Dell Takes Health Care Online

Business Week writes:

Dell [announced] Apr. 10 that it is becoming the largest U.S. employer to offer workers electronic health records that track their insurance claims and drug prescriptions, which the computer giant says is a key step toward letting its 26,000 staffers coordinate their own care in a bid to improve medical safety and contain costs.

Tre McCalister, a program manager in Dell’s benefits group, says that as new information is added to a worker’s personal health record, the system will send out automated alerts about the kind of care that patient should get next.
