Sorry I’ve been delinquent here…I’ve been focused on a big story, and I don’t seem to have enough bandwidth to do a good job blogging at the same time.
But until I’m out from under, here’s a healthcare question for you to chew on. If you had a choice, which would you rather have?
1) Fully electronic health records, at a cost of $100 billion over the next ten years, or;
2) A full cure for Alzheimer’s, same cost and timeframe.
Please pick either #1 or #2. Feel free to substitute in any other medical advance, if you’d like.
