Electronic Prescribing

Illegible handwriting leads to dispensing errors, which can, in some cases, radically impact patient safety.

Electronic prescribing, or e-prescribing generates prescriptions using electronic devices, eliminating the need to write a prescription manually. These prescriptions can be transmitted electronically to the patient’s pharmacy, or printed and provided to the patient, greatly reducing the risk of dispensing errors.

E-prescribing must be powered by comprehensive, up-to-date, and user-friendly drug content to gain user-acceptance and to avoid unintended errors. FHP Pharmacy Services has the content and tools to make Electronic Prescribing a reality within your organization.
