Date:6/17/2008

SAN FRANCISCO, June 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) today announced a new AHIP Solutions partnership with HealthTrio, a leading health information technology company, to assist health insurance plans with providing Personal Health Records (PHR) to their consumers.

"This partnership reflects our industry's strong commitment to advancing greater adoption of Personal Health Records," said Charles Stellar, Executive Vice President of AHIP.

HealthTrio's PHR allows consumers to participate in and fully manage their care. It provides personalized health and wellness information for each consumer and allows them to interact with the health plan in real-time to review, update, and customize their own personal health maintenance and health improvement plans.

"We are very excited to have been selected by AHIP for the Solutions Partner program and look forward to working with their members," said Dr. Malik Hasan, President and CEO of HealthTrio. "Together, we share the belief that patient empowerment will foster improved care by placing the focus where it belongs -- on the patient."

Key features of HealthTrio's PHR include:

-- Health Summary Record Hidden List -- Patient data is

aggregated into a comprehensive patient record.

-- Decision-Support Tools Hidden List -- Tools include care

plans and wellness alerts to assist members in making informed decisions

regarding cost-effective treatments and self-care.

-- Patient Care and Safety Hidden List -- Medical history is

tied directly to a drug database for automated drug interaction

verification, reducing the potential for costly adverse drug events.

-- Secure Communications Hidden List -- Members benefit from

improved communications with providers and care managers regarding

appointments, test results, prescriptions, and more.

-- Data Privacy Hidden List -- Members determine permission

rights for each provider, group of providers, family members and other

individuals.

-- Portability Hidden List -- Full health record portability

empowers members who may need to provide medical data to specialists and

providers.

Added Hasan, "HealthTrio PHR enables health plans to reduce costs through the automation of administrative and financial processes, as well as enhance organizational efficiency with expanded data access and analysis. Additionally, plans benefit from increased member satisfaction with self-service patient portals, which offer cost-effective online benefit management and self-care tools."
