- Good overview article
discussing the classes of ePrescribing:
- The transmission, receipt, preparation, and delivery of prescription pharmaceuticals via the Internet.
Simply put, this piece of the business focuses on the dispensing of pharmaceuticals and does not address how the prescription order is created.
- eScriptions (aka ePrescribing)
- The analysis, verification, and creation of a prescription order using computer and communications technologies. Also called “e-prescribing.”
- In many cases, these two components are joined to provide a seamless transaction beginning at the physician–patient encounter and ending on receipt of the proper pharmaceuticals by the patient.

Palm Security Programs
- Recommended by: PDACortex/RNPalm
Me: Lock your Palm when you turn it off
Additional layers of security for your Palm
Defense: Three programs providing three levels of security
for your palm
- Same programs also recommended by PDAMD.com
- If you want to enhance the security of your PDA, there are a number of third-party applications available that provide additional functionality not provided by Palm. Most of these programs automatically lock of your device whenever it is turned off (eliminating the inconvenience of always having to remember to do it yourself) and many combine password protection with encryption to give your data maximum protection. Just a few of the more popular applications include:
- One of the simplest third-party applications, OnlyMe ensures that your device is locked whenever you turn it off (or it turns itself off when not in use). It works in a similar fashion to the Palm OS® security in that once activated, whenever the device is turned on a password must be entered. It differs however in that the password uses a six-button keypad (passwords can be from 1 to 12 digits) rather than text entry.
- Another program that ensures your PDA is locked each time it is turned off is TealLock. This application has a few more features than OnlyMe and supports alphanumeric passwords, but the core functionality is similar.
- PDADefense (formerly PDABomb)
- PDABomb provides advanced security through the use of encryption. It also has a unique feature that completely wipes the contents of your PDA (hence the name PDABomb) in the event an individual attempts to bypass the security by repeatedly entering random passwords or if more than a preset amount of time passes between
