E-prescribing (eRx) entails directly transmitting a prescription from the provider’s electronic health record (EHR) to the pharmacy’s computer system. It can help reduce medication errors and improve the quality of patient care. Moreover, not e-prescribing can now result in Medicare penalties or incentives, so there are plenty of reasons to make the switch.

- Making quality recommendations on how to achieve Meaningful Use through e-prescribing.
- Facilitating collaboration and free flow of information between providers and pharmacists.
