START A COMPANY THAT TRAINS DOCTORS HOW TO "GO DIGITAL"
A national paper-free medical records an prescriptions initiative aims to change completely the way doctors prescribe and practice medicine, by digitizing the entire medical record-keeping process, from patient charts to lab reports and test results. Already, other U.S. cities, and even some states, have joined the movement at the urging of its highest-profile supporter, President Obama, who campaigned on the promise to make every government health care agency entirely electronic by 2015.
"Electronic health ambassadors" will be needed to visit every doctor's office, no matter how big or small, and teach its entire office staff how to keep electronic health records on the computer.
Allscripts is the leader in this area and is looking for sales reps...
