Electronic prescribing

Electronic prescribing

The use of computer technology by doctors and other medical practitioners to write and send prescriptions to participating pharmacies electronically, rather than by faxing or calling a pharmacy, or giving patients handwritten prescriptions to take to the pharmacy. E-prescribing is already evolving into automated systems that can create and refill patients’ prescriptions, manage their medications and view their history, connect to a pharmacy or dispensary, and integrate prescription data with an electronic medical record system. Also known e-prescribing.
