A bleak Labor Day weekend
As we experience some of the worst unemployment statistics in the history of this country, this Labor Day weekend seems very bleak to many people. Physician are also feeling the effects of the economy as fewer patients schedule visits. CNN Money.com reports that unemployment is at a 26-year high of 9.7%. Meanwhile, Obama promises the nation that he will help people save their money. Where is our nation heading? What will happen if more jobs don't open up?
In the non-clinical world of healthcare, the biggest opportunity is unarguably in the area of health information technology or health IT. Will all the changes related to healthcare reform stimulate the economy and save our nation?
