Additionally, eligible professionals can earn a 2% bonus for e-prescribing in 2009.

The eHealth Made Easy(TM) suite of products have been constructed with special emphasis on simplicity - they are easy to learn, have a friendly user interface, fit right into existing workflows, and only require an Internet connected PC with the Internet Explorer 7 web browser.
