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.
