    It will degrade care since I will not even be able to treat a simple recurrent UTI unless I am at the office with a registered computer. Don’t get that UTI on a weekend.

    I have been e-prescribing all prescriptions since March 2015 and it is an enormous time- and energy-saver. I use free-standing Allscripts e-prescribe.

    Every paper Rx now is already on a uniquely bar-coded state-supplied Rx blank. Every Rx is already capable of being traced. If this is to prevent fraud or capture criminals, the state ALREADY has enough information. This is just going to benefit big PHARMA and the computer industry, at the expense of doctors’ and patients’ time & money.

    It takes 2 seconds to write a script, now I have to log in, type patient’s name, address, etc., find their pharmacy and then type in the script. Just another new time consuming hassle.
