House committee: DoD should improve Rx drug tracking
Monday - 6/20/2011, 8:59pm EDT

The report, according to Next Gov, gives Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs Jonathan Woodson two months from the time the budget is passed to deliver a report on the required steps and potential obstacles toward electronic transmission of prescription drug data.
