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

ipating physicians. In the 2003 Medicare Modernization Act, Part D sponsors were required to accept ePrescribing, and initial national standards were created for Medicare. Physicians, however, were not required to use the technology. As a result, fewer than one in 10 physicians have chosen to use electronic prescribing. NEPSI concurs with the PCMA that the only realistic way to rapidly accelerate adoption of ePrescribing is to require that physicians who treat Medicare patients use the technology.

According to the Institute of Medicine, preventable medication errors are responsible for more than 1.5 million injuries and 7,000 deaths each year. Caring for the injured accounts for billions in extra costs. A new study by the Department of Health and Human Services estimates that if just 18% of doctors in Medicare adopt e-prescribing, the government will save $4 billion and nearly three million adverse drug events can be prevented over five years.
