Real Time, Face-to-Face Doctor Visits Now Available Online
Date:5/23/2008

MIAMI, May 23 /PRNewswire/ -- MDWebLive.com, offering live video medical consultations via webcam between patients and board-certified doctors from multiple specialties has been launched in Miami by AmeriGroup Holdings, Inc.

The service allows patients the opportunity to interact with their doctors from home, office, hotel or anywhere else in the world.

MDWebLive.com:

-- Is intended for use with non-urgent healthcare related matters such as

mild infections, hypertension, thyroid conditions, HIV counseling,

men's and women's health issues to name a few.

-- Allows for follow-up visits and second opinions.

-- Facilitates after-hours or on-call medical consultations

-- Provides for the delivery of health services for persons while

traveling or living in remote areas,

-- Acts as an alternative to office visits when a patient's own primary

care physician is not available or when there are constraints

preventing these visits

-- Avoids the time and expense of traveling to visit their doctors as well

as the potential exposure to the illnesses of others present in

doctor's waiting rooms.

At $40 per visit, an online doctor's visit represents a significant decrease in the cost of routine medical care. Sessions are recorded allowing physicians to review patient interactions, verify medical information and provide the basis for re-examination of diagnosis.

The site stores patients' medical records, sends prescriptions digitally to reduce handwriting error and coordinates lab work through Quest Diagnostics where all results are appended to your records.

MedMarket Diligence, the leading telehealth research firm, estimated that in 2003, there were 169 million telemedicine care visits that resulted in payments of $6.28 billion. The report adds that as the U.S. population ages, and pressures of medical care costs containment increase, home care will become more important. Because home telemedicine care has proven it can increase the number of patients seen by a healthcare provider by as much as four times, it becomes a more attractive alternative to traditional visits.

MDWebLive.com is owned and operated by Amerigroup Holdings, Inc., a Florida Corporation. For more information, visit http://www.mdweblive.com.
