Health I.T. Legislation
Never before has Congress been so focused on legislation affecting information technology (I.T.) in health care. In fact, Congress is currently reviewing and evaluating several separate health information technology bills aimed at speeding the adoption of Electronic Health Records. MEDITECH sees the government initiative to create an electronic infrastructure which will allow patient records to be shared across communities and perhaps on a nationwide basis as a welcome extension of our mission.
We will continue to post news updates in this section of Industry and Press as our industry gains more press on a number of bills and emerging policies introduced this year to promote health care technology.
