Online Health Records in Minnesota

Pin It Now!

Pushing health records online has been a main priority for Google, Microsoft, and Aetna. Now Minnesota’s current governor, Tim Pawlenty, is in the process of releasing a bill that would enable 50,000 state employees to access their health records online by next year, and everyone in the state by the year 2011 according to this latest post on the Wall Street Journal Blog.

Tim Pawlenty mentions:

“We need to put consumers in charge. We need to give them the tools so they can make good decisions”

Will this development in PHR help bring about a change in how pharma companies are reaching health consumers?
