UnitedHealth vs. McKesson

Solid – albeit cheerleading – take by Bloomberg on how UnitedHealth and McKesson are looking to cash in on the need among health insurers to upgrade information technology systems to meet the requirements of healthcare reform.  The article quotes a Gartner analyst stating that in general the technology push could lead to acquisitions of care management companies like Click4Care and ZeOmega.  I’ll agree with that.  I’ll also agree that healthcare reform is creating some exciting momentum.  Just remember this is not a nut cracked by simply buying a fancy, paperless care management system.  Hat tip: Credit Suisse
