InteGreat Introduces IC-Patient Portal & IC-MyChart

Patients Gain Access to Personal Health Records While Practices Streamline Medical Processes

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 24, 2005 -- InteGreat, a leading provider of electronic medical record (EMR) systems, announces the introduction of its IC-Patient Portal to streamline the exchange of information between patients and physician practices, provide "round the clock" access to online services and to automate data collection. The company also is launching IC-MyChart, which enables patients to securely view their chart summary online; access educational, condition-specific health information; and become more involved in their own care.

"Healthcare is moving to the digital age, and consumers expect to access their health information the same way that they access online banking or personal shopping," explains Jay Anders, MD, vice president and medical director at InteGreat. "Patients are frustrated by automated telephone menus and want better access to their health information as well as the ability to schedule appointments, look up their medical history and renew prescriptions online."

IC-Patient Portal automates care management, which enables physicians to deliver authorized educational material, disease-specific health reminders and disease management assessment tools directly to the patient's desktop. This streamlined communication enhances physician and staff workflow along with patient satisfaction and quality of care.

IC-MyChart modules include:

--  MyAppointment/My Appointment Request - enables patients to view and
    schedule appointments.
--  MyHealthSummary - allows patients to access an online summary of their
    EMR, including medications, allergies, insurance information, etc.
--  MyRxRenewal - enables patients to request prescription renewals.
--  Medical Questionnaire - gathers complete medical history and
    automatically inputs into the EMR.
--  Patient Education - provides comprehensive coverage of health,
    wellness and medical information for the patient consumer.
    
Anders states, "For physician practices, the patient portal brings a new level of clinician productivity that not only impacts the bottom line. It allows physicians to securely send health information to patients; thereby facilitating health management and improving patient care. IC-Patient Portal and IC-MyChart are the next steps in the evolution of EMR and patient health records, setting the foundation for the future personal health record (PHR)."
