Study Finds Doctors' Use of E-Prescribing Systems Linked to Formulary Data Can Boost Drug Cost Savings
Date:12/9/2008

s -- as doctors e-prescribe more frequently, the amount saved could increase dramatically."

Study author Joel Weissman, Ph.D., of Massachusetts General Hospital, said that the findings revealed that many doctors "want to do the right thing. If they are provided information on choices of effective medicines at the point of service, they are more likely to prescribe the one that will help their patients deal with the high cost of drugs."

AHRQ's health information technology (health IT) initiative is part of the Nation's strategy to use health IT to work in health care. This strategy includes programs across the Department of Health and Human Services such as the Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act of 2008, which, beginning in January 2009, provides up to a 2 percent payment incentive for clinicians enrolled in Medicare to use electronic prescriptions. Since 2004, AHRQ has invested more than $260 million in contracts and grants to more than 150 communities, hospitals, providers, and health care systems in 48 States to develop knowledge about and encourage adoption of health IT practices that improve quality.
