Abstract

COMMENTARY The Bush Plan I also believe we can reduce costs, reduce preventable George W. Bush medical mistakes, and dramatically improve the delivery of The 2 major Presidential candidates were asked to answer the care by increasing the use of health information technolo- question, “How would you ensure access to health care for the gies (IT) in our health care system. America’s physicians and citizens of the United States?” The following are their answers. health care professionals are managing 21st-century medi- cine with 19th-century tools. I set an ambitious 10-year goal BELIEVE THAT ALL AMERICANS SHOULD HAVE ACCESS TO for most Americans to have electronic health records, be- affordable, high-quality health care. Rising health care cause I believe that health IT can transform health care in costs impose a burden on families and small busi- America. I have acted to accelerate the use of health IT and Inesses and put coverage out of the reach of many Ameri- challenge the private sector to meet this goal in the next 10 cans. My plan will help reduce the rising cost of health care, years by doubling the funding for testing these systems in provide new and affordable health coverage options
