More from Blue e-prescribing...loss of compensation...BD 

The state's largest medical insurer said yesterday that it will require all the state's hospitals to fully install a computerized medication ordering system within four years or face a loss of lucrative payouts from an incentive program promoting good-quality care.

The announcement by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Massachusetts was released at the public unveiling of a report that found that one of every 10 patients admitted to six Massachusetts community hospitals suffered serious and avoidable medication mistakes, including severe allergic reactions or dangerous drug interactions.
