The Health Insurance EHR
The Health Care Blog

Kaiser Health News recently published excerpts of an interview with the CEO of Aetna, Mark Bertolini. Interesting article and interesting subject, but one thing Mr. Bertolini said in connection with Aetna’s acquisition of Medicity, a vendor of Health Information Exchange (HIE) platforms, caught my attention: “We are as much a health information technology company as an insurer”. United Healthcare has also been engaged in significant HIT acquisitions for quite some time. They bought an EHR, Care Tracker, and an HIE vendor, Axolotl, amongst other things.
