The American Medical Association has had a tech-friendly couple of weeks. Last week they announced the availability of online resources to support e-prescribing efforts. They have also joined Twitter.

Milliman principal Susan Pantely published an article about the benefits of e-prescribing earlier this year. e-Prescribing has a number of efficiency and quality implications and can enable better access to necessary prescriptions for patients and better management of prescriptions for providers.
