Accelerating the Use of Electronic Prescribing to Improve Health Care

How appropriate for October, which is National Pharmacy Month! There's an effort to help the U.S. health care system transition from a largely paper-based system of prescribing to electronic prescribing, in order to support more effective medication management. The eHealth Initiative in collaboration with the Center for Improving Medication Management, offers a series of guides and reports have been issued over the last several months to support the effective adoption of e-prescribing to drive improvements in the quality, safety and effectiveness of health care:

  1. Electronic Prescribing: Becoming Mainstream Practice
  2. A Clinician's Guide to Electronic Prescribing
  3. A Consumer's Guide to Electronic Prescribing
  4. A Guide for Health Care Payers to Improve the Medication Management Process
