Electronic Medical Records
(wfcr) - While it's hard to know how health care legislation moving through Congress will ultimately look, one thing is sure: the Obama Administration has committed $19 billion to help physicians and hospitals begin to use electronic medical records. Like with health care reform, Massachusetts is ahead of the game. By law, medical practices have until October 2015 to make the switch. That may seem like lots of time, but converting to electronic records can take years. WFCR's Susan Kaplan reports. © Copyright 2017, wfcr
