IBM to use Kaiser relationship to play catch up in Health IT

Kaiser teams with IBM for $500M “real-time” health care initiative (WTN News): "MADISON - Kaiser Permanente (KP) and IBM Healthcare signed a $500 million, seven-year strategic agreement on March 13. Kaiser Permanente will continue to manage applications, including the organization's large scale EPIC Systems electronic health record, HealthConnect."

IBM appears to be rapidly moving into this space now that Janet is on board. Interesting that Kaiser kept their EPIC application off the table.
