ePrescribing – Manage Patient Safety

Electronic Prescribing (ePrescribing) software allows providers to use a computer or handheld device to electronically access patient prescription benefit information, medication history, and route prescriptions to the patient’s pharmacy.

A proven way of enhancing patient safety while reducing administrative costs, benefits of ePrescribing include:

  • Reducing potentially harmful drug interactions by alerting physicians of possible risks.
  • Eliminating medication errors due to illegible handwriting.
  • Providing physicians with formulary information when writing the prescription, resulting in an increase in the use of generics and preferred drugs, which translates into savings for the patient.
  • Furnishing physicians with benefit plan details at the point of prescribing so that changes will not be needed when the prescription is presented at the pharmacy.
