Thanks to the $19 billion designated for health-care information technology in the recent stimulus bill, electronic health records (EHRs) have garnered a great deal of attention in the past few weeks. The bill sets aside $17 billion in incentives for physicians and hospitals that use qualifying EHRs beginning in 2011, and $2 billion for the development of standards and best-practice guidelines over the next two years.
Kudos to the gentleman… unfortunately Myca is years ahead of them. According to @JayParkinson we should be seeing the fruits of their labor within the next few weeks. Will an EHR/EMR that actually functions the way a physician thinks be upon us in 2009. I hope so.
