    Welcome news for enhancement. I suppose slight delays may be nothing compared to the major delays already experienced for anyone who goes to emergency care for any reason. Although technology is always welcome, I would prefer to see more empathetic and timely care at the emergency department than people running around with tablets and laptops. I don’t see why we can’t work on both.

    Fabulous news for patients. This progress will hopefully upload patients’ medical record at the touch of a button thus expediting the necessary treatment. Very proactive work.
