More Milwaukee health systems moving to electronic health records
Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, October 7, 2008
Six healthcare systems in the Milwaukee area are each putting in the building blocks needed for electronic health records, and that work could accelerate in the next few years. So far, they have spent more than $200 million on the effort, and they could spend hundreds of millions more to complete and refine their systems. Aurora Health Care alone estimates it has spent $150 million in the past decade on EHR projects.
