MedeFile International, Inc., a leader in Internet-enabled Personal Health Record (iPHR) management solutions, announced that it has granted exclusive rights to the government contracting firm ADAR, Inc. and its principals, Debbie and Keith Rieger, to market the Company’s advanced iPHR solution to U.S. federal departments and agencies.
Through the agreement, ADAR and the Riegers will market to various agencies, including the Veterans Administration, Department of Defense, Health and Human Services, and Department of Homeland Security. MedeFile also awarded Riegers non-exclusive rights to market the MedeFile system to companies, major medical institutions and other entities outside of the traditional government contracting space.
For almost three decades, Debbie Rieger has served as a leading federal government contractor, certified in Government Contracts and Procurement by the University of Virginia. In 1996, she founded a highly respected government contracting company which reached annual revenues of over $20 million prior to its sale in 2010. She led as its President and CEO since its inception. In late 2010, she partnered with her husband Keith Rieger to form ADAR, Inc.
Keith Rieger, with 22 years of experience under his belt, has earned distinction as an experienced business development executive, working with both large and small companies in the telecommunications and telemedicine industries. During his career, he has helped to secure his clients and past employers numerous multi-million dollar contracts with a wide range of U.S. federal departments and agencies.
Working together at ADAR, the husband/wife team is now focused on leveraging their combined expertise, industry influence and proven capabilities to assist companies, such as MedeFile, to successfully penetrate and navigate the complex federal contracting sector.
Kevin Hauser, Chairman, President and CEO of MedeFile, remarked, “As a small company, we knew we needed to team with the right industry professionals if we were to succeed in establishing the federal government as a meaningful sales channel for MedeFile. It has quickly become apparent that we have found precisely the right partners in Debbie and Keith; and we couldn’t be more excited to be working with them. Having already lined up several MedeFile demonstrations for us with procurement officials at various federal agencies, they have wasted little time in winning MedeFile high profile attention in the right government circles.”
