Press Release Summary: Sfax is the first EFRT (electronic fax record) for the health
care industry

SecureCare Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: SCUC), is pleased to announce the launch of
its newest features for its flagship product, SfaxT.

Press Release Body: AUSTIN, Texas - Feb. 12, 2008 - SecureCare Technologies, Inc.
(OTCBB: SCUC), a health care information technology company based in Austin, Texas,
is pleased to announce the launch of its newest features for its flagship product,
SfaxT, making it a truly paperless electronic fax management system for health care
providers. SecureCare will launch the Digital Signature and annotation features
with a Webcast, which can be accessed by visiting the company's Web site,, Feb. 12, 2008.

The Digital Signature feature provides every user with a true digital certificate,
allowing a provider to digitally sign each fax from a secure, HIPAA-ready platform.
This feature saves health care providers significant amounts of time and money that
would be spent printing faxes in order to physically sign them and then manually
sending them back. Special annotation features allows users to edit faxed documents
with tools such as check marks and text boxes.

As the first and only EFRT (electronic fax record), Sfax also serves as a seamless
transitioning agent to EMR platforms for health care providers striving to convert
to an electronic-based health care system. Sfax recognizes the importance and
abundance of faxing in health information exchange, with 14.9 billion faxes being
sent and received between providers annually, and facilitates a manageable
transition to electronic medical records (EMRs). The majority of a Patient Health
Record is transmitted through manual faxing methods. With Sfax, there will be no
need for users to scan every manual fax into their EMR systems as documentation will
already be electronic.

"Up to 80 percent of a patient's chart comes into a physician practice from outside
the office primarily via manual faxing methods," said CEO Dennis Nasto. "With Sfax
and the launch of our Digital Signature and annotation features, health care
providers can save up to 95 percent of the time and up to 80 percent of the cost of
manual faxing. As more providers consider the move to EMRs, Sfax will speed the
adoption rate as a majority of that record will already be in an electronic format.
This will eliminate one of the biggest challenges associated with converting old
paper records to electronic records."

Sfax is a bi-directional electronic faxing system enabling health care providers to
send, receive and manage faxes from any application on any computer with an Internet
connection. Sfax can be easily integrated as an add-on module with existing health
care applications or it can be sold as a stand-alone solution. The system operates
on a HIPAA-ready platform, providing a complete log and audit trail for all
documents, ensuring the secure transfer of sensitive patient health information, a
feature virtually nonexistent with manual faxing.

CEO Dennis Nasto will be available the day of the Webcast for media interviews which
can be requested by calling: 512-215-4452.
