Program Connects Young Patients with Physicians

DECEMBER 01, 2004

Kansas City-based Cerner Corp, a provider of electronic health care records, recently unveiled a $25-million plan to provide a Web-based system connecting all children with type 1 diabetes with their physicians free of charge. In the works for a decade, the program will create personal health care records for each child, which can be accessed by the patient's family and health care provider through a secure Web site. Each record will include glucose levels, carbohydrates, and insulin injections, reducing clinical visits and possibly preventing medical problems.

The program does not require physicians or patients to have any additional software or equipment other than an Internet connection. Libraries and school health clinics may be an alternative location for households that do not have Internet access.
