Hartford, Ct.-based Aetna has expanded the availability of Atlanta-based RelayHealth’s secure online messaging and consultations nationwide, including specialists.

Members and physicians, now including physicians in more than 30 medical specialty categories, participating in most of Aetna’s medical plans nationwide, will have access to RelayHealth’s webVisit consultations, the companies claim. These clinically structured online interviews offer patients a convenient, affordable and efficient way to report non-urgent symptoms, the company touts. Physicians, in turn, can deliver timely, informed responses.

Aetna is a diversified healthcare benefits company that serves approximately 36.4 million people with information and resources to help them make better informed decisions about their healthcare. RelayHealth, the connectivity business of McKesson Corp., operates as a neutral partner in an open network environment, offering connectivity and integration among all organizations, systems, and solutions.
