As Bush and Kerry square off on the issue of health care, the Secretary of Health and Human Services Tommy Thompson underscores the importance of health IT in the Bush administrations approach.

"The President knows more needs to be done, particularly when it comes to lowering the cost of health care so that it is accessible to more people," Thompson commented.

"The President is investing significantly in health care technology to bring down the cost of delivering medical care, and he continues to press for medical liability reform as frivolous lawsuits and defensive medicine continue to drive up health care costs."
