Americas Business with Mike HambrickThis week on “America’s Business with Mike Hambrick” we delve into health-care technology, examine the best ways to promote fuel efficiency, and review the just-completed term of the U.S. Supreme Court.

Health IT Now! is a new coalition that promotes affordable and high-quality health care through increased use of information technology. Co-chairman Nancy Johnson, the former U.S. Representative from Connecticut, joins host Mike Hambrick to discuss how government can pave the way for more IT in the U.S. health care system.

A bipartisan bill seeks to encourage fuel efficiency while respecting consumer choice and the strengths of the U.S. auto industry. Representatives Barron Hill (D-IN) and Lee Terry (R-NE) stop by to explain how their bill, H.R. 2927, achieves reasonable corporate average fuel economy standards, or CAFE standards.

The U.S. Supreme Court handed down many decisions in the just-completed term affecting the private sector, and many observers say that business did very well. Here to cover some of the high-profile business cases is David Savage, Supreme Court reporter for The Los Angeles Times.

Our “Women in Business” segment features Sherryl Welsh Hyman, senior vice president at Robert Bosch LLC. Renee Giachino of the American Justice Partnership gives us the highlights of the week in tort reform, and the NAM’s Hank Cox recalls “The Way it Was.” NAM President John Engler closes with “The Last Word” on unsafe Chinese imports.
