    Hi Michael,

    I found the site Patient ID Now to be beneficial and informing. I agree with 510 repealed, this would make a large dent in the duplicity and erroneous patient identification that costs so much in time and safety regarding patient care. I like that this is also supported by several big hitters in the health care industry. I really can't see why the Senate would not go with the flow on this. So I will celebrate that hey did pass now!

    Thanks for sharing!
