President Obama is expected to sign the stimulus bill on Tuesday, and $19 billion of that money will go towards putting your medical records in a computerized national database.
It's estimated that less than a third of doctors currently store patients data on computers... But all of them will be required to by 2014, according to this provision in the President's stimulus plan. Here's what it means for you.... If you are traveling and get sick, or move across the country, the doctor where ever you are can access your medical records instantly through this national database.
