Health Care System: Feds Push New Paperless Effort

Imagine if your physician could pull up all your allergies and active diagnoses on a laptop, saving you from having to recite your conditions at each visit. Imagine a prescription getting zapped electronically from your doctor to the nearest drugstore, sparing you from having to hand over a slip of paper to a pharmacist. Imagine getting your lab and test results online, just days after your doctor got them.
