Congress pushes EMRs:
Sorry for the lack of postings, but I've been vacationing in the face of a hurricane. Anyway, I saw this in some email headline clippings this morning: The House has moved forward
the acronymally abominous "Protecting Records, Optimizing Treatment, and Easing Communications through Healthcare Technology Act", to be known as the "PRO(TECH)T Act." It's designed to encourage EMR usage, but sidesteps the privacy concerns.
