ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the health information technology (HIT), a provision of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) that aims to provide updated drug information in the U.S. It notes the struggle of healthcare experts for electronic systems to handle patients' medical records but the inability of HIT systems make it more difficult to achieve. It mentions the initiatives of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to modernize information systems and expand access to drug safety.
