WASHINGTON, D.C., Dec. 6, 2006 -- As
the cost of providing health care continues to rise, Applied Materials,
BP America, Inc., Intel Corporation, Pitney Bowes, Inc. and Wal-Mart
are funding an independent nonprofit institute to develop 'Dossia,' a
Web-based framework through which

U.S.
employees, dependents and retirees can maintain lifelong personal
health records. Together, the companies will provide this benefit to
more than 2.5 million individuals across the United States starting
next year.
