                                 Last November 19, 2005 the growing industry of medical transcription with its                         huge employment opportunity that it brings to our country was featured in                         Magandang Gabi Bayan. MGB tackled on how Filipinos will benefit from the big                         employment demand in the Medical Transcription Industry: according to the US                         Department of Labor, employment of medical transcriptionists (MTs) is projected                         to grow faster than the average for all occupations through 2012.

                                 Currently, there are vast employment opportunities for MTs in the country;                         local Medical Transcription Service Organizations (MTSOs) prefer to hire                         experienced transcriptionists or those who have completed training in medical                         transcription.

October 21, 2005 MTC and Innovaquest, Inc. Forge a Partnership to hire Medical                         Tanscriptionists

                                 MTC Academy and Innovaquest have forged a new partnership where                         students that  have graduated under the new profiling and testing system of MTC                         find employment at any of InnovaQuest's 12 existing production centers                         throughout the country. Under this partnership, Innovaquest as a strategic partner                         of MTC, implements client specific training requirements within the MTC curriculum                         to more effectively align graduates with the needs of Innovaquest US based                         client's.

                                 Steve Dunkle, President and CEO of Innovaquest said " this new partnership                         shows strong support for MTC graduates and the Philippine transcriptionist as well                         as our own clients. Overall, Innovaquest is dedicated to giving MTC graduates the                         guidance they need in locating the right employment in any of the production                         centers located throughout the country as well as aligning them with the needs                         and expectations of our clients. "

                                 Innovaquest has an existing base of 12 locations and is growing at an                         average rate of 2 new facilities per month. "We continue to hire as many MTs as                         MTC can effectively recruit, educate and provide after they have gone through our                         own profiling and interview process. Based upon present requirements and                         projections, by the end of next year we anticipate having in excess of 4,500 MTs                         working in 45 locations after graduating from any one of the targeted 60 MTC                         school locations throughout the Philippines by 2007. Due to an increased demand                         from other countries, we are now exploring providing our model of education and                         production with a set curriculum into other areas where the desire to create a                         quality based BPO operation exists."
