re: Aetna Consolidates Health IT Assets
I think that itGs a smart move by Aetna into integrating all these assets into a single unit. Not only will the brand Healthagen now be more common and be able to provide a bevy of services to clients, but this way they are moving away in a sense from the Aetna brand. Companies may still know that this is an Aetna owned business, but they can be more assured that their data wonGt be sent back to Aetna as this company would be payer-neutral. Improvements in the health IT field should be made readily available and the creation of these payer-neutral IT focused companies will work to serve that purpose regardless of competition.
