Intel to insist on PHR for their employees

Intel to insist on PHR for their employees: "Early reactions are mixed to a multimillion-dollar plan by five major corporations to distribute personal health records (PHRs) to employees, with some calling the idea a boon to interoperability of health information, while others say such electronic records threaten patient privacy.

On Wednesday, Applied Materials, BP America, Intel, Pitney Bowes, and Wal-Mart Stores will jointly announce 'a major initiative to help employees better manage their healthcare, improve communications between doctors and patients, and reduce inefficiencies in the healthcare system,' according to a media advisory. "

Does Intel know something you don't ? If smart companies like Intel are asking employees to keep PHRs, shouldn't all of us be considering this option ?
