Bush Offers High-Tech Health Care Prescription
Reuters - President Bush on Thursday proposed increasing federal funds to promote computerized medical records, which he said would save patients' lives and money as he touted plans to overhaul the health care industry.
On the first trip of his second term, Bush said a standardized information technology system for doctors' offices and hospitals would help save lives endangered by poor or incomplete record-keeping, prescription errors and other problems.
He also endorsed enhanced technological efficiency as a means of making health care more affordable for individuals, saying improved procedures for record-keeping and prescriptions could reduce the $1.6 trillion U.S. annual health care bill by up to 20 percent. men solution plus
