CardioComm Solutions GEMS™ WIN Enables Wireless Ambulatory ECG Devices to Send Data Through Consumer Smartphones

Global agreement with IntriCon Corporation to expand GEMS™ WIN sales through access to new and cost-effective, wireless ECG devices.

TORONTO, ONTARIO - CardioComm Solutions, Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EKG) (“CardioComm Solutions” or the “Company”) a global medical provider of electrocardiogram ("ECG") acquisition and management software solutions, today announced it has entered into an ECG device and software distribution and marketing agreement with Minnesota based IntriCon Corporation ("IntriCon"; NASDAQ symbol "IIN").

CardioComm Solutions will benefit directly from devices sales as an authorized distributor of the Sirona devices with preferred distributor pricing which will translate into competitive pricing to the Company's Global ECG Management Solution for Windows ("GEMS™ WIN") customer base. Hardware sales will commence in Canada and the USA with the anticipation that the Sirona device will have the needed CE Mark provided for sales to be possible in Europe by the end of this year.

Under the agreement, CardioComm Solutions has developed a custom interoptability between IntriCon's Sirona ECG device and the Company's proprietary wireless GEMS™ WIN module and ("GEMS™ AIR"). This integration will allow GEMS™WIN licensors to incorporate the Sirona device into their business operations for use alongside their existing ambulatory ECG/arrhythmia monitoring device inventory. For customers under an active GEMS™ AIR software license, the appropriate Sirona driver version update will be provided at no cost.

What's new? In addition to supporting traditional trans-telephonic ECG transmission, the Sirona device can connect via Android and iPhone mobile devices allowing a patient's own Smartphone to support wireless transmission of their Sirona acquired ECG data. Use of patient Smartphones would provide savings opportunities for GEMS™ AIR customers who no longer would be required to purchase more expensive ambulatory ECG monitoring devices with built-in GSM capabilities. Where a patient does not have a Smartphone, operators may provide a locked Smartphone for use with the Sirona device, a common practice with ECG service providers.

The Sirona-GEMS™ based ECG management does not involve the storage of any patient data on the Smartphone at any time and will be available to the North American market prior to the end of Q3 2015. GEMS™ WIN is the only FDA cleared and Health Canada approved, ECG management software platform available for sale that supports the Sirona device in North America.

CardioComm Solutions has previously reported requirements for ECG service providers to replace their existing ECG management solutions to versions that are WIN 7 and Server 2008 compatible. CardioComm Solutions released its GEMS™ WIN software upgrade to the arrhythmia monitoring market in response to the 2014 discontinuation of XP support by Microsoft and the soon to occur discontinuation of Server 2003 in July, 2015. The GEMS™ WIN family of products is a Windows 7 and Server 2008 compatible version of the Company's FDA cleared, Health Canada approved and CE Marked ECG management software and includes a specific module (GEMS™ AIR) that enables the use of the Sirona as well and other digital wireless event recorders.
