On Sept. 12, President Obama signed a Presidential Proclamation declaring Sept. 11 to 17, 2011, as National Health IT Week; the first presidential proclamation in history recognizing the value of using information technology to improve healthcare. And on Sept. 13, the United States Senate unanimously passed a resolution supporting the goals of National Health IT Week. Roberts, a nationally recognized expert in health policy matters, said “Leaders across the political spectrum are now realizing the value that information technology can bring to transforming our nation’s healthcare system, and I am humbled to serve as one leader of this national effort. Folks have toiled for decades to improve our healthcare system, and it is nice to finally see positive results coming to fruition.”
