About PHM

PHM is a healthcare services company focused on providing in-home testing for patients on blood thinner medications such as Coumadin® or warfarin. Medicare recently expanded reimbursement for in-home patient self testing (PST) of blood coagulation levels. PHM has a unique value proposition to cardiology groups that manage patients on blood thinners, focusing on systemization to enroll patients in PST. This unique, systemized approach creates an opportunity for physician groups to operate more efficiently, increasing revenue to their clinic while providing a higher standard of care for patients.

Information in this news release that is not current or historical factual information may constitute forward-looking information within the meaning of securities laws. Implicit in this information, particularly in respect of the future outlook of PHM and anticipated events or results, are assumptions based on beliefs of PHM's senior management as well as information currently available to it. While these assumptions were considered reasonable by PHM at the time of preparation, they may prove to be incorrect. Readers are cautioned that actual results are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, including the availability of funds and resources to pursue operations, decline of reimbursement rates, dependence on few payors, possible new drug discoveries, a novel business model, dependence on key suppliers, granting of permits and licenses in a highly regulated business, competition, low profit market segments as well as general economic, market and business conditions, and could differ materially from what is currently expected.
