Ratings: (0)|Views: 62|Likes:
How did we get to this point in health IT and what were the policies that helped shape the journey along the way? The Office of the National Coordinator's for Health IT provides insights on the government's commitment to health IT and electronic health records - from former President George W. Bush's endorsement of health IT back in 2004 to President Obama's commitment by signing the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act into law back in 2009. Learn about the changing role of health IT and how it will progress in the future - from the paper records of pre 2009, to the HITECH Act of 2009, and into the EHRs and HIE's of 2014.
