EDIT Jan 20, 2014: I sent Jonathon Schwartz a link to this blog post and received a prompt response over email. I have edited the text of this post in a few places to point out some the issues he raised. He was kind enough to offer a fuller demo, which I have accepted. I will update this post after that as well. For now go to the end of the post for a fuller discussion of his comments.
CareZone is a company run by Jonathon Schwartz – the former CEO of Sun. At first glance it appears like yet another crack at solving the Personal Health Records (PHR) problem. The PHR space has been a tough domain for companies to get a grip on, with even well funded attempts like Google Health being forced to shut shop, while still leaving other behemoths with deep pockets like Microsoft HealthVault to contend with. So what is this upstart all about, and is it worth your time? Let’s take a look.
