UnitedHealth sees new market in Middle East

By

UnitedHealth Group's Optum division is pushing into the Middle East with a joint venture it believes will open up a rapidly expanding market for its health IT services. The company says a partnership with the Abu Dhabi health system Lifeline Hospital Group is just the start in the region for its $25 billion Optum unit, which includes separate businesses focused on technology, wellness and pharmacy benefits… Rochester-based Mayo Clinic closed a cardiac clinic in Dubai in 2010, due to the recession.
