What is new with United Healthcare?
David Whichmann, CEO recently announced that the fourth quarter they planned to release their own EHR system which will roll out to 20,000,000 customers who are already using the current health wellness app.
There has been some concern in the industry that their new EHR platform could disrupt the way primary care physicians refer people to specific medical labs for testing.
At the end of 2018, investors were told that the new health portal will look a little more like an PHR (personal health record) and will likely pull data from other EHRs and combine it into their personal health record software.
