ALR Technologies products utilize internet based technologies to facilitate health care providers the ability to monitor their patient's health and ensure adherence to health maintenance activities.

-27- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Index The Company's Health-e-Connect (HeC) system is an internet based product initially intended for patients with diabetes and their health care providers to improve communication and monitoring of patients' health management programs.

One aspect of the system is that HeC will incorporate data uploaded from patients' glucose meters into the ALRT database to quickly assess user adherence and performance compared to provider set targets, such as prescriptions and guidelines. This provides patients and caregivers the ability to track patient performance and adherence, thereby allowing timely intervention, which would consist of contact by the caregiver to patient. By providing this ongoing monitoring and feedback, the HeC system is expected to enhance outcomes of patients' health as measured by A1c and lower costs borne by the US health care system related to this chronic disease.

The HeC system has received United States FDA 510(k) clearance for sale. The Company is currently focusing its efforts on introducing and marketing its HeC system for patients and health care providers in the United States. The Company has limited financial resources and is actively seeking agency and marketing relationships to reach widespread adoption. In addition, the Company is working to establish health insurance company reimbursement for HeC services.

The Company's HeC System for diabetes management provides an affordable and easy to use tool to provide the communication network as recommended by the Committee. HeC includes a communications software platform that also enables health professionals to remotely monitor the health progress specifically relating to patients with diabetes. This facilitates more effective and timely communication of care to these patients.

The HeC system is compatible with the majority of glucose meters available for sale in the United States and also through the Company's universal upload cable.

Once development and testing is completed, the universal cable will be offered to customers who've adopted the HeC system.

Since receiving FDA clearance, the Company's senior leadership team has been presenting how the HeC system uniquely supports mutual priorities around improved patient care, healthcare cost-containment, accountability, and job creation based on the results from the clinical trials conducted and applied to studies surrounding diabetes management by numerous sources.

In the future, the Company may seek to adapt its HeC system to be used in the management of other chronic diseases. The Company would be required to obtain additional clearance from the FDA prior to commencing selling activities in the United States for other purposes.

Critical Accounting Policies and Going Concern Our discussion and analysis of our results of operations and liquidity and capital resources are based on our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, which have been prepared in accordance with GAAP.

The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. We base our estimates on historical and anticipated results, trends, and various other assumptions that we believe are reasonable under the circumstances, including assumptions as to future events. These estimates form the basis for making judgments about the carrying value of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. By their nature, estimates are subject to an inherent degree of uncertainty. Actual results may materially differ from our estimates.

The Company's condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going-concern basis, which presumes the realization of assets and the discharge of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of operations for the foreseeable future. See note 1 of the condensed consolidated financial statements.

Due to our being a development stage company and not having generated significant revenues, in the Notes to our financial statements, we have included disclosure regarding concerns about our ability to continue as a going concern.
