H-Quotient, Inc., Acquires Interest in MDHome.com, Attaining Major Medical Web-Site Access

MDHome.com Acquires H-Quotient, Inc., Stock at $10 per share



Apr 05, 2000, 01:00 ET from H-Quotient, Inc.

    RESTON, Va., April 5 /PRNewswire/ --
     H-Quotient, Inc., (OTC Bulletin Board:   HQNT) today announced agreement in
 principle to exchange 500,000 restricted shares at $10.00 per share for
 approximately 16 percent (2,500,000 convertible, one-for-one preferred shares
 and 350,000 three-year $3.00 warrants) of MDHome, Inc. (web site address
 http://www.mednets.com), a major provider of information to the healthcare
 community. MDHome's stock is sold at $2.00 per share.  H-Quotient, Inc.'s net
 worth will increase by $5,000,000.
     H-Quotient, Inc., Chairman and CEO Douglas Cohn, said, "Unlike some
 online, consumer-oriented healthcare sites, MDHome is a business-to-business
 website that connects directly with doctors and other medical professionals
 who have a fundamental and continuous need for information, and a willingness
 to pay for it.  H-Quotient's wealth of information is expected to
 substantially enhance the site."
 
     H-Quotient, Inc., will receive the following benefits:
     1. Access to more than 100,000 healthcare professionals now using
        MDHome.com;
     2. Fees from healthcare professionals' web access to its proprietary data
        base information systems;
     3. Lease/purchase income from online nodes for DataQuotient and DataQual;
     4. Fees from online connectivity with doctors, patients and medical
        facilities;
     5. Direct sales access for the company's core products (DataQuotient,
        DataQual, I-Link Enterprise, etc.);
     6. Preferred placement at MDHome.com and RNHome.com web sites, which are
        set to launch June 1, 2000.  These sites will replace the company's
        mednets.com site, which is the exclusive healthcare research portal for
        the top-rated Copernic meta-search engine that includes more than
        45 medical databases covering over 40 different medical specialties.
        Copernic has been consistently rated as the top healthcare search
        engine, by Medical Tribune, PC Week and others.
     7. The addition of the LifeLink telemedicine data feed to the DataQual and
        DataQuotient systems will potentially double the available real-time
        information captured by the systems.  The LifeLink system allows
        doctors to examine, diagnose, and treat patients who, for a variety of
        reasons, are unable to directly visit with a physician in person.  The
        LifeLink technology, developed by Kevin Montgomery, Ph.D. of MDHome,
        Inc., allows for a complete set of patient vitals, including ECG, to be
        transmitted in real time over a 2400 baud modem, enabling information
        to be transmitted from low bandwidth connections such as commercial
        aircraft up to full motion video through DSL and cable modems in the
        home.
 
     "The extremely rich data stream from our telemedicine technology will be
 available to customers of H-Quotient and will move the power of the DataQual
 and DataQuotient systems from the hospital and nursing home to the home, where
 an enormous amount of vital medical information will originate in the future,"
 said MDHome's CEO Dr. Peter Gregor, M.D., F.A.C.C.
     H-Quotient, Inc., President Alan Grofe said, "For the first time, doctors,
 patients, and healthcare facilities will be seamlessly linked through a
 combination of the internet and our state-of-the-art medical software
 technologies."
 
     This announcement may contain, in addition to historical information,
 certain forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties.  Such
 statements reflect management's current views and are based on certain
 assumptions.  Actual results could differ materially from the assumptions
 currently anticipated.
