If you're a physician or medical practice who is thinking about investing in an electronic medical record system, you might want to wait a month and see what CMS does. According to this article
, the Medicare program is going to start giving its Vista EMR system away, for free. I don't know a lot about it, but apparently Vista is used by the VA, and can be a difficult system to install and operate. But if it's mostly free (I think practices will still have to hire someone to install it for them),
If you're a medical practice that just spent a lot of money on an EMR system, well, sorry.
