Proposing a medical database

Painting a picture of an ailing health care system, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton told a symposium in Woodbury yesterday that making all medical records paperless would be one way to fix the system by reducing inefficiency, redundancy and even medical mistakes.

The Democratic senator, keynote speaker and moderator of the health care symposium sponsored by HSBC Bank told the 375 health care providers, business people and consumers at the Crest Hollow Country Club that Long Islanders, with their higher cost of living, pay even higher health care costs than the national average.
