CMS, e-health group push e-Rx with meeting, guide

The e-Health Initiative released its A Clinician’s Guide to Electronic Prescribing at a Boston e-prescribing conference sponsored by the CMS.
The guide, clearly aimed at boosting the use of e-prescribing, was introduced Tuesday at the daylong conference, which was promoted by the CMS with full-page ads in the New York Times and Wall Street Journal. The guide differentiates between “stand-alone” e-prescribing software systems, that can either be purchased and loaded onto and then run off of a prescriber’s own computer system, and Internet-based systems where the software is accessed through a Web browser and the service is paid for through monthly fees.
