Report Anticipates Cost Savings From Online Health Care Services – iHealthBeat – This sounds promising; however, like other estimates of cost-savings of health information technology, a careful examination of the methodology is necessary. Unfortunately, I cannot find the actual study online, but I did e-mail the folks at Milliman to see if I could examine it. if anyone else has (legal) access to it or has reviewed it, please feel free to post a comment.
update 10/09/08: I contacted Milliman and this report is not available for public review. If I am in a situation to review it, I will repost that information here. In the meantime, I am going to reserve judgement on the use of this study’s findings for future work. The conclusions certainly seem compelling, so I hope to get the opportunity to review it.
