Medicare selects 4 companies for a PHR pilot program

Medicare announced their selection of 4 companies to run a pilot PHR (personal health record) program in Utah/Arizona. So who are the companies? I don't think you'll be surprised to hear that Google Health is one of them. The other 3 are: HealthTrio LLC,, and PassportMD.

This collaborative pilot should provide some really exciting results! There is such a need to improve health information management on the consumer end. As IT capabilities improve, so much can be done to improve public health by empowering consumers and helping clinicians have access to vital health data.

More information about the selected companies may be found here:
