Camden, NJ, hospitals to create health-records exchange

Philadelphia Inquirer, September 22, 2009

The three major health systems serving Camden, NJ, are joining with local doctors to share health records of patients who give their permission. Cooper University Hospital, Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center, and Virtua Health—normally fierce competitors—plan to join with most primary-care providers in the city oto create an exchange giving doctors access to such records as hospital discharge summaries, lab results, medications, and X-rays.
