It's elementary, dear Watson

Got this in email:

"WellPoint, Inc. ... announced an agreement today to create the first commercial applications of the IBM Watson technology. Under the agreement, WellPoint will develop and launch Watson-based solutions to help improve patient care through the delivery of up-to-date, evidence-based health care for millions of Americans."

Coming on the heels of our recent post on telemedicine, it sure looks like we're in for some interesting times ahead, healthcare-wise.

UPDATE: Speaking of Anthem, good news for (some of) their MedSupp clients:

"Anthem Issues Refunds to Qualifying Medicare Supplement Members in Several States (Colorado, Connecticut, Maine, Ohio and Wisconsin) ... These refunds range from approximately $66 to $1,450 ... This specific refund is based on total claims experience."

Don't spend it all in one place...
