Stock market seems to like eHealth

According to an iHealthBeat article (, “the promise of new funding has helped fuel recent growth in the market for health information systems”. The article notes that “Health IT stock prices increased by 30% during the first half of 2009, compared with a 2% gain by Standard & Poor’s 500 index and a 16% growth in the Nasdaq stock market, according to a July report by Healthcare Growth Partners”.

Amazing what senior political belief in the power of IT to help transform healthcare can do 🙂
