At an event on Capitol Hill, five of the nation’s top physician groups launched a new program to help physicians with e-prescribing.

The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the American College of Cardiology (ACC), the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) are launching an online portal — Electronic Prescribing Readiness Assessment — where physicians can follow a step-by-step process designed to help them transition from paper-based prescribing to e-prescribing.

The Washington event featured former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and Senator John Kerry.
