State roundup: California doctors oppose lethal-injection proposal


A look at state legislation affecting primary care doctors.

The CALIFORNIA Medical Association lashed out at a proposed regulation from the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation in July that would require physician involvement in lethal injections of prisoners. While the regulation does not explicitly require a physician to administer the injection, it does recommend a physician evaluate a prisoner prior to execution and declare the inmate dead after the injection.

MISSISSIPPI: More than 20,400 physicians in the state who accept Medicaid patients will have free access to a web-based electronic health record system and e-prescribing application, the state and an EHR company reported in August. The EHR will be pre-populated with claims and demographic data supplied by Medicaid.
