Script-tracking backlash

The AMA makes $40 million a year peddling information about doctors to pharma without their consent. In the face of legislation to prohibit the practice, the AMA now says that it will allow doctors to opt out. Only the procedure for opting out doesn't really mean doctors can opt out. See "Doctors Object to Gathering of Drug Data" in The New York Times.
