InXite and OrangeHook Announce Strategic Relationship for the Healthcare Market

InXite Health Systems and OrangeHook, Inc. Launch “InXite Health OS”

Partners to Provide an Integrated Continuum of Care Solution for the Healthcare Market driven by chronic care management (CCM) program.

Columbus, Ohio and MINNEAPOLIS –October 19, 2017 – InXite Health Systems (“IHS”) a, Columbus, Ohio healthcare IT firm and OrangeHook, Inc.: OTCQB: ORHK (“OrangeHook”), a Wayzata, Minnesota software solutions company focused on identity solutions, announced today that they have reached an agreement forming a major strategic relationship for delivery of healthcare infrastructure solutions to the global healthcare market. The strategic product offerings will be based on each of the parties’ proprietary technologies, and will include a virtually integrated continuum of care platform powered by InXite’s advanced value-based care platform and OrangeHook’s patient identification and payments technologies. The bundled software solution uniquely empowers government agencies, payors, hospitals and healthcare providers to more effectively and cost-efficiently deliver patient-centered, value-based care and data-driven decision capabilities which are critical for improving patient outcomes, chronic care management, hospital readmissions and quality scores. The initial focus will be on providing CCM services approximately 2 million patients under managed services agreements with a variety of large health systems, Independent Physician Associations, State Healthcare Collaboratives, and Physician and Accountable Care Organizations across multiple states including Florida, Alabama, Ohio, West Virginia, Michigan, Arizona and California.

The comprehensive solution enables the data that is traditionally siloed within various hospital electronic medical records (EMR), practice management systems, pharmacy management systems and health plans to now be portable with the patient in a highly secure manner across the continuum of care. The solution will be branded by InXite as “InXiteHealth OS” (Health Operating System) and will deliver unparalleled capabilities that will transform the patient healthcare experience. InXite Health OS consists of advanced data interoperability, care coordination, patient engagement and quality reporting, and analytic capabilities from the InXite SmartCare Platform and leverages OrangeHook’s iChip® technology to power the “InXite Patient HealthCard.” OrangeHook’s patented iChip technology securely authenticates user access to unified patient information, will create an audit trail of patient encounters across the continuum of care and will provide “read and write” capabilities between the Patient HealthCard and the patients care team for easier and more effective exchange of information. The iChip will also provide the ability to deliver future capabilities to users such as advanced fraud protection and payment capabilities.

“The InXite/OrangeHook Health OS and Patient Health Card is analogous to the “ATM card for healthcare,” said James Paat, Chairman & CEO of InXite. “As healthcare is rapidly transforming from volume-based to value-based delivery and payment models, InXite Health OS provides the critical functionality needed to effectively and cost efficiently support value-based care programs including chronic care management, transition of care management and readmission and quality improvement initiatives.”

“Our strategic relationship and integrated solution is truly driven by customer demand in the healthcare market,” James L. Mandel, CEO of OrangeHook, Inc. stated. “Healthcare providers need comprehensive patient data to drive better patient outcomes and lower costs in a flexible and patient-centric manner, which are offered by the OrangeHook and InXite applications. We believe that the benefits of superior big data efficiency, artificial intelligence (“AI”), mobility, and built-in data protection that is compliant with healthcare standards are achieved only with the OrangeHook and InXite solutions. This comprehensive solution focuses on patient care within the scope of the healthcare driven continuum of care, provides both InXite and OrangeHook immediate revenue opportunities and applications that the market is already embracing.”

Imagine the public outcry if a fully loaded Airbus crashed, and the corporation, the pilots and the FAA all knew about the technical flaw that brought that plane down, but did nothing to stop it. Now, imagine if an event like that happened every single day. This is the magnitude of patient-adverse events that occur in this country every year due to patient misidentification. Annually, over 114K patients die in the U.S. due to wrong patient errors.This startling statistic has been cited by multiple reports and agencies devoted to patient safety and designs around promoting an accurate patient identity experience.

But still - healthcare providers go to work every day without total confidence that the patient they are providing services for is, in fact, the person they believe them to be. Patient misidentification may be inadvertent (ex: two patients with the same name and same DOB have their clinical records overlaid within the hospital’s EMR system) or it may be intentional (a person steals the identity of another patient and passes them self off as that individual to receive care). Of course, not all misidentification events result in an adverse event. Most are caught in a timely fashion before any harm is done, while some mistakes may result in incorrect billing or insurance filing. But, no matter the underlying cause or the severity of the outcome, the fact remains that hundreds of patients each day come close to harm or death, and don’t even know it.

This paper describes the current thinking around patient identity and designs to replace a broken process with one that seems to be “good enough”. We propose that there is a better way that has been in place for many years and has been used successfully by other industry sectors. There is a solution that is ready for deployment today and will have an immediate impact on patient safety.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Media Contact: Robert F. Riess, COO / CMO - OrangeHook, Inc.

MINNEAPOLIS, March 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Through a recently signed Agreement between Medsis, a U.S. based big data company, and the Colombian Government’s National Victims Repair Unit, an initiative was launched to modernize the entire Colombian citizens database system by means of the donation of Medsis’ big data management technology platform, CEREBRO, and OrangeHook resources. The system will convert all existing databases into a single unified civil registry. The use of CEREBRO, along with advanced state-of-the-art security protocols and algorithms, will allow identities of all registered victims to be safely verified and stored, creating efficiencies in all programs within the National Victims Repair Unit and potentially beyond. The National Victims Repair Unit was created to facilitate reparation payments which are a key component of the Colombian Government’s recent peace agreement with the FARC in their efforts to achieve a conclusion of the country’s 60-year-old internal conflict.

The project will provide a platform for the distribution of benefits to more than 8 million identified victims. Under terms of the agreement payments of approximately 1.2 Trillion Colombian Pesos ($400 Million USD) will be distributed annually over the next ten years, over 12 trillion pesos ($4B USD) in total.

WAIV, an Australian company focused on payment applications, will be the financial bridge between the National Victims Repair Unit and the persons registered in it. Together with a known payment network for the WAIVCARD and the participation of a Colombian bank, WAIV will be responsible for integrating the MEDSIS: CEREBRO platform to accurately disburse the reparations and financial humanitarian aid to the people registered in the database. The integration with WAIV as a processor makes possible the accurate and timely procedure to manage and disburse the funds to the victims over the next 10 years.

DAX CABRERA, President and CEO of Medsis stated, “This historic project, to help heal the nation of Colombia, is exactly what Medsis was designed for. The vision of Colombia and of director ALAN JARA to provide humanitarian aid throughout Colombia, is an important global goal of Medsis.”

John Fenga, CEO of WAIV, expressed his satisfaction at being part of this initiative that will allow relief to victims of Colombia's unfortunate internal conflict, “We’re excited to be a part of this incredible opportunity,” said Fenga, “Helping the less fortunate is a key part of the WAIV philosophy.”

OrangeHook, a Minneapolis, Minnesota-based company, is an identification authentication company with systems and applications focused in healthcare, government, and data transfer accuracy.

James Mandel, OrangeHook CEO, stated, “We are delighted to be recognized as a leader in identification processes, and look forward to our continuing involvement in this historic program.”

-Upon completion, combined company will be an SEC reporting, publicly traded and fully integrated SaaS-based conglomerate of disruptive technology solutions centered on healthcare, big data, safety, and banking
-Transaction designed to establish public company platform that adds the OrangeHook suite of product and service offerings to Nuvel’s existing operations, substantially reduce Nuvel’s existing debt and preserve value opportunity for existing Nuvel shareholders

LOS GATOS, Calif. and MINNEAPOLIS, July 13, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nuvel Holdings, Inc. (OTC PINK:NUVL) has entered into a definitive merger agreement with OrangeHook, Inc., of Minneapolis, Minnesota, a privately-held Software as a Service (SaaS) conglomerate. Upon closing of the transaction, the combined company will be fully reporting and publicly-traded and will consist of five operating entities that use complementary proprietary technology to offer disruptive and potentially life-changing applications centered on healthcare, big-data, safety and banking.

The material terms of the agreement are summarized in a Current Report on Form 8-K of Nuvel filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Friday, July 8, 2016. In the transaction, Nuvel will issue shares of two new classes of preferred stock to OrangeHook shareholders in exchange for all of OrangeHook’s preferred and common stock. Following the merger, Nuvel will effect a reverse split of its common stock, after which the preferred shares issued in the merger to OrangeHook’s common shareholders will convert into one share of common stock in the combined company for each share of OrangeHook common stock held immediately prior to the merger, and a substantial majority of Nuvel’s existing debt will be exchanged for equity in the combined company.

The existing shareholders of Nuvel will have the opportunity to participate in ongoing growth opportunities in the combined company. Such shareholders who hold Nuvel common stock immediately after closing of the merger (or a record date declared shortly thereafter), will be eligible to receive up to an aggregate of 357,143 shares of Nuvel common stock on a pro-rata basis if the Nuvel, Inc. operating entity achieves a $1.5 million revenue milestone, as measured and within the timeframes specified in the agreement. Based on current projections, management of the combined company is optimistic about the achievement of the earn-out milestone.

For purposes of structuring the transaction, the parties used an assumed $14 per share valuation for OrangeHook’s common stock, which is the same valuation that OrangeHook used to structure the prior acquisitions of its other portfolio companies. Based on the assumed $14 per share valuation of OrangeHook common stock, the value of these prior transactions totaled approximately $53.2 million. This assumed valuation of OrangeHook common stock was arbitrarily determined based upon pro-forma financial projections of OrangeHook management and there exists no quantifiable valuation analysis to support the same, aside from internal projections based upon existing contracts of the combined companies, among other factors.

Following the merger, the combined company will change its name to OrangeHook and plans to trade under a yet to be determined OrangeHook-related trading symbol. The combined company will immediately encompass the expanded offerings of the OrangeHook portfolio within the newly formed and recapitalized company. Subsequent to the merger, the combined company plans to apply for listing on a national securities exchange as soon as reasonably practical.

Rick Resnick, Nuvel’s CEO, commented, “This transaction allows Nuvel to more freely move forward as a result of the elimination of the vast majority of our current debt, which we believe positions the company for substantial growth and stability. We believe the transaction offers a fair exchange for existing Nuvel common shareholders through the participation in a future earn-out distribution based on a revenue milestone we are confident of achieving.”

James Mandel, OrangeHook CEO, commented, “We are very pleased to achieve the next step in our company’s evolution, which sets the stage for the public launch of our suite of disruptive and potentially life-changing applications designed to change the world we live in for the better in areas including mobile payments, healthcare information, billing and payments, data compression and storage, and emergency responder coordination. Although we acknowledge that we are setting a high bar with our operating goals, we strongly believe that customer acceptance of our solutions and the real world need for the same will validate our optimism. We expect the coordinated and sophisticated deployment of our product and service offerings will create substantial value for existing OrangeHook and Nuvel shareholders, as well as future investors.”

Subject to satisfaction or waiver of closing conditions set forth in the merger agreement, the parties expect to close on the merger portion of the transaction in August 2016 and to effect the post-merger reverse split recapitalization to be completed by approximately Labor Day.

The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 provides a safe harbor for certain forward-looking statements. Certain statements in this press release, including statements regarding the proposed merger between OrangeHook and Nuvel, the anticipated recapitalization, the value proposition of the transaction for existing Nuvel shareholders, targeted future revenue amounts for Nuvel, Inc. and operating results for the combined company, the anticipated completion dates for the merger and reverse split, and the assumed valuation for OrangeHook common stock (and the corresponding aggregate value of OrangeHook’s prior acquisitions), are forward-looking in nature. These statements are based on current expectations and intentions, as well as assumptions and estimates that management believed to be credible and reasonable but that are also subject to risks and uncertainties that may cause outcomes to differ from what is expected, including risks that the merger will not close in a timely manner or at all, or that the combined companies’ operating results will not meet management’s expectations.
