While as of late, electronic health records (EHR) companies have had a difficult time as health-care facilities are slow to convert from paper-based records systems, one takeaway from the J.P. Morgan conference yesterday that Motley Fool health-care bureau chief Brenton Flynn noticed was in Quality Systems' (NASDAQ:QSII) presentation, which noted a big catalyst for health-care professionals to convert coming in the near future. In this video, Brenton outlines the details of the act that was passed in 2009 that will have a big impact on this industry, and when investors can expect to see that catalyst taking effect.
The relevant video segment can be found between 11:11 and 13:16.
