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.

CHITREC offers e-prescribing training for providers and help in the overall implementation process by:

  • Making quality recommendations on how to achieve Meaningful Use through e-prescribing.
  • Facilitating collaboration and free flow of information between providers and pharmacists.
  • Providing eRx patient education materials and training for your clinical staff.
  • Identifying eRx loopholes and proffer remediation for better workflow.
