Date:6/11/2008

ATLANTA, June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- WellCentive today announced the launch of the WellCentive Secure Messaging System, which is now a part of its popular online patient registry system for health care providers.

Atlanta-based WellCentive (http://www.wellcentive.com) provides a web-based preventive care and chronic disease management registry system for physicians, physician organizations, health insurance companies and other health care organizations. The Company is one of just 12 organizations selected from across the United States to help the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) test direct clinical outcomes reporting from health care registries for the CMS PQRI program.

The WellCentive Secure Messaging System allows patient information and related documents to be securely and quickly shared among physicians and other health care providers. Additionally, the WellCentive Patient Portal allows patients to access their own health care information from home and to use the secure messaging system to securely discuss health matters with their physician at their convenience. The WellCentive Secure Messaging System is included with each organization's WellCentive registry system at no additional charge.

The WellCentive patient registry system is a comprehensive web-based chronic disease and preventive health care system designed to serve an entire health care organization's patient population. Through the use of the WellCentive system, physicians and other health care providers are better able to track patients who have health conditions such as diabetes, asthma or heart disease. Additionally, the registry has become a popular tool as the importance of physician pay-for-performance programs has continued to grow.

"The WellCentive patient registry and our new secure messaging system help providers deliver more informed care through more efficient communication and improved patient engagement," said WellCentive co-founder Dr. Paul Taylor. "With the WellCentive Secure Messaging System, physicians are able to safely and securely share protected health information and discuss sensitive matters in regards to their patients. At the same time, patients can safely and easily message their doctors about sensitive health questions."

The messaging system is designed to support a wide range of current and emerging needs, including:

-- continuity and coordination of care

-- clinical integration programs

-- Patient Centered Medical Home projects

-- patient-physician communication

-- physician organization communication with physicians

-- preventive care programs

-- chronic disease management initiatives

The WellCentive registry system and its new secure messaging system can be used across the continuum of care by primary care physicians, specialist physicians, urgent care centers, emergency rooms, hospital systems, home health agencies, physician organizations and health insurance companies.

Features of the messaging system include email and real-time notifications when new messages arrive, as well as the ability to attach patient charts and other files to secure messages being sent. The file attachment feature can also be used by physician organizations or health insurance companies for a variety of purposes, including the distribution of quality outcome reports.
