Bush Pushes the "Internets" Again

The White House announced that it will propose that the federal government spend $125 million in next year's budget to test computerization of health records.
What mystifies me is why Bush thinks this is a priority. After all, medical offices DO use computer technology. California's Kaiser Permanente offshored its medical records to India: does he want the U.S. to do the same with a centralized medical registry? I mean, that's the most "efficient" thing to do, isn't it?
