Cancellation of medication orders already sent to the Pharmacy by eRX is only possible with less than 2% of pharmacies. The SCRIPT standard allows for change/cancel and you can possibly send it with the ordering software but less than 2% of pharmacies can receive the order. Therefore for most pharmacies it can only be done by laboriously calling the pharmacy, being put on hold, giving the information and waiting for them to do it. We tell the patient to not fill what was incorrect and let the order expire. It is not optimal.

Open source isn't just changing the way we interact with the world, it's changing the way the world interacts back with us. Case in point: open source robotics.

Last month, Jason Baker wrote a great article on alternatives to Picasa. As it happens in open source, the collaboration that followed his article (in this case, in the form of comments by lots and lots of opensource.com readers) generated a whole new list of great open source photo tools. One that kept popping up was Darktable, which I use on a semi-regular basis, so I thought I'd write up a quick intro to this fine open source, cross-platform application. read more
