Medicare incentives may spur more Tennessee doctors to e-prescribe
Less than one percent of Tennessee doctors prescribe medication electronically, but some health experts believe that Medicare payment incentives slated to start next year will spur more Tennessee doctors to do so. The number of Tennessee doctors who e-prescribe is expected to double this year, due to one-time state grants of $3,500 that are available to doctors who e-prescribe for two years, according to representatives from the state's eHealth Council.
