Kaiser backs Microsoft’s patient-data plan
New York Times, June 9, 2008
Kaiser Permanente is endorsing the drive toward consumer-controlled personal health records in a partnership with Microsoft. The partnership will begin with a pilot project open to Kaiser's 156,000 employees, which will run until November. If successful, the product linking Kaiser's patient information with Microsoft's Health Vault personal health-record service will be offered to Kaiser's 8.7 million members.
