Proposed Legislation Could Ease Anesthesia Participation in Meaningful Use
American Society of Anesthesiologists.

If enacted, Rep. Black's legislation would exempt anesthesiologists from providing clinical summaries to patients, from being required to provide patients with electronic copies of health information and from implementing drug-to-drug and drug-to-allergy interaction checks, according to the report.
