A Big Stimulus Boost for Electronic Health Records

Wiring up physicians from small practices will be one of the biggest hurdles.

Physicians and information specialists across the country are feverishly figuring out how to best prepare for the impending availability of $19 billion designated for health-care IT spending in the newly signed stimulus bill. Broadly deploying electronic health records (EHRs), they say, will require special support for small private practices across the country.

In my humble opinion we need to fix things like the vulnerability of DNS servers and SSL certificates, before something like this goes into effect.

I’m most worried about the SSL certificate attacks where someone can spoof secure parts of your site while being a go-between, and the root certificate keys that were brute forced because of an MD5 limitation.
