University of South Florida launches effort for paperless prescriptions
AP/Miami Herald, March 17, 2009
The University of South Florida is trying to persuade 10,000 Tampa-area doctors to ditch their prescription pads and go electronic. The university said it wants to use $18 million in federal economic stimulus money to help hire more than 100 people to work with doctors to make the change to "e-prescriptions." U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor says the effort will bring well-paying healthcare and information technology jobs to the 10-county region.
