PALM CITY, Fla., Aug. 26, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Connectyx Technologies Holdings Group, Inc. (Pink Sheets:CTYXD) is pleased to announce that the Company has expanded its relationship with MASA Assist, one of the country's leading Medical Evacuation Companies with over 500,000 members. This is an expansion of a relationship that began over a year ago with Connectyx Technologies Corp and MedFlash, with the goal of using MedFlash® as a membership enhancement program. Their recent order of 2,100 MedFlash devices, including lifetime member licenses, is part of a new program that the Companies are developing to increase member awareness of this exciting travel, health and wellness program. MASA (Medical Air Services Association) Assist is extremely proud to announce this enhanced partnership with MedFlash. "We are in the life saving business and recognize that individuals need to have critical health information at their fingertips. Our partners in MedFlash have a similar goal in mind, that of safety and a potentially lifesaving product," stated Tim Green, MASA's President. MedFlash gives MASA members a simple way to build their health record while at the same time offering easy access to that information by first responders. MASA's President, Tim Green also stated, "We have had a very positive response from our members currently using MedFlash, giving us the confidence to expand the program."

The MedFlash internet site allows the member to maintain and update all their critical information and then download only selected key information to the flash drive. Ronn Schuman, the company's CEO stated, "Working with MASA opens up an exciting new opportunity in the travel insurance industry. Personal Health Records is one of the most publicized segments of healthcare today and MedFlash is in the forefront of this new marketplace."
