re: EHR Vendors, Pharmacy Chains Pump Up Surescripts Network
SureScripts is doing a great job in creating interoperability between different EHRs and pharmacies. Sure the program discussed in this post is only for immunizations, but I think we'll see it expanded to other areas and services soon once the proof of concept is shown with this.

re: EHR Vendors, Pharmacy Chains Pump Up Surescripts Network
Market forces aren't always the best way to solve problems--sometimes govt intervention is the only way to go. But when it comes to interoperability and sharing patient data, Surescripts' free enterprise approach may win out over the fed's National HIE initiative.
