Enact Health IT Now

By January 25, 2006Health Care

Hopefully 2006 will be a boom year for health information technology (Health IT). The House is expected to pass their more bare-bones approach to supporting the Leavitt/Brailer effort; the Senate passed the bipartisan Enzi-Kennedy-Frist-Clinton “Wired for Health Care Quality” act in November. We’re agnostic so long as we get a House bill to join the Senate bill in conference soon. We’ll also look to Congress for help on the appropriations front, too.
