China Information Technology’s (CNIT) Digital Hospital Information Systems to Enter Hunan Province

SHENZHEN, China, July 5, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ — China Information Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq: CNIT), a leading provider of Information Technologies and Display Technologies based in China, today announced that the Hunan Department of Health has qualified its proprietary digital hospital information systems (DHIS) for use throughout the entire province. The qualification effectively extends the Company’s DHIS to the Hunan market, in addition to its current presence in the Guangdong, Guangxi and Hainan markets.

In 2010, China’s Ministry of Health and Ministry of Finance, together, called for reform of the country’s healthcare systems, including the update of information systems at over 8,000 county-level hospitals across the country. In order to participate in the update, prospective vendors shall go through a rigorous project bidding and approval process. In May 2011, the Hunan Department of Health invited China Information Technology and dozens of other DHIS software vendors to a preliminary round of bidding for projects in Hunan, where experts performed strict evaluations on competing DHIS, electronic medical records systems (EMR), medical imaging systems (PACS), and laboratory information systems (LIS).

CNIT’s sophisticated software products passed all necessary assessments in each product category. As a result, the Company became one of only four qualified vendors whose DHIS products are recommended by the Hunan Department of Health.

“We are pleased to become one of the few DHIS vendors in China whose products meet all standards and testing requirements of the Hunan Department of Health,” said Mr. Jiang Huai Lin, Chairman and CEO of the Company. “The recognition puts us in a favorable position to win future digital hospital projects related to the Ministry of Health mandate, and to further penetrate the Hunan market. We look forward to securing a critical first-mover position and a solid customer base in Hunan Province as we prepare to implement a top-down roll-out of our sophisticated products.”
