TORONTO--()--Medworxx Solutions Inc. ("Medworxx")(TSX VENTURE:MWX), a leader in clinical patient flow, and compliance and education solutions, announced today it has filed with the Canadian securities authorities its Consolidated Financial Statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis report for the year ended December 31, 2014. These documents may be viewed under the Company's profile at www.sedar.com.

“In May 2012, we leveraged our market leader position in Canada and raised $3M to evaluate whether our unique Patient Flow IP would successfully translate to international geographies. We used these funds to update our IP and build sales and partner channels,” said Dan Matlow, President and CEO, Medworxx. “Two and a half years later, and with $1.9M of cash still on hand, we are happy to report that we have returned to profitability in Q4, with operational license sales in France and the UK, and PTRs in the USA and Australia.” Matlow adds, “Our expense levels are generally in place at this point and our recurring revenue is growing. When we combine these factors with our international pipeline opportunities we look forward to realizing on the investments we have made to date.”

Highlights for the quarter ended December 31, 2014 include:

Medworxx contributed to the event by showcasing user experience from acute care providers using the Medworxx clinical utilisation solution. Over the last 12 months more than 20 UK hospitals and their commissioners have used the Medworxx Clinical Utilisation Review capability through embedded and diagnostic applications.
