- E-Prescribing is a prescriber’s ability to electronically send an accurate, error-free and understandable prescription directly to a patient or pharmacy.
- E-prescription also helps to make patient care more efficient. It streamlines the process of getting the prescription to the pharmacy, dispensing the medication, and obtaining refills. Because the patients is not given a copy of prescription, the potential for losing the prescription is eliminated.
