Subsidiaries of UnitedHealth Group Inc. are trying to help Intuit Inc. turn its popular personal finance software into a tool for organizing health care and health insurance information.

The units of UnitedHealth, Minnetonka, Minn., and Intuit, Mountain View, Calif., will work with Hewitt Associates Inc., Lincolnshire, Ill., a large consulting firm, and several large health plans to make Intuit’s Quicken software an engine for change, the companies say.

The companies hope start introducing Quicken personal health management products in 2007.

The companies say the products will rely on “a new health care content consolidation delivery system” that will help consumers get and organize information about medical bills, insurance payments and medical records, the companies say.
