Newt Gingrich to Address Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act in Upcoming ZixCorp Webcast

DALLAS, Sept. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Zix Corporation (ZixCorp(R)), (Nasdaq: ZIXI), the leader in hosted services for email encryption and e-prescribing, today announced e-Prescribing Leadership: A Webinar from Newt Gingrich, Aetna and Zix Corporation, on Monday, September 22 at 10:30 a.m. ET.

The recent passing of the Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act (MIPPA) was a defining moment in healthcare in the United States. Former Speaker Newt Gingrich was instrumental in orchestrating the support required to enact this legislation and he will make his first public address on MIPPA during the webcast.

One of the biggest remaining obstacles facing e-prescribing is the economics of getting started. Spurr will describe ZixCorp's approach to ensuring e-prescribing success and Aetna's Michael Hudson will discuss the e-prescribing efforts of one of the nation's leading diversified health care benefits companies.
