California Doctors to Get Wired in State's Largest e-Prescribing Initiative
Date:6/17/2009

e that e-Prescribing is the first step to wiring health care, and that working well with doctors is essential to e-Prescribing's success. Our initiative will help us identify how to best transition to technology solutions that will help doctors improve outcomes and lower costs." said John P. Driscoll, Medco's President of New Markets.

"I believe e-Prescribing used at this broader level will help ensure patient safety on several fronts," said Leslie A. Margolin, president of Anthem Blue Cross. "This tool will help to eliminate the danger of handwriting misinterpretation or having incomplete patient information. e-Prescribing can also flag drug-to-drug interactions and allergies at the point of care."

"e-Prescribing reduces medication errors, lowers prescription drug costs and decreases administrative costs for physicians and pharmacies," said Nancy Stalker, vice president, pharmacy benefit management, Blue Shield of California. "At Blue Shield of California, we are committed to improving the quality and accessibility of health care, and we expect this pilot program to help speed the adoption of e-Prescribing throughout California."

e-Prescribing uses an automated data entry system (such as a desktop computer, handheld device or personal computer tablet) in the physician's office to electronically submit a prescription to the patient's pharmacy of choice. e-Prescribing gives physicians real-time access to important safety and prescription coverage information, so they can make more informed prescribing decisions. e-Prescribing has been widely recognized for its ability to improve patient safety, increase practice efficiency for physicians and pharmacies, and reduce health care costs.

The physician groups volunteering for this pilot include: Hill Physicians Medical Group, John Muir Physician Network, PrimeCare Medical Network, Inc./North American Medical Management of California, San Jose Medical G
