law and electronic storage

Anybody ever hear of any laws that mandate medical facilities must use
electronic storage? I don't care if they are local or federal or even
foreign.


We have a local physician who believes such a law exist or will be
coming soon. I've never heard of such a law that requires hospitals and
nursing homes to use electronic storage and retrieval of medical
records. I've seen many that mandate how that information is stored and
secured.

No...I think more time is spent on naming bills vs creating the
content. 🙂

Novell....it does a server good!

Nope. I believe it's a rule that all bills must have cute acronyms. 😛
