It is NOT in the bill. That's what some of the posters in the thread don't understand. There was a study undertaken by the FDA at some point earlier in the decade on transponders (whether linked to devices or not). It was simply a study. The person/people who wrote the original articles linked that study to the bill and made some assumptions which simply aren't true.
That being said, could the electronic records system bring a major opening for a future implementation of the mark of the beast? Quite possibly. However, this particular stretch is not it. The government, because of their foolish healthcare bill want to standardize records. Wouldn't that make sense because they are taking over medicine? They have to have means of a takeover of the industry and the record standardization will allow them to do it. Is it right? No, in my opinion. Is this the mark of the beast? No, in my opinion. But we know the mark, of some sort, is coming sooner or later.
