Tom Stitt commented on Brittany McLaughlin's blog post Social Media and Healthcare: Do you think we'll be charged?
"Sutter Health System charges patients $65/year to have email access to physicians. (Secure email system.) Kaiser doesn't charge for the same email access. Seems like this is a sound/simple approach. What do you think?"

Brittany McLaughlin commented on Brittany McLaughlin's blog post The New Scientist: Is the future of healthcare online?
"I agree. I can't wait to see the number of physicians who appear on twitter and the number of studies "conducted" once national health records are compiled in an online database. Imagine the plethora of data that could be leveraged!"
