ABSTRACT
The article reports on the increase in interest in electronic medical records as a result of a $20 billion grant in the U.S. federal stimulus package. Jack Berdy of VIP Medicine said that physicians' objection to change their paperwork-based practices to digital ones will be resolved by grants from the stimulus package. Internist Michael Rothkopf stressed that such financial grant could provide strong motivation to doctors because the costs of shifting into digital range from $20,000 to $50,000.
