In the News:
NY State is taking the lead in making e prescribing mandatory.
As of March 27, 2016 it will be mandatory for practitioners, excluding veterinarians, to issue electronic prescriptions for controlled and non-controlled substances.
New York Education Law Article 137 §6810 requires that all prescriptions be transmitted electronically three years from the Department of Health’s promulgating regulations allowing for the electronic prescribing of controlled substances. These regulations became effective on March 27, 2013. Utilizing modern prescription technology has the potential to minimize medication errors for patients in New York State. Electronic prescribing also allows for the integration of prescription records directly into the patient’s electronic medical record. Electronic prescribing has the potential to reduce prescription theft and forgery.
Other States may follow NY State's e prescribing mandate.
Our Medisoft Certified Electronic Health Records (EHR) software provides a cloud based E-prescribing option, which meets the current e-prescribing guidelines.
We also offer a stand-alone e-prescribing option as well.
In both options, the patient demographics are automatically and securely synchronized with the electronic prescription system; this results in a secure and very efficient e-prescribing process for the physicians, since they do not have to re-enter the patient information prior to e-prescribing.
Please contact us by phone at 631-941-1014,
or send us an inquiry for EHR, e-prescribing software, or to schedule a free online demonstration.
If you are a NY physician:
Our NY e-prescribing solution is fully certified and it meets the NY e prescribing mandate for approved NY e-prescribing vendors.
Please do not wait until the deadline, because there will be a potential surge in e-prescribing enrollment requests, resulting in potential industry wide implementation delays.
