Just wondering

I had a conversation yesterday with a vice president of a major national health insurer, and this person mentioned that it would be a while before health plans started listing in their provider directories whether physicians and hospitals had electronic health records. Uh, why don’t they just start asking the question now when they update the provider directories?

If payers are serious about consumer-directed health plans, they need to offer as much relevant information as possible for consumers to make informed decisions. This sounds like it should be a fairly simple step, no?
