Obama adds health IT to economic stimulus package

Obama adds health IT to economic stimulus package: "President-elect Barack Obama on Saturday said health information technology will be included in an economic recovery plan that is now being worked out with members of Congress.

In his Dec. 6 radio address, Obama said modernizing U.S. hospitals would be part of a major effort to finance an upgrade of the broadband infrastructure of the U.S., which he said has fallen to 15th in the world in its rate of adoption.

Together with upgrading school and education networks, “we must ensure that our hospitals are connected to each other through the internet,” Obama said, an effort he said that “won’t just save jobs, it will save lives.”

“We will make sure that every doctor’s office and hospital in this country is using cutting edge technology and electronic medical records so that we can cut red tape, prevent medical mistakes, and help save billions of dollars each year,” Obama said."
