Press release:

Social Security to Fund $24 Million in Contracts for Electronic Medical Records [socialsecurity.gov]

Social Security is looking for health care providers, provider networks, and health information exchanges to participate in its Medical Evidence Gathering and Analysis through Health Information Technology (IT) program.

Here's the privacy grabber in this initiative:

They will require awardees, with a patientís authorization, to send Social Security electronic medical records through the Nationwide Health Information Network (NHIN). The NHIN, a safe and secure method for receiving instantaneous access to electronic medical records, is an initiative of the Department of Health and Human Services and is supported by multiple government agencies and private sector entities.

It wasn't too long ago that Google Health [webmasterworld.com] was introduced and discussed.
