How will the $600 million move to an electronic health infrastructure reshape the U.S. healthcare delivery system,  training of the U.S. healthcare workforce and federal government's approach to health care access and delivery? Will electronic health records, health information exchanges and personal health records, bust existing silos to improve coverage? How will the public and private sectors and government adapt? Members of our expert panel will discuss the process and the implications — the benefits and the challenges to individuals, systems and organizations.
