SPOTLIGHT: Nev. docs get access to AllScripts

This week, in a move timed to coincide with the announcement that HHS is making changes to encourage the technology, AllScripts revealed a deal in which it is providing low-cost e-prescribing software to doctors who are part of Nevada's Sierra Health network. Nevada physicians who are not affiliated with Sierra will be able to get access to the software for a small monthly fee. Expect more developments like this as competition in this area of health IT intensifies. Report
