Readers may turn their attention to the Federal Register, outlining the plan as part of the ARRA stimulus package to develop Regional Extension Centers for assisting in developing Health Information Exchanges and assist in the build out of EMRs, and interoperability amongst providers. This 'small tome' of the register is largely unreadable and unintelligble. The facts are in there somewhere if you are not prone to migraine and/or presbyopia. The goals and mandates are in there, whether they will truly be funded, and/or pursued is up to doubt.
Certainly the Obama Administration talks the talk, and may walk the walk. It remains to be seen whether regional differences and serious reservations which remain will impede the flow chart.
