Michael Ashburn, Inquirer, Prescription Database
A Philadelphia Inquirer article about the Pennsylvania legislature's deliberation on a new bill to upgrade the state's prescription drug-tracking database, features comments by LDI Senior Fellow Michael Ashburn. The professor of Anesthesiology and Critical Care at the Perelman School of Medicine backs the effort. "It has excellent provisions to protect patient privacy and strikes a good balance between the pharmacy industry and doctors. This bill should save lives," Ashburn said.
