Press Release Summary: One of the leading predictive modeling companies in the
Triangle gets noticed for its breakthrough prediction in chronic preventable
diseases with their clients and employees.

Press Release Body: Research Triangle Park, N.C. - BioSignia, a predictive modeling
company delivering innovative healthcare solutions, was honored in the 2008
Healthiest Company Competition, sponsored by Rex Healthcare and Business Leader
Media. BioSignia's recognition is due in part to its work in developing Know Your
Number, the first disease-specific risk assessment tool to predict an individual's
risk of developing chronic preventable diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.

keeping its employees healthy too.

healthy-minded practices," says Tim Smith, president and COO of BioSignia. "Through
our work with Know Your Number, our employees live and breathe the message our
disease-specific risk assessment tool sends and you can see it when you walk through
our offices."

information such as their weight, blood pressure, family history, lifestyle habits
and key blood values. Then, it uses a proprietary technology called Synthesis
AnalysisT to produce a detailed report on your risks of developing specific chronic
preventable diseases. It's unlike any other health risk assesment tool because it
uses a multi-dimensional approach by isolating individual and aggregate data on a
multitude of risk factors.

Smith says each BioSignia employee has taken the Know Your Number test to learn how
to reduce their risks of developing chronic preventable diseases -- for some
employees it's been a life-changing experience. BioSignia was one of 24 Triangle
companies recently recognized in the Healthiest Company Competition.

"Companies can really help motivate their employees to target their specific disease
risks and adopt healthier habits," adds Smith. "And that's top on our list at
