BlueCross pushes e-health technology in Tennessee

BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee, is working with Caremark Rx Inc. to boost Caremark's e-prescriptions program in an effort to advance physician adoption of the technology across the state. The companies worked to launch iScribe in Tennessee in 2004, offering free iScribe software that required physicians to install or download the program themselves. More than 60 physicians used the program. New features will include free software, personal digital assistant, printer, related hardware, installation and support services. The opening goal is to sign up 250, or nearly 7 percent, of BlueCross' network physicians that write more than 1,000 prescriptions each year.
