Subtitle: CGM LIFE eSERVICES soon also in France, Italy, Belgium, Czech Republic
and the USA
More and more German practices use online services for patient communication

Koblenz (euro adhoc) - March 26, 2012: The Internet has developed into an
indispensable medium in recent years und gains more and more importance in
healthcare. Almost 70 percent of physicians consider online channels as the most
important marketing instrument. To make sure the advantages of technological
progress also ease daily practice life, CompuGroup Medical (CGM) has developed
online services for physician-patient communication. After a successful piloting
phase in Germany and Austria, the CGM LIFE eSERVICES are now rolled out
internationally.

Whether prescription, consultation, finding or appointment: More and more
physicians and patients communicate conveniently via the practice website.
Already since the beginning of the year patient registrations with systems of
CompuGroup Medical have increased by 66 percent. The number of registered
practices also shows a steep growth curve. One reason is the seamless
integration of the CGM LIFE eSERVICES into existing ambulatory information
systems (AIS). The data get into the corresponding patient index in real time or
rather they are synchronized with the calendar in the AIS. This way all
procedures are processed in the accustomed user interface.

"Our modern online-services find their way to the front because they satisfy the
needs of both physicians and patients in the same way. They make communication
paths more convenient and cheaper" confirms Frank Gotthardt, CEO of CompuGroup
Medical AG. One in two Europeans uses the Internet daily or almost daily. A
reason why patients increasingly welcome and use the modern online services.

After the good feedback in Germany and Austria CompuGroup Medical now also
starts internationally with its online services. "Our good position regarding
ambulatory information systems in Europe offers optimum preconditions for
introducing our online-services in further countries", says Gotthardt.  The CGM
LIFE eSERVICES are currently being tailored to the needs of the several
individual markets and the legal framework in regional piloting phases. From mid
of this year they will be introduced in France, Italy, Belgium, the Czech
Republic and the USA.

A current survey shows: Internationally as well, more and more physicians are
looking for ambulatory information systems. 31 percent of French physicians
would use online services from now on. In Italy a quarter of the physicians
questioned already every fourth physician is interested in the new ways of
communication. They save time for the practice team and provide a convenient way
of communication between patient and physician. The administration effort is
considerably reduced. With the same number of personnel for example 20 percent
more patients can be serviced. 

The seamless AIS integration provides for a customary working process without
loss of information and having to get familiar with new user interfaces. The
practice team has full control of all services at all times. "I can fully
recommend CGM LIFE eSERVICES", resumes Dr Udo von den Hoff, dentist his
experiences. "If you want to offer an innovative and a progressive practice you
can't get around online services on the long term. And on the long term the
advantages for the patient are also the practice's advantages."
