Healthcare IT Today and Tomorrow

Bill Crounse 2007 01 Just before the Holiday break I had the pleasure of participating in a radio program produced by ReachMD and hosted by Dr. Larry Kaskel.  As you may know, ReachMD broadcasts on XM 157 Satellite Radio.  The service boasts an entire schedule of smart programming for today's busy healthcare professionals.  Whether you are a primary care physician, medical specialist, healthcare administrator, or anyone who works in healthcare or is interested in keeping up with industry news, XM 157 will serve you well.image

In the program released this week, I share my perspectives on the adoption of IT in US healthcare compared to other industrialized nations around the world.  We also explore some of the initiatives going on here at Microsoft that are helping drive the use of IT in healthcare and some of the investments we are making to improve health around the world.  This includes the release of our consumer health platform, HealthVault, and recent acquisitions for the healthcare enterprise market such as Azyxxi and Global Care Solutions.

The programming on ReachMD is available for on-demand listening on the Net, podcast downloads, or live on XM 157.  I hope you enjoy the show.
