University of Iowa researchers said becoming a parent doesn't prod adults to eat healthier but also doesn't have unfavorable effects on their diet.

AHA comments on achieving EMR adoption goals
The meaningful use program for EMR adoption is too ambitious, the American Hospital Association wrote in a letter to HHS.

Most physicians are skeptical about ACOs, survey finds
Most doctors responding to a WebMD/Medscape survey expressed doubt about accountable care organizations and some other health care law provisions. Of the 24,000 survey respondents, 52% said they think ACOs will lead to reduced income, while two-thirds said they don't believe the law's reform goals can lessen the need for tests, treatments and procedures.
