A Message from President Obama Commemorating National Health IT Week
“During National Health IT Week, we recommit ourselves to improving the health of our citizenry using the breakthrough technologies of our time and reaching for the next frontier of innovation…Because of our collective efforts, 97 percent of our Nation’s hospitals and three-quarters of doctors are using electronic records to care for their patients…These efforts help advance our Administration’s goal of fostering the seamless and secure flow of electronic health information when and where it is needed most. Though there is more to be done to realize a healthcare system that fits each of our needs, I am confident that if we continue working together, we can build a future of greater health and prosperity for coming generations.”
President Barack Obama, commemorating National Health IT Week
Promote the National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM). Get involved and do your part! This is a job for everyone, make an effort to care! The theme for this year is “Our Shared Responsibility”. NCSAM will be observed in October, but make it part of your practice to start today.
