New Jersey Mandates Electronic Health Records

Sometimes it takes a government mandate for new technology to get adopted.

Will this be the mandate that finally forces medical records into the Digital Age?

New Jersey To Mandate Electronic Health Records

New Jersey will become the first state to mandate a move toward electronic health records under a bill now before Gov. Jon Corzine.

Find out how Google and Microsoft are revolutionizing the health care industry by digitizing patient records and medical information.

Will other states follow?
How will large data medical images (xrays, MRIs etc) be delivered over the Net?
How secure will the servers be?

What companies/technologies win or lose with this transformation?
