EMRs Get Another Government Push: HHS is going to propose regulations that will allow hospitals to provide free or reduced-cost electronic medical record (EMR) hardware and software to physicians in an effort to speed up the process of physician adoption of EMR technology and standards. OIG is going to draft a "safe harbor" under the antikickback statute to do the same thing where electronic prescriptions are concerned. The press release is here, but the regs aren't out yet.

UPDATE: Here's the e-prescribing safe harbor. (Hat tip: Christina Solis)
