Just how much is Health IT going to help with reform, well it is already helping, but organization and implementation is the key.  One big problem, low tech literacy stated in the video.  About 30% of hospitals are not using electronic medical records and it is a long term commitment, no immediate gratification here and never has been, takes time.  Technology rolls on so now it’s just a matter of figuring out how to fund it and implement.  To stay in the 70s, is not an option as there’s whole world of other countries on the technology train and we do not want to be left behind.  Technology will continue to move on, with or without funding, it’s a matter of who will have it and benefit.  BD
