The Example of Canadian Health Care

Wiith health care reform a key priority of the Obama administration, Canada's universal health care system has its admirers south of the border.  

Writer Tom Leavitt, for example, takes a look at a paperless Canadian medical office, and likes what he sees.  

Notice what is, and is not talked about, in the article: not one word here about automating health insurance claims, reimbursement paperwork, tracking approvals from insurance companies and appeals of denied claims, optomizing the reimbursement "coding" process, or automating the bill collections process. Instead, it is all about being able to more efficiently serve the patient's medical needs, and automating the paperwork associated with keeping a patient's medical records up to date and usable.
