Tech firms in a fever about health - USATODAY.com

Tech firms in a fever about health - USATODAY.com: "IBM, Intel, Microsoft and other tech companies are increasingly betting that the health care industry will help them grow as their traditional markets mature.

Americans spent almost $2 trillion on health care in 2005, according to the most recent study from the Department of Health and Human Services. Yet, many doctors and nurses 'still use pen and paper and clipboards' to record patient data, says Scott Eckert, CEO of PC-maker Motion Computing."

Lots of money to be made by clever companies who can help doctors ( and patients) to get their act together !
