National ePrescribing Patient Safety Initiative Supports Medicare Proposal to Adopt Additional Standards for ePrescribing
Date:11/16/2007

CHICAGO, Nov. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Allscripts, the leading provider of clinical software, connectivity and information solutions that physicians use to improve healthcare, on behalf of the National ePrescribing Patient Safety Initiative (NEPSI(TM)), strongly supports the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) proposal for the adoption of additional standards to be used by participants in the Medicare prescription drug benefit program when they prescribe electronically. The proposed new standards would help eliminate medication errors and the inefficiencies of a process that relies on handwritten paper prescriptions.

"The new standards ensure that physicians have all the information they need to provide improved care at lower cost. NEPSI supports the proposed technical standards and urges their rapid implementation."
