(OTC Bulletin Board: MDFI), a company specializing in portable electronic medical records management solutions, today announced that The Benefit Source, Inc., an independent brokerage firm offering group and individual health insurance to customers nationwide, will begin actively marketing the MedeFile System to both its existing business clients and prospects.

By having access to a comprehensive view of a patient's medical history
across all care providers, resulting benefits range from improved patient
safety; elimination of costly duplicate medical procedures and clinical
tests; and detection and/or avoidance of dangerous drug interactions that
could otherwise lead to more costly interventions and serious health
complications. The MedeFile solution is a proprietary, patent pending
solution for gathering and digitizing medical records so that individuals
can maintain a comprehensive compilation and historical record of the
medical attention they receive from physicians, dental professionals and
other care specialists. MedeFile's flagship product is the MedeFile system,
a highly secure system designed to gather all of its members' actual
medical records and create a single, comprehensive medical record that is
accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week from any desktop or laptop
computer or hand-held web-enabled computing device. MedeFile enjoys a
number of direct, competitive advantages over others in the medical records
-- MedeFile is the only company that has developed products and services
geared to the patient, while containing the depth and breadth of
information required by treating physicians and medical personnel.
-- MedeFile does all the work of collecting and updating medical
information on an ongoing basis; its dependence on the patient taking
action is minimal - particularly when compared to patient action
required to support competing solutions.
-- MedeFile provides a complete medical record. Other companies claim
complete longitudinal records, but in reality only provide histories
(usually completed by the member/patient), and are by no means complete
or necessarily accurate records.
-- MedeFile is the only company providing a coherent mix of services and
products that are intended to affect the quality of healthcare by
enabling the patient to manage and access the information normally
retained by doctors and other care providers.
Milton Hauser, Founder, Chairman and CEO of MedeFile, stated, "We are delighted to welcome The Benefit Source, Inc. to the fast growing number of industry leaders who recognize and value the need to empower patients with control over their own medical records, which in turn benefits everyone in the health care continuum -- the patient, the provider, the employer and the payer."
