Electronic transcribing of prescriptions, commonly termed e-prescribing, currently accounts for roughly 5-7% of physicians’ prescriptions. Due to impending U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requirements set to be finalized and implemented by 2009, e-prescribing of prescriptions for 39 million Medicare Part D clients will be firmly established.
Hundreds of thousands of physicians’ offices will soon need to be electronically equipped to transfer prescriptions, which result in a major shift in how prescriptions are transmitted from physicians’ offices to pharmacies.
