E-mailing, E-banking … E-prescribing? — Medicare offers incentives for going electronic

Succinctly defined, e-prescribing (sometimes called e-Rx) is the transmission of prescription or prescription-related information through electronic media. This article explores this technology and its advantages, including the fact that Medicare is now providing an incentive to those providers who are willing to use it.
