Nightingale announces five new contract wins



    - New sales increase Canadian user base by 130 healthcare providers -

    MARKHAM, ON, June 11 /CNW/ - Nightingale Informatix Corporation
("Nightingale" or the "Company") (TSX-V: NGH), a healthcare application
service provider (ASP) of Electronic Medical Record (EMR) and practice
management solutions, today announced five agreements, totaling approximately
$850,000 in aggregate, to provide its EMR and practice management solutions to
Alberta's Integrative Medical Institute of Canada Health Centres (IMI), a
health care region in Saskatchewan and three regional Ontario Family Health
Teams (FHT).
    "These agreements build on our growing presence in the Ontario and
Alberta markets and serve to reinforce our leadership position in the Canadian
EMR market," said Sam Chebib, President and CEO of Nightingale. "We are
particularly pleased to announce our first region-wide implementation in
Saskatchewan, and look forward to expanding our footprint throughout that
province. Going forward, we will work to further increase our healthcare user
base in Canada, and will leverage the broad client base acquired in the recent
purchase of VantageMed to roll out our EMR solutions in the U.S. and replicate
our success in the Canadian market."

    IMI Health Centres

    IMI Health Centres are non-profit integrative medicine education and
research facilities that use a combination of conventional and alternative
medical approaches to patient care. Under the terms of the agreement,
Nightingale will license its healthcare software applications to IMI for its
Calgary-based clinic, and will provide associated support, training and
implementation services. Implementation is expected to be completed in the
summer of 2007.

    Saskatchewan Health Region

    Saskatchewan has undertaken the initiative of leveraging technology tools
to enhance the quality and efficiency of healthcare services province-wide.
Under the terms of this contract, Nightingale will license its healthcare
software applications to a provincial healthcare region, and will provide
associated support, training and implementation services.

    Peterborough Ontario Family Health Team

    The Peterborough FHT consists of 20 physicians and 14 Allied health
providers. Under the terms of the agreement, Nightingale will license its
healthcare software applications to 11 FHT clinics in Peterborough, and will
provide associated support, training and implementation services.
Implementation is expected to be completed by September 2007.

    Peninsula Ontario Family Health Team

    The Peninsula FHT consists of two sites with seven healthcare
practitioners. Under the terms of the agreement, Nightingale will license its
healthcare software applications and will provide associated support, training
and implementation services. Implementation is expected to be completed by
August 2007.
    Nightingale will also deploy an interoperability component, creating a
direct interface between the two clinics' EMR systems and the lab and
diagnostic imaging systems at the seven hospitals in the Grey Bruce Health
Services network. Similar to what Nightingale has previously deployed in Nova
Scotia and other areas, this functionality enables the hospital to directly
transmit lab results and diagnostic images electronically to Peninsula's
healthcare practitioners, facilitating the timely transfer of data and the
elimination of paper flow.

    Canes Ontario Family Health Team

    The Canes FHT consists of two sites with more than 12 healthcare
practitioners. Under the terms of the agreement, Nightingale will license its
healthcare software applications and will provide associated support, training
and implementation services. Implementation at the first site is expected to
be completed in August 2007. The second site is scheduled to launch in the
fall and will go live at that time.
    "The Canes FHT completed a very thorough review of EMR vendors and when
we short-listed the companies against our selection criteria, Nightingale rose
to the top," said Gord Gunning, Executive Director of Canes FHT. "We involved
our Lead Physician, a Nurse Consultant and our e-Health Specialist in the
process, and we were all impressed by how comprehensive the software is and
how easy it is to use. A key factor in our selection process was our site
visits to Dr. Michelle Griever's clinic in North York to see first-hand how
Nightingale's EMR software has transformed her busy practice. We look forward
to the implementation of the software, and believe that it will set us on the
right path to enhance our level of patient care and improve the communication
and operational efficiency amongst our practitioners."
