How did a primary care physician who was perfectly happy with paper health records become the national coordinator for health information technology? In this video from Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick's 2010 national health IT conference, Dr. David Blumenthal tells the story of how he discovered the value of electronic health records (EHR) and became a national champion of health information technology.
In his keynote speech, Dr. Blumenthal recalls specific encounters with EHRs that made him realize how health information technology could not only help him be a better physician, but also change medicine.
