eHealth Initiative Launches Interactive Application
This eHealth Initiative looks like it has some pretty good promise. I espescially like the statistics given at the beginning about the effect that EMR and Healthcare IT could have on the healthcare expense throughout the nation. I expect to see a lot more of these Healthcare initiatives to come out of the woodwork.

Electronic Health Records and the Future of Automated Smart Communications
Smart communications is a great concept in EMR and EHRs. EMR vendors better make sure they integrate this. I see this as a possibly defining characteristic for EMR vendors trying to differentiate themselves.
