WINSTON-SALEM, NC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 30, 2006 -- ALR Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: ALRT) announces that Apple Patch Community, an assisted living organization that is utilizing the ALRT500 system, has received a special invitation to present at the prestigious 2006 Institute For Behavioral Health Informatics conference about their innovative, leading edge method for assisted living care for those with mental retardation.

Apple Patch executive director, Chris Stevenson, reports that their use of the ALRT500 compliance reminder and monitoring system has generated attention at the national level and that the Apple Patch Community care approach and the ALRT500 monitoring system will be presented in detail at this national meeting on November 9th and 10th in Arlington, VA. "Several officials and companies have heard about the ALRT system since we began use a few months ago and called me about it," reports Stevenson. "The ALRT compliance system has provided our caregivers with the assistance needed to remember to complete or administer the many activities and medications that are essential for quality care. The ability to remind and to monitor at such an affordable price is remarkable. We expected the cost to be substantially higher. Our monitoring has allowed for education changes and timing changes to help improve behavior. Not only are we providing more accurate and timely care but it also makes us more cost efficient."
