Leading Concierge Practice in Miami, EliteHealth, Launches Online Patient Portal

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - December 23, 2008) - Led by one of South Florida's top cardiologists, Steven A. Schnur MD, EliteHealth has quickly become one of the fastest growing Concierge Medical Practices in the country. With a mission of creating customized health and wellness plans for individuals and corporations seeking the best in healthcare, EliteHealth expands its outreach with the launch of their patient portal system -- EliteOnline.

"After nearly one year in development we are excited to officially release the system to our patients. It is going to dramatically streamline our communication with our patients in addition to offering our patients invaluable tools for managing their health," says Dr. Schnur, co-founder of EliteHealth.

EliteOnline is a secure patient portal that includes a system for patients to communicate with their doctors through an online medical consultation system, an online marketplace where patients can buy preventive-oriented health products and an online portal providing access to individual online medical records.

EliteOnline eConsultation, the online medical consultation system, offers patients an alternative to visiting the office for routine appointments that include follow-up visits and prescription refills. Unlike sites with unregulated and frequently incorrect information, eConsultation provides members with access to board-certified doctors familiar with their health history.

The EliteOnline eMarketplace allows patients to purchase high quality, health related products that have been hand selected by the EliteHealth team of physicians. Some of these products include health supplements, stress monitors, blood pressure and heart rate monitors. EliteOnline members receive exclusive discounts on all the products in the store.

The EliteHealth eMedicalRecord system enables patients to manage their own personal health records by storing important health related documents in an online document management system. EliteHealth also offers assistance in populating the patient's medical records by uploading documents provided by the patient into the document manager. Common documents include lab results, x-ray images, discharge reports and other documents that they receive from their other health practitioners (outside of EliteHealth). A new version of the EliteHealth eMedicalRecord is scheduled for release in January '09, which will feature vitals/lab result tracking, medical history management and a self-upload feature for the document manager.

The EliteOnline patient portal demonstrates the growing presence of medical practices on the web. EliteHealth will set the bar in the service options offered to members as they continue to expand their service model to meet those with a blend of needs, both online and in person.
