Your employment with the Company and its Affiliates terminated in all capacities as of September 19, 2001 (the "Effective Date"). In that regard, you hereby resign, effective as of the Effective Date, from your positions as President and a director of the Company and from all other positions, directorships and positions that you hold with the Company or any of its Affiliates. 2. The Company will provide you with the following payments and benefits: (a) The Company will continue to pay you your base salary at the current rate of $500,000 per annum for a period commencing on the Effective Date through the third anniversary of the Effective Date (the "Severance Period"), payable in accordance with the Company's prevailing payroll practices (no less frequently than monthly). (b) For each of the three years of the Severance Period, the Company will pay you a bonus equal to $500,000 payable at the time that bonuses are paid to Company executives generally, but no later than (i) March 31, 2002 for the first year of the Severance Period, (ii) March 31, 2003 for the second year of the Severance Period, and (iii) March 31, 2004 for the third year of the Severance Period.

(d) You will continue to participate in all Welfare Plans that you participated in on the Effective Date (or reasonably equivalent benefits in the aggregate) on the same terms and conditions that would have applied had you remained in the employ of the Company until the earlier of the expiration of the Severance Period and such time as you become eligible for comparable coverage with a subsequent employer. The Company will have no obligation to continue to maintain any Welfare Plan solely as a result of the provisions of this Agreement. >PAGE> You agree to promptly notify the Company in writing in the event that you are offered comparable coverage under another employer's Welfare Plan. (e) Except as otherwise specifically provided herein, you will not be entitled to any compensation or benefits or to participate in any past, present or future employee benefit programs or arrangements of the Company or any of its Affiliates, successors or predecessors after the Effective Date, except that, if applicable, you will be entitled to receive your vested accrued benefits under the Company's Employee Stock Purchase Plan and 401(k) Plan in accordance with the terms and conditions thereof. (f) You acknowledge that the payments and benefits due to you in this Agreement resulting from your departure from the Company and its Affiliates are in lieu of any and all claims that you may have against the Company, CareInsite or any of their Affiliates, successors or predecessors (other than benefits under the Company's employee benefit plans that by their terms survive termination of employment, COBRA benefits, and rights to indemnification under certain indemnification arrangements for officers and directors of the Company), and represent liquidated damages (and not a penalty). 3. The provisions of Section 6 of the Employment Agreement are incorporated herein by reference as if such provisions were set forth herein in full. You acknowledge that, as provided in the Employment Agreement, the continuation of all of the Company's obligations set forth in Section 2(a)-(d) will cease in the event of any breach or threatened breach by you of any provision of Section 6 of the Employment Agreement or this Agreement. 4.
