A White House report called “The Job Impact of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan” (a.k.a. the stimulus package) forecasts 50,000 new IT jobs by the end of 2010, writes Fortune’s Anne Fisher in her March 27 Ask Annie column. That’s thanks in large part to incentives to digitize health records, she writes.
