Zoleeta, thank you for your comment. You are probably one of the few that understand the magnitude and impacts of inefficient processing of patient health information. Of course, there is significant technology benefit in the area of clinical diagnostics.

The idea in this post was to present the idea that eliminating waste in administrative processing, what I call "the low hanging fruit," has the potential for a significant impact on the bottom line.

I found this article to be quite interesting. I knew that some money was definitely being wasted (in the healthcare field). However, I didn't know it was $850 billion annually! EHR Systems and practically all means of Health IT has great benefits to the healthcare industry, and your article has definitely proved a major point.
