New regulations are now requiring drug manufacturers to electronically submit to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) such prescription drug label information as prescribing and product details for all drugs. Electronic labels will be part of DailyMed, a new interagency online health information clearinghouse that will provide up-to-date medication information free to consumers and health care workers (http://dailymed.nlm.nih.gov).
