The Wall Street Journal's Health Blog reports on a letter sent by Republican senator Chuck Grassley "to more than 30 hospitals to ask about their experiences — including 'complications,' 'errors' and 'problems' — with health IT systems." The story continues, "Health IT is a big deal at the moment, of course, because of the tens of billions of dollars included in last year’s stimulus bill to encourage doctors and hospitals to buy and use electronic systems." The post also includes Grassley's full letter, if you want to check it out.
