In 2008, electronic transcribing of prescriptions, commonly termed e-prescribing, accounted for roughly 5% to 7% of physicians’ prescriptions. With the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requirements finalized and implemented in 2009, e-prescribing of prescriptions for 39 million Medicare Part D clients has become firmly established. 

e-Prescribing: The Electronic Transformation of Medicine will help health professionals through this change in electronic medical records and health information technology. It provides a thorough summary of the key issues surrounding electronic prescribing in the United States by explaining the limits, cautions, and analyses necessary for successful implementation and patient satisfaction. The benefits and disadvantages of e-prescribing are presented, and the influence of e-prescribing on patients, pharmacists, and physicians is detailed. This book also discusses the future of e-prescribing, focusing on how it will affect the health industry professionally and economically. Current systems for implementing e-prescribing are explored, as are the current software and hardware requirements, the global implementation of e-prescribing, and the components that could expedite the use of e-prescribing in the United States.
