Health Leaders Media - John Commins

Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa has asked 31 of the nation’s largest hospitals and health systems to detail their problems implementing the $19 billion federal HIT program that was launched last year. Grassley said that his 11-question survey is a response to complaints he’s heard from providers about administrative complications, formatting and usability issues, errors, and interoperability roadblocks.
