Reforming Medical Records

Both Governor Patrick in last night’s State of the Commonwealth speech and President-elect Obama in an appearance on the George Stephanopoulos program last Sunday, alluded to the digitization of medical records as the type of effort they want to pursue with Federal stimulus funds. Converting medical records from paper to electronic would, in the short run, employ many to scan and digitally organize the records, and in the long-term, shifting to an all-electronic system would cut down on administrative costs and overhead, saving the system a lot of money.

It kind of sounds like what we’ve done here at the registry of deeds with our records – everything is now digital. Since we have so much experience with scanning, perhaps if the real estate market remains as dormant as it is now, we can hire ourselves out to scan some medical records.
