First Electronic Healthcare Network in the U.S. Begins Operations in Buffalo, NY
Date:2/16/2009

y Memorial Hospital in Gowanda, Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center, Medina Memorial Health Care System and MedFirst Urgent Care in Amherst. Sharma Family Medicine and Lake Shore Eyecare, both in Irving, are also signed on. In all, the institutions have 21 locations.

Additionally, Bertrand Chaffee, Brooks Memorial and Western New York ImmediateCare are expected to join shortly, along with five pediatric practices, one dental practice and an occupational health group.

Officials are also talking to most other area hospitals and practices -- including Catholic Health System, Erie County Medical Center, Buffalo Medical Group and Lifetime Health Medical Group -- to sign them up as well. Only Kaleida Health, the area's biggest hospital system, remains a holdout, Wolfson said. The Company is also aggressively pursuing plans for expansion of the Network nationwide.

Costs vary depending on the provider, with a routine physical exam for illness costing $45 at TLC but $62 at Niagara Falls and $90 at MedFirst. A woman's annual physical is $88 to $90, while mammograms are $76 or $85. X-rays are as low as $40 at TLC's sites. Flu vaccines are free at the hospitals, and $15.50 at MedFirst.

TLC also has a $20 dental exam and $40 cleaning, and a $25 basic eye exam and $69 eyeglasses.

The only other cost is $10 to first get the ID card, and $10 a year to renew it. The card can be obtained at any of the hospitals, and is good at any of the participating facilities. Prices are posted online at www.htnnet.com.
