As part of the agreement, CollaborateMD's physician customers will have access to RelayHealth's reimbursable webVisit® consultations and other physician-patient communications services such as prescription refills and renewals, results delivery, requests for appointment scheduling and referrals, health education information, and more.

"We are thrilled to partner with RelayHealth to provide our physicians the industry's most advanced Web communications tool proven to enhance care, convenience and collaboration with patients on non-urgent practice procedures."
