re: Michigan Health Information Network Harnesses Salesforce.com
I did find that odd as well. Usually when talking about Cloud services, privacy and security are the biggest issues. I wonder what sort of security is offered by the Salesforce system. I cant imagine that it is anything petty though, as they are trusting it with a lot of patient health information and I'm pretty sure they have done their research.

Interesting that they are putting patient data in the Cloud and neither the word Privacy nor Security appear in the article...

Do you think this is an appropriate application for the Salesforce cloud?
