Aetna Introduces Powerful, Interactive Personal Health Record based on ActiveHealth's CareEngine System

Now if they could build interfaces with CCHIT certified EHRs and make it portable, imagine the possibilites! SV

HARTFORD, Conn., October 3, 2006 — Aetna (NYSE: AET) today announced the launch of its new CareEngine® System-powered Personal Health Record (PHR) that provides members with online access to personal information, including individual personalized messages and alerts, detailed health history, and integrated information and resources to help members make informed decisions about their health care.

Aetna’s PHR is the first to utilize the CareEngine System, which is a proprietary technology platform developed by ActiveHealth Management, a branded, standalone business of Aetna. CareEngine continuously scans an individual’s health data and claims information against highly respected sources of medical literature, and alerts consumers and doctors about possible urgent situations and opportunities to improve care. The CareEngine-powered PHR automatically combines detailed, claims-driven information gathered across the health care spectrum - such as physician office, lab, diagnostic treatment and prescriptions – to generate a comprehensive personal health record. This information is processed by CareEngine to generate personalized health care alerts and messages that are delivered directly to the member.
