State of the Union: Bush Pushes IT to Reduce Healthcare Costs

ATASCADERO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 1, 2007 -- Anywhere MD, INC. (PINKSHEETS: ANWM)

President Bush during his State of the Union address last Tuesday night called for greater use of electronic medical records and other healthcare information technology as part of a larger healthcare plan and told Congress that healthcare information technology should be advanced to reduce costly medical errors and he urged the use of healthcare IT to promote healthcare price transparency.

For the fourth consecutive year, President Bush used the State of the Union address to express his support for electronic health records to bring down medical costs and improve care.

"There are many other ways that Congress can help. We need to expand Health Savings Accounts, help small businesses through Association Health Plans, reduce costs and medical errors with better information technology, encourage price transparency and protect good doctors from junk lawsuits by passing medical liability reform. And in all we do, we must remember that the best health care decisions are made not by government and insurance companies, but by patients and their doctors," Bush said.

HIT is receiving bipartisan support, with numerous policymakers embracing it as a primary opportunity for improving the cost and quality of the nation's healthcare delivery.

In 2004, Bush called for most Americans to have an electronic record of their healthcare within a decade. "We will make wider use of electronic records and other health information technology to help control costs and reduce dangerous medical errors," Bush said.
