ALBUQUERQUE, NM -- (Marketwired) -- 07/12/13 -- Dick Govatski, CEO of Net Medical Xpress Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB: NMXS), a leader in the telemedicine market, said today he sees opportunity in the growth of telemedicine in Africa and specifically Nigeria. Govatski says there will be a chance in the future to provide primary care physicians for the program.

As part of this, Govatski has joined the Board of Doctors On Call Services (DOCS) Nigeria Ltd (http://docsnigeria.com), a nationwide medical network that provides a 24-hour medical call service supported by concierge medical clinics across the country.

DOCS Nigeria has introduced an array of innovative telemedicine and mobile health solutions including remote patient monitoring services and medical records storage. These services are the first of their kind in West Africa. The DOCS platform is connected to thousands of clinics, hospitals, doctors, pharmacies, diagnostic centers and laboratories across Nigeria with the unique ability to send medical information to these facilities in real time via text or email. In addition, the company's remote patient monitoring service allows for real time remote monitoring of blood pressure, electrocardiogram (ECG), blood oxygen, glucose and weight of patients who subscribe to the service.

Dr. Ernest Madu, Chairman and CEO of DOCS Nigeria, said, "We are pleased that Dick has joined the board of DOCS Nigeria. DOCS will benefit significantly from Dick's foresight and leadership in Telemedicine. With talent like Dick's we can accomplish our goal of positively transforming healthcare in Nigeria."

Dick Govatski, CEO of Net Medical, said, "I am delighted to be on the board of DOCS Nigeria.
