RelayHealth selected by Columbia University to link doctors and patients online

New York, NY and Emeryville, CA, January 11, 2005 -- RelayHealth Corporation, the nation's premier provider of reimbursed online doctor-patient communication services, today announced a three-year licensing agreement with CPPN the physician/provider managed care organization of Columbia University Medical Center in Manhattan.

Starting in January, the more than 1,100 CPPN physicians and other health care providers will have the opportunity to partake in this RelayHealth initiative, which enables secure communication between patients and their doctors and authorized staff.

"RelayHealth will help CPPN providers deliver non-urgent care in a convenient new way," said Richard U. Levine, MD, President of CPPN and clinical professor with the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology at Columbia University Medical Center. "This technology will enable our patients to have expanded access to the quality medical care provided by CPPN providers."

CPPN provides a "single-voice" for its members in managed care negotiations. As a self-governing organization of physicians, dentists, nurse practitioners and other healthcare providers, it has negotiated numerous major contracts with insurance companies for its membership.

CPPN-participating physicians/providers may be reimbursed $25 for RelayHealth online medical visits, or webVisits®, as part of a pilot program recently announced by Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield, the largest health insurer in New York State, according to HMO and PPO membership. Eligible providers will receive a $20 payment from Empire and a $5 co-payment from members who are covered by employer groups participating in the pilot.

Select CPPN specialists and primary care physicians/providers will be the first to roll out the RelayHealth service to their patients. The group has secured access to the full suite of RelayHealth services, including the webVisit consultation service, the eScript® prescribing and renewal service,
