Computer Maker Dell to Jump in Electronic Health Record Pool - Health Blog - WSJ

Computer Maker Dell to Jump in Electronic Health Record Pool - Health Blog - WSJ: "Another player is getting into the health IT game. Today it will be computer maker Dell who’s going to partner with hospital groups to offer electronic medical records, according to the New York Times.

Dell plans to target small practices with 10 docs or less, set-ups where the majority of U.S. docs practice. It will offer the hardware framework for these services, and partner with electronic health records software makers like eClinicalWorks to offer services. But docs in small practices largely continue to rely on paper records stuffed in manila folders."

This will dramatically improve EMR penetration !

    EMRs don't offer physicians the ability to communicate with their patient on line, while charging for their services. There are free online services such as housedoc.us, however, that provide that ability. Such services can function independently or to supplement EMRs.
