Clinton calls for e-Rx

Executive Summary

Sen. Hillary Clinton also calls for the universal adoption of electronic prescribing. "I support the [Institute of Medicine's] recommendation that all prescriptions should be transmitted electronically," she says in response to the Aspen Health Stewardship Project. "In addition, I support providing financial assistance to physicians to assist in the acquisition of equipment and training." The Senate Finance Committee could consider e-prescribing as part of a legislative package that will halt Medicare physician payment cuts. Last December, committee member John Kerry, D-Mass., introduced legislation that required e-prescribing under Medicare Part D (1"The Pink Sheet," Dec. 10, 2007, p. 22)
