LOS ANGELES, April 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MediSwipe Inc. (www.MediSwipe.com) (OTCBB:MWIP), a patient security solutions and financial products company for the medicinal marijuana and health care industry, today announced the first agreements for installation of the MediSwipe DMS, a proprietary digital patient management and tracking software application developed for the medicinal marijuana sector. The MediSwipe DMS will be installed in the first three dispensaries/provisional centers in the state of Michigan starting today. An additional two centers also under agreement in Ann Arbor will install the MediSwipe software by end week. The MediSwipe DMS application includes patient registration, digital records management and tracking of all caregiver transactions including log-in time, date stamp and quantity and type of medication. Users under agreement will pay monthly licensing fees for access to the program.
"There has been much anticipation for the release of our patient and caregiver solution within the state, and we are extremely pleased with the feedback that we have gotten from veterans of this industry, medical professionals and government officials. After last week's information from Colorado that even one of the most progressive states in this sector has not yet settled on a patient tracking and revenue system for this industry, we see a huge opportunity in front of us and realize what is at stake. The MediSwipe DMS will prove to be the leading solution having the ability to track 'seed to sale.' Additional features include but are not limited to: storing data on what physician initially certified a patient, caregiver history and link to the patient, and most important-monitoring the quality and quantity of medicine given to a patient and their progress by authentication log-in. We expect to have between 8,000 and 10,000 patients scanned into the system by this month with current interest and several additional operations presently in talks with us. This model will be the first in the sector to link certification, testing, caregiver dispensing of medication and the tracking of the patients progress of their on-going wellness and health. Those operations seeking a demo of the MediSwipe DMS may contact the Company directly at email@example.com," stated B. Michael Friedman, CEO for MediSwipe.
