Did You Know

Is your doctor prescribing electronically?

Electronic Prescribing, or e-prescribing,is a safe and secure way to send prescriptions electronically instead of written manually by your doctor. E-Prescribing will reduce preventable medication errors that are associated with handwritten prescriptions. Electronic Prescribing will also allow the physician to view a complete list of medications for each patient, as well as dangers in prescribing certain medications based on the patient's allergies and current prescriptions.

Pharmacies will also be able to send electronic refill requests instead of faxing or phoning in for each refill. This process will signifcantly reduce the time it takes to refill the medication as well as phone call volume for the physician's office.
