I am old-school. I like things that work well, add value to my life, and last for a while. That’s why I am voting yes by April 23 for the Hospital District No. 1 levy lift.
The new electronic medical records system funded by part of this levy fits my pragmatic style and fiscal conservatism like a glove.
I want different specialists to have quick access to my growing list of meds and issues so my care is integrated and cost-effective. I want improved access so I can review my own records and make appointments at my convenience, wherever I am! Most important, I want my taxes to be used very, very carefully.
This portion of the levy isn’t glamorous like new facilities, and doesn’t make for fascinating sound bites. But if you have kids living at home, medical conditions requiring ongoing care, or a loved one who relies on you for health care support, the new EMR can make a positive difference in your peace of mind.
Ballots are due by April 23. The facts and the return on investment make this an easy “yes” for me. I hope you will agree and also vote yes.
