One of my readers sent me the following email…

New England Journal of Medicine survey:
46% of primary care physicians would quit if Obamacare becomes law!

I’m not sure I agree with the statement. Should I? If this does happen, how will it affect the EMR industry? Should EMR vendors should be preparing for the healthcare reform (Obamacare) in their projections?
