More on the HIT Hearing
The Federal Workforce and Agency Organization Subcommittee has posted complete information about Friday's health information technology hearing on its website. This is the Subcommittee's fourth hearing on this topic since July 2005. Steve Barr reports in his Federal Diary column of today's Washington Post that Subcommittee Chair Jon "Porter [R Nev.] also hopes to mark up a bill [H.R. 4859] that would create electronic health records for the 8 million Americans covered by the federal employee health insurance program."
