PositiveID Corporation’s New Generation Health Link Personal Health Record Designed to be First PHR to Communicate Seamless Real-Time Blood Sugar Readings for Diabetics and Their Caregivers/Physicians

PositiveID Corporation ("PositiveID" or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: PSID) announced today that its new generation Health Link personal health record (PHR) is designed to be the first PHR to provide real-time blood sugar readings for diabetics, and their caregivers/physicians. The Company intends to integrate its Health Link PHR with its iGlucose system, which uses wireless SMS messaging to automatically communicate a diabetic’s glucose levels in real-time.

As the Company expands the capabilities and interoperability of Health Link, it intends to integrate the existing iGlucose online database and data center into the Health Link PHR, which will be interoperable with Microsoft HealthVault and Google Health. The iGlucose system, consisting of a compact data logger and wireless transmitter, currently collects, records and transmits a patient’s glucose readings from a data-capable glucose meter to the iGlucose online database. The integration of iGlucose and the Health Link PHR, will give diabetics the ability to manage their disease unlike ever before. Diabetic patients, parents, physicians and other caregivers will be able to configure Health Link to set specific alerts and alarms related to real-time glucose readings. These alarms could alert the diabetic, parent, caregiver or physician to a high or low glucose reading and allow for real-time management and any necessary action to prevent a potential emergency medical situation.

Scott R. Silverman, Chairman and CEO of PositiveID, said, “As we look to increase the power and features of our first-of-a-kind PHR, Health Link, through the integration of our new iGlucose product, we believe we will be able to help diabetic patients more effectively manage their disease through real-time communication of glucose readings, which can be shared with physicians, caregivers and others. This unique feature will continue to differentiate Health Link from other personal health records in the marketplace as more patients go online to manage their health information.”

According to a November 2009 study by researchers at the University of Chicago published in the journal Diabetes Care, the number of diabetics in the U.S., which currently stands at 23.7 million, may almost double in 25 years, and the annual cost of treating them may triple to $336 billion.
