NYT: Medicare to Provide Doctors with Free Software

According to the New York Times, Medicare will provide doctors with a free version of Vista, the record-keeping software used by the Department of Veterans Affairs.

The Times states, "There is no one in medicine who does not consider it both crucial and long overdue to have electronic records in doctor's offices and hospitals."

However, the Sydney Morning Herald has reported that there have been privacy breaches in Australia's electronic medical records system.
