E-Prescribing Tools Touted


Adverse drug events and low adherence to medication regimens are two concerns addressed by the newest electronic prescribing tools that will be implemented by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for Medicare Part D recipients.

A third tool relates to formulary and benefit transactions. Back in January 2006, CMS approved standards to help facilitate e-prescribing. Under the Medicare Modernization Act, CMS was charged with testing additional tools and standards.

The final e-prescribing rule was published in the Federal Register on April 2.
