President Bush reiterated his call for broad adoption of electronic health records aimed at improving healthcare quality while reducing costs. In a speech at Vanderbilt University Children's Hospital, Nashville, Bush said he hoped health records would be computerized within 10 years, a goal he set last month before appointing the first national healthcare IT coordinator. Bush was joined by Sen. Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) who, along with Republicans and Democrats in Congress, has supported efforts to help healthcare providers adopt new technologies. -- by Jeff Tieman
