Political earthquakes, healthcare reform and health IT

iHealthBeat, February 9, 2010

The shift in power in Washington after the election of Massachusetts Republican Scott Brown to the Senate will have little direct consequence on health IT or funding, writes Bruce Merlin Fried, Esq, in this piece published by iHealthBeat. But what the administration does with health IT policy and funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and its HITECH provisions could have enormous impact on reforming healthcare, whether there is healthcare reform legislation or not, Fried writes.
