The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act

Posted Feb 11 2009 2:49pm
Today the Senate voted 61-37 to approve the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, which includes important investments in health information technology and in research on the comparative effectiveness of various health care tests and treatments. These investments will quickly increase jobs in healthcare and eventually improve the quality of health care for every American. It's a milestone achievement.
