Biosign investor update

TORONTO, May 29, 2013 /CNW/ - Biosign Technologies Inc. (TSXV: BIO) ("Biosign" or the "Company") announced:

New Sales Agent / Value Added Reseller

Biosign has partnered with IBL-Internet Business Logic Inc ("ClinicServer"), a developer of Cloud-based clinical management software, based in Saint John New Brunswick to jointly integrate Biosign's Pulsewave™ health monitor technology and Healthanywhere™ telehealth monitoring platform into ClinicServer's "ClinicServer Flex™" clinical management software solution.  Both ClinicServer and Biosign will sell the resulting integrated package.  Based on the success of the Heart Friendly Dentist program, Biosign actively sought out a partner who could address the rapidly growing market for Allied Health practice optimization solutions. ClinicServer is a genuine pioneer and technology innovator within the Allied Health market.

Biosign CEO Robert Kaul stated "ClinicServer is a pioneer in creating simple, powerful software solutions for health care practitioners. Their innovative PencilThat application is enabling better customer engagement, while also providing substantial workflow improvements and therefore cost savings for the clinic. By adding precise vital sign measurements to the ClinicServer patient record, as well as offering cost effective in home monitoring, the integrated ClinicServer-Biosign solutions are going to be very powerful. We look forward to not only approaching ClinicServer's large base of existing customers in Canada, but also to co-marketing our combined solution throughout North America, starting immediately"

ClinicServer CEO Chris Boudreau commented "With ClinicServer's rapidly expanding market presence in Allied health both within Canada and abroad we identified a great value added benefit with Biosign's Pulsewave™ product for our customer base." He went on to say: "Currently, in Canada and abroad, health care spending has reached crisis levels. More and more of the public are looking to Allied health professionals to augment their primary care options, to help manage their overall wellness, prevention and treatment of disease. We believe that ClinicServer, combined with Pulsewave™ technology, will accelerate our growing clinic management solutions market share over the next five years. We are pleased to have the opportunity to work closely with The Biosign team to make that happen"

Initially ClinicServer will function as a sales agent for Biosign, and Biosign will sell Pulsewave™ units & vital sign monitoring services to ClinicServer™ users. Effective at the signing of the agreement, ClinicServer will apply to Health Canada for a Medical Device Establishment License ("MDEL"), which allows companies in Canada to stock and resell approved medical devices. Upon receipt of their MDEL, ClinicServer will become a Value-Added Reseller for Pulsewave™.

Starting immediately existing ClinicServer customers who operate ClinicServer Flex™ software will be able to use Pulsewave™ to monitor patients in the clinic. Settings within the Pulsewave™ software currently allow vital sign readings to be saved to the clipboard and posted into patient records with one click. This feature is used extensively by Dental Clinics operating under the Heart Friendly Dentist program. A future release of Pulsewave™ software, integrated into ClinicServer Flex™ through a secure, encrypted API, will automatically export vital sign readings straight from Pulsewave™ into the patient record.

ClinicServer and Biosign will jointly introduce their integration concept at the Health Fusion 2013 Conference & Expo, sponsored by the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors ("CAND") from June 7th to 9th in Ottawa ON. Sales to existing ClinicServer customers will begin immediately after the initial integrated software is tested and meets quality requirements.

According to the latest Labor Statistics, there are over 5 million allied health practitioners in North America who form the core market for the combined ClinicServer™-Pulsewave™ solution. These clinicians will purchase ClinicServer & Pulsewave™ software as a service, paying a recurring annual license fee. Biosign and ClinicServer will split these fees on a pro rata basis. An innovative referral program also incentivizes clinicians to prescribe Pulsewave™ units and services for home use. Each allied health customer who receives a personal Pulsewave™ report from their clinician will qualify for a discount on their own Pulsewave™ unit by purchasing online through Biosign's web store and entering a discount coupon code that is included with their report.  The clinic will then receive either a rebate on their program fees or a direct commission.

The Biosign Pulsewave™ Monitor is an end-to-end solution for non-invasive monitoring, analysis and reporting of health data. The Pulsewave™ cuff painlessly captures the pulse waveform from a person's radial artery and transmits it to the secure Biosign servers in the cloud. Biosign algorithms are employed to analyze the data in seconds in order to generate reports that include blood pressure, heart beat anomalies and other vital sign measurements. In addition, online Pulsewave™ analysis and reporting tools give patients and healthcare providers secure access to real-time and historical health information.

The Biosign Pulsewave™ Monitor will be an excellent addition to an already impressive  "Cloud" software solution offered by ClinicServer.
