Six healthcare organizations have teamed up to develop a 56-page how-to guide on electronic prescribing. The guide includes information on meeting the federal criteria for meaningful use of electronic health-record systems—a necessary precursor to receiving federal health IT subsidies—as well as details on new Medicare e-prescribing requirements and frequently asked questions about adopting health information technology.
Healthcare groups release e-prescribing guide
The 2011 Clinician's Guide to e-Prescribing was developed by the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American College of Physicians, the American Medical Association, the Center for Improving Medication Management, the e-Health Initiative and the Medical Group Management Association. It updates a similar publication that was released in 2008.
