Another payor-sponsored EHR: This time, it's the Memphis Managed Care Corporation teaming up with MEDecision to offer beneficiaries a unified place to keep all of their physician and hospital records, lab tests, etc. The product is MEDecision's Patient Clinical Summary (PCS). You can't tell from the press release, but if participation by beneficiaries is voluntary, it would be a nice set-up: folks worried about the privacy implications can simply not participate. Although I wonder if, sorta like the arguments against privatizing Social Security, that voluntary component will be thrown under the bus by privacy Nazis.
