Xoova Announces New Benefits to Medical Group Management Association Members.

Nationwide Directory of Doctors and Medical Services Provides New Marketing Services to Group Practices

SANTA MONICA, Calif. -- Xoova (pronounced ZU-vah), announced today its affiliation with the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) to offer new member services. "This affiliation signifies our commitment to the MGMA and to practices nationwide who want to boost their Internet presence, improve patient access and offer more patient convenience," said John Bader, VP of Business Development.

In conjunction with the MGMA 2007 Annual Conference this week, all members of the MGMA who represent physicians and medical practices will receive free, easy-to-use tools to enhance practice profiles online, offer Internet appointment scheduling, and ultimately gain more control over the information that appears about them online. Xoova representatives will be at the conference especially to assist MGMA members who want to learn more about Xoova and get access to their practice profiles on the service.

"We are pleased to have Xoova join our affiliate vendor community and to offer their services to members who have a growing need for improving their online presence and patient services. Patients' use of the Internet to find doctors and manage their health care is growing rapidly," said Steve Hellebush, Vice President of Business Development, MGMA.

"Patients of all ages are using Xoova to find us," says Lihsett Padro, Senior Surgery Patient Coordinator for Dr. Ashutosh Kacker, an Otolaryngologist in a New York City practice affiliated with Weill Cornell Medical Center. "We use Xoova because it gives patients more than just contact information - it incorporates important details about our practice that make people comfortable with becoming patients, including areas in which we have special expertise, insurance we accept and our approach to patient care."

Last month Xoova introduced the Xoova Profile Manager ( It serves as the entry point for practice managers to access and update practice profiles and offer online appointment scheduling that doesn't at all interfere or conflict with their own scheduling software. Today more than 40,000 doctors and practices benefit from enhanced profiles.
