This is great news and so badly needed. I do have to say things appear to be getting better in the funding area, but I would still like to hear how Joe Biden and Kathleen Sebelius feel about their own records. We have a major shift here with what readers are interested in reading about and personal experiences are the best!
It would really help create a much stronger public image and build confidence if they could share some of their own personal experiences and how electronic medical records used by their doctors are showing their worth!
Where Are the PHR Mentors – Education Required as the Arizona Senior Project is Finding Out with Little Participation
Question of the day, do the physicians that Joe Biden and Kathleen Sebelius consult with for their own personal care use electronic medical records, and if they don’t, well why not! We need some mentors and this is the perfect opportunity to speak out and help healthcare reform in a positive manner. Electronic Medical Records run some of the best algorithms out there for providing information and better healthcare. BD
WASHINGTON - The U.S. government on Thursday announced grants of almost $1.2 billion to help hospitals and health care providers implement and use electronic health records.
The Obama administration has made the overhaul of the $2.5 trillion U.S. health care system the centerpiece of its domestic agenda, including the use of technology to improve efficiency and cut costs.
The grants include $598 million to set up some 70 health information technology centers to help health care institutions acquire electronic health record systems and $564 million to develop a nationwide system of health information networks, Vice President Joe Biden's office said in a statement.
