What do all of these companies have in common besides their care and technology, they are non profits so we have an alliance here with like entities. All will be exchanging medical records and of course we know a personal health record is included as well. Anyone as an example can join Mayo even if you are not seen there as a patient to store your medical records.
With the new consortium patients will be able to be seen and medical records available at any of their locations. I like this idea of the non profits working together without the for profit interference for the most part as all are patient focused and not traded on the stock exchange. Just this week the new Kaiser Permanente Showcase and Learning Center opened in Washington D.C. BD
