ELECTRONIC PRESCRIBING

Our office is pleased to offer secure electronic prescribing to all of our patients. This process allows us to submit all prescriptions including controlled substances electronically to your preferred pharmacy. For this process to work smoothly you need to keep the office updated of any pharmacy changes. Also in the case of controlled substances medications are on a schedule determined at your office visit. The controlled substances prescriptions will be submitted to your pharmacy every thirty days or longer for the standard number of refills (3-4).  In the event your pharmacy will not accept an electronic prescription we can still provide you with a hand written one. According to the US Department of Health and Human Services:

“E-prescribing gives providers an important tool to safely and efficiently manage patients’ medications. Compared to paper or fax prescriptions, e-prescribing improves medication safety, better management of medications costs, improved prescribing accuracy and efficiency, increase practice efficiency while improving health care quality and reducing health care costs through the reduction of adverse drug events and increased prescribing of generic medications.”
