A new electronic prescribing guide aims to educate physicians about the benefits of this new tool and to facilitate their transition from paper prescriptions to e-prescriptions.
The eHealth Initiative, a nonprofit group that promotes technology as a means to improve health care quality, crafted A Clinician's Guide to Electronic Prescribing in collaboration with the American Medical Association, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American College of Physicians, the Medical Group Management Association, and the Center for Improving Medication Management. The guide is available online (http://www.ehealthinitiative.org/assets/Documents/e-Prescribing_Clinicians_Guide_Final.pdf).
