What are the benefits of e-prescribing?
- Save time and resources. Since electronic prescriptions are delivered directly to the pharmacy’s computer systems, there’s less need for pharmacy staff to manually enter data or call or fax to clarify orders.
- Improve patient safety. Pharmacists are less likely to interpret electronic orders incorrectly.
- Lower costs. Surescripts released a study finding that electronic prescribing increases first fill medication adherence by 10% and has the potential to save $140 – $240 billion over the next decade.
