Electronic prescription service merger

The Washington Post reports that "The nation's two electronic prescription networks plan to announce today that they are merging in an effort to encourage the adoption of their technology by doctors and patients." Interestingly, the merger is between "SureScripts [which] is owned by the National Association of Chain Drug Stores and National Community Pharmacists Association [and] RxHub [which- is owned by CVS Caremark, Express Scripts and Medco Health Solutions," the leading mail-order pharmacies and prescription benefit managers.
