CHICAGO, IL, January 28, 2014, Leading Provider of Health IT Education Announces New Partnership with leading provider of continuous IT
security, compliance and risk management solutions.’

4Medapproved, the leading provider of online education and certification resources on topics relating to healthcare information technology and
medical business practices, announced today a new initiative and partnership to provide HIPAA and compliance products and services to the
medical community and to the IT providers who support them.

The final “Omnibus” Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) rule announced earlier last year includes new provisions that, if
breached, could result in significant fines and penalties for healthcare providers and their business associates. Fortunately, there are steps
providers can take to ensure that they are compliant with HIPAA and to protect themselves financially and professionally.

"Healthcare providers need a comprehensive solution to address their compliance requirements at a reasonable cost" said Kevin Donnelly, CEO
of 4Medapproved. "Medical practices and smaller providers are challenged to avoid potentially devastating breaches because the preventative
solutions available to larger groups and hospitals can be both time consuming and costly. This partnership addresses the most critical training,
reporting and continuous monitoring needs facing healthcare providers in their quest to protect patient information and meet compliance
requirements and deadlines."

The partnership will allow 4Med to expand their reach by offering subscriptions to eGestalt’s Aegify Risk Protection Dashboard, which provides
continuous monitoring and unlimited reporting to support HIPAA Omnibus compliance through use of an online tool. Conversely, eGestalt will
now provide on-demand access to HIPAA, PCI and compliance level continuing education and online training provided by 4Medapproved.
