Op-ed column urges health IT

The Washington Times, June 3, 2008

An editorial published in the Washington Times recently urges adoption of health IT. The editorial cites the Rand study, which claims the industry can save $81 billion in healthcare costs by implementing clinical IT. The federal government can help support IT by establishing standards for the technology so systems can communicate with each other, providing incentives for health IT use, and using advanced technologies in its own health programs, the editorial states.
