re: Fed Health IT Spending: $6.5 Billion By 2016
Someone should take this article to a current political debate and just put it on the table. This is a lot of money, in a well that is drained from all the other infrastructure the government supports. If the initial investment pays off, surely it will, but there is a ton of maintenance costs and upgrades that go along with every investment.
