More EHR

UPDATE 1-New military electronic records to be model for US includes the helpful paragraph chock full of links.

The White House did not say whether a commercial company would help design the electronic medical record system.

There are many that design such systems, including Cerner Corp (CERN.O), Eclipsys Corp (ECLP.O), Global Med Technologies Inc (GLOB.OB), Quality Systems Inc (QSII.O) and Allscripts-Misys Healthcare Solutions Inc (MDRX.O), IBM (IBM.N), General Electric Co (GE.N), Siemens AG (SIEGn.DE) and McKesson Corp (MCK.N).

Wal-Mart Inc's (WMT.N), Sam's Club unit is offering individual doctors a package including software and Dell (DELL.O) computers.

Experts say any national system would have to connect easily to other systems while protecting privacy.
...and now we know the vendors we'll be investing in.
