Dossia, a Cambridge, Mass.-based personal health records vendor targeting large employers, has several new features in a next-generation version of the software.

The new version, called Dossia Health Manager, offers teleconsultation services with a physician within 30 minutes who can pull up a consumer's PHR and add to it during the consult. Employers will subsidize the service with varying consumer out-of-pocket costs depending on their benefit plan.

Other new features include:

* Access to the Healthcare Blue Book to search for physicians to identify those with higher quality scores and reasonable pricing,

* The ability to share PHR records with physicians,

* An enhanced vaccine tracker that gives alerts about individuals who are due for vaccinations,

* Wellness-based social networking services, and

* Analytics that will automatically suggest certain wellness initiatives, such as low-fat recipes for consumers whose PHR data indicates the user is pre-diabetic.

The Dossia Health Manager will be available in the third quarter. More information is available at
