"
Our
recovery plan will invest in electronic health records
and new technology that will reduce errors, bring down
costs, ensure privacy, and save lives
."



President Barack Obama;



Address to Joint Session of Congress
;

February 24th, 2009

 




"
Congress
has an important role in promoting HIT adoption and
providing the necessary initial and ongoing funding
mechanisms to assist physicians in solo and small
practices. Unfortunately, without adequate financial
incentives, solo and small physician practices and their
patients will be left behind the technological curve…
To achieve immediate quality and healthcare savings
through HIT, Congress must recognize the significant
financial barriers for solo and small practices. It must
offer creative solutions to stimulate adoption of HIT
where most Americans receive health care 鮠offices of
1-5 physicians."

survive; or, lead it and prosper.’

and prosper."
