Wall Street Journal (subscription required), October 20, 2008

This is partly because of concerns about breaches in security and patient privacy, and because healthcare until recently was a service always performed locally.

When it does, powerful IT networks crisscrossing the globe will change the way much of healthcare is delivered.
