A current trend in the healthcare industry is expansion and growth of several healthcare domains and growing demand for innovative healthcare solutions for the aging population.

There are several notable changes in the industry of late such as the entry of new telemedicine solutions, new clinical trials and studies, the development of new treatment therapies and techniques, improvements in infrastructure and the availability of skilled professionals. Active companies in the healthcare industry with market performance and recent developments include Medical Innovation Holdings, Inc. (OTC: MIHI), TransEnterix, Inc.

Medical Innovation Holdings, Inc. (OTC: MIHI) today announces its manufacturing agreement with MDI Source, a Georgia-based company serving the technology industry for over 30 years.

"When we entered this marketplace, the cost for telemedicine workstations were significantly high," says MIHI CEO Jake Sanchez. "This agreement with MDI is a game changer for MIHI and the marketplace, as we can now offer feature rich and user friendly comprehensive EMP/PMS software solutions at half the price. Our business plan is to subsidize a significant portion of the cost, if not 100%, of the telemedicine stations for our rural primary clinics that sign up and register to utilize our network of specialists. We want to make it as easy as possible for the rural clinics to join up with us."
