" Since I run my own small business, I'm very interested in
health care reform. You see, my tiny -- two-person -- company pays
more than four figures a month for health insurance. Ow!
"That and taxes are the two biggest expenses on my ledger.
Unfortunately, I don't see much reason for hope in the crippled
mess that has made it this far in Congress. Still, no matter what
ends up passing into law, one common theme in all the reforms is
support for electronic health records, and that's good news.
"EHR is just what it sounds like: maintaining medical records in
an electronic format. Some of my records are on papers locked in
cabinets. God help me if someone needs to know what my EKGs from a
few years back looked like. "
