UPMC recommends doctors use Web to get drug samples
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, June 30, 2008
The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center has turned to a Web-based technology to help obtain sample medications for patients. The UPMC eSample Center will allow physicians to order medication through a "virtual sample closet" developed by MedManage Systems Inc. UPMC has begun sending letters describing the new program to its physician offices, outpatient sites, hospital-based clinics and pharmacies. Other letters are being sent to drug manufacturers inviting them to participate.
