More physician groups and managed care organizations promote online communications

San Ramon-based Hill Physicians Medical Group and Berkeley's Alta Bates Medical Group already allow patients to communicate securely with their doctors through a system designed by Emeryville-based RelayHealth, a divison of McKesson Corp.

Now Kaiser Permanente, which a year ago launched its own secure program for doctor-patient communication in Northern California dubbed "e-mail your doctor," has begun marketing the same program to parents of children under age 12.
