. Elliot Justin, Chief Executive Officer, SwiftMD. "This community faces a common challenge in rural areas today - accessing timely, quality medical care. Our business model helps address this challenge. SwiftMD's service will enable Ameya Preserve residents and employees to receive superb medical attention, whenever and wherever they need it."

SwiftMD's medical team consists of emergency trained physicians who are experts in diagnosing and treating a wide range of conditions. Emergency room experience makes this group of physicians uniquely qualified to provide routine and urgent care via telemedicine.
