Lextech CEO Alex Bratton was Highlighted in an Acumen Medical Blog Post, talking about the value of enterprise Health IT and the role it will play in the future of healthcare. Alex’s comments were taken from an earlier article he was interviewed for, “What is the Value of Health IT?” in the Electronic Health Reporter. Here’s Alex’s quote from the EHR article:

“Today, our personal healthcare information is locked away in the doctor’s office. You have to jump through hoops to gain access to your own medical history. Technology, particularly mobile apps, will empower patients to take control of their own healthcare by giving them access to both health records and billing information. Instead of just saying, ‘yes’ to a procedure because a doctor suggests it, you’ll see different options, both financial and care related, make educated decisions about how to proceed and knowing how it will impact both your health and your bank account.”
