GOP front-runners see market solutions for healthcare

Government Health IT, January 4, 2012

The Republican candidates starting the long-haul through the primary season have one thing in common—they all want to repeal the health reform law, the Affordable Care Act. It is the lens through which they view healthcare issues. But most of the candidates have offered few details on their websites about what they would replace it with in order to increase the number of those insured, reduce healthcare costs, and improve care quality. Likewise, they also have given little indication about whether they would continue to provide incentives to hospitals and physicians for adopting electronic health records.
