Date:4/2/2009

One of the Country's Largest e-Prescribing Initiatives Drives Industry-leading Prescriber Utilization

NEWARK, N.J. and WOONSOCKET, R.I., April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- If you recently went to your doctor and received a handwritten prescription, you soon may be the exception, not the rule. That's right, in New Jersey more and more physicians are choosing to put down the prescription pad in favor of e-prescribing technology that is improving the quality of health care throughout the state.

Since 2004, more than 5.5 million e-prescriptions have been written by physicians taking part in the CVS Caremark and Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey (Horizon BCBSNJ) e-Prescribing program, making it one of the largest single-payor e-prescribing initiatives in the country. In 2008, physicians taking part in the program wrote nearly 2 million prescriptions, a 20 percent increase over 2007.

"This program improves the quality of care by reducing errors and increasing patient medication compliance," said Dr. Richard Popiel, Chief Medical Officer and Vice President, Horizon BCBSNJ. "With the recent passage of federal legislation encouraging the adoption of this technology, we expect more physicians to take advantage of e-prescribing."

"We see the New Jersey provider community as an industry bellwether in using technology to improve safety and compliance for their patients. We will continue to use technology to innovate and increase our ability to share critical information with patients and their providers to encourage discussions about their health care."

There are more than 1,000 prescribers in New Jersey currently using CVS Caremark's proprietary iScribe electronic prescription system. There are another 2,5
