Stock market seems to like eHealth

According to an iHealthBeat article (http://www.ihealthbeat.org/Articles/2009/9/14/Prospect-of-Stimulus-Funds-Helps-Drive-Up-Health-IT-Stock-Prices.aspx), “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 🙂
