 SCRIPT SYSTEMS ENTERS PUBLIC HEALTH CLINIC MARKET;
 SELLS TWO COMPUTER SYSTEMS TO WEST COAST FACILITIES
 HACKENSACK, N.J., Dec. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Script Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCPT), announced today that it has entered the public health clinic computer market which comprises medical facilities run by government entities for persons receiving public assistance. The company has recently sold two of its computer systems to the Washington Indian Health Board Clinic in Seattle and the Las Islas Family Medical Group in Ventura County in Southern California. Both clinics will use Script's proprietary software and IBM hardware. The value of both contracts is over $350,000. The Seattle installation computerizes the medical, dental and pharmacy facilities at the clinic.
 The Script hardware/software systems take advantage of the great data processing power available in state-of-the-art reduced instruction set (RISC) PCs, which allow them to perform in environments which previously required mainframe computers. Patrick Cline, vice president of sales and marketing, states that the price/performance levels and maintenance costs of these new systems are so favorable that a large replacement market for current mainframe-based medical computer systems is developing rapidly.
 Cline reported that other large systems sales are being negotiated with clinics in the United States and abroad. With each sale, Script contracts to support and service the system as part of its ongoing relationship. Usually, he added, these type systems are replaced or radically upgraded after about five years, and ongoing revenues from support and upgrades of these systems exceed the initial system price.
 The system is based on the company's own proprietary software called the Script System which integrates the clinical and administrative functions of a medical office in one user-friendly computer system. Functions include patient registry, billing, insurance claims processing, electronic transmission of insurance claims, management reporting, diagnosis and procedure tracking, practice analysis, clinical functioning, integrated word processing and report writing, appointment scheduling and a full complement of accounting functions. Storage, memory and interconnect capabilities can all be expanded to allow the system to serve virtually any sized multi-physician or multi-office facility.
 Script Systems is a leading developer of medical computer systems for physicians, hospitals and institutions. It has 12 direct sales offices throughout the country plus a wide network of distributors.
