In response to Joseph Conn's "AHIC wants to mandate Medicare e-prescribing":
This would be a fine idea, but who's going to pay for it? Reimbursement is being continually constrained while costs for additional requirements and demands keep rising.
Not only is there a cost for additional hardware and software, but there's a cost in training staff and doctors. There never seems to be consideration given to those issues.
