An Interview with the Connecticut State Medical Society-IPA Executive Director, Ken Lalime.
Sponsored by Emdeon
E-prescribing remains near the top of the list of technology issues in healthcare. In this podcast, Ken Lalime, Executive Director of the 7,000 physician Connecticut State Medical Society – IPA, offers his take on this constantly evolving topic. Ken has devoted a great deal of time and energy to analyzing the prospects for e-prescribing for CSMS-IPA, and is also responsible for evaluating the e-prescribing products that the IPA makes available to its members. For example, CSMS-IPA has partnered with Health Net for the last two years to provide its physician members with access to Emdeon ClinicianRx e-Prescribing software. Ken brings to the conversation not only the perspective of the medical society, but his experiences as a former practicing pharmacist and what he learns from his colleagues and friends, who are practicing pharmacists.
