New Hampshire governor wants eRx

Article

New Hampshire Governor John Lynch has become the latest governor to call on all physicians in his state to start e-prescribing by a certain date (Nashua Telegraph, Oct. 20, 2006). Following the lead of the chief executives of Illinois and Rhode Island, Lynch wants all New Hampshire doctors to send prescriptions online to pharmacies by October 2007.

New Hampshire Governor John Lynch has become the latest governor to call on all physicians in his state to start e-prescribing by a certain date (Nashua Telegraph, Oct. 20, 2006). Following the lead of the chief executives of Illinois and Rhode Island, Lynch wants all New Hampshire doctors to send prescriptions online to pharmacies by October 2007.

While there's no law requiring physicians to do that, the state is working with insurers to provide P4P incentives for doctors to adopt electronic prescribing, as well as EHRs.

Meanwhile, Dallas-based Zix Corp. says its e-prescribing software now runs on smart phones using the Windows Mobile operating system. The PocketScript system also offers access to medication histories online, says the company.
