Panel description: The Obama administration is in the process of rolling out $20 billion in stimulus funds to spur universal adoption of electronic medical records – a story with many moving parts as federally mandated deadlines approach. David Blumenthal, the administration’s outgoing health IT coordinator, will give a progress report on the national effort while health care providers in two very different settings – frontier rural and inner city – share insights from the front lines of clinical practice.
