Medical Billing Software Provider Promotes Philanthropic Contributions Company-Wide

CollaborateMD Donates on Behalf of Employees; Matches Donations

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - December 14, 2009) - CollaborateMD, a leading provider of hybrid SaaS practice management and medical billing software for physician offices and third-party billing services, today completed their 2009 employee-supported philanthropic contributions campaign. Since CollaborateMD Founder and CEO Douglas Kegler led the charge this past October to introduce the program, his company has worked to spread awareness, donate personal funds, and volunteer for one of the many charities CollaborateMD supports.

Kegler has long supported many charities, including American Forests, with whom CollaborateMD partnered in Q1 2008 to launch the "Plant a Tree - Go ASP" program. Other annual contributions have included UMCOR, St. Jude Cancer Research, Covenant House, Habitat for Humanity, and Junior Achievement of Central Florida. More recently, CollaborateMD became a gold sponsor of the March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction in Orlando, Florida.

The list of philanthropic organizations to which CollaborateMD donates has grown greatly since the beginning of Q4, at which time Kegler committed to make a donation on behalf of every single employee to the charity of that employee's choice. In addition to the already established list of organizations above, newly supported charities include Rock Pink, Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research, Orlando Sentinel Santa Program, Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, Cross Point Church, National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, Walk Now for Autism Speaks, Z88.3 FM, Ronald McDonald House Charities, and Beta Center. In addition to the individual donation, CollaborateMD offered 100% matching for all employee contributions.

The total amount of 2009 employee-supported philanthropic contributions campaign donations exceeded $10,500, which represents only a fraction of the total donations made by CollaborateMD for the year.
