Verizon CEO Announces Implementation of New Online Personal Health Records Program (WEBMD) for Company Employees

This decision will benefit over 900,000 employees.
We applaud Verizon's decision to give its employees better access to their heatlh information as well as promoting greater individual involvement in their healthcare.
Please let us know if you EHR has an interface with WEBMD's PHR. SV

"Information technology has revolutionized the way we live and could add great value to the delivery of health care in this country," Seidenberg said. "The health care industry has been on the cutting edge of technology on the research and development side, but not on the administrative side. Electronic medical records will radically change the dynamics of our health care system by providing the information needed to empower the patient. This is the first step toward an interoperable system that will seamlessly connect all pieces of the health care puzzle - patients, clinicians, pharmacies, labs, hospitals and others."
