  • Advantages of E-Prescribing of Drugs
    Electronic prescribing of drugs have developed to be well supportive to the currently highly complex health care system in the North America since its introduction by the Medicare Modernization Act of 2003, which have led 91% adoption of usage of this program even though the MMA did not give guidelines on how to implement or use this system, and has come to solve problems such as prescription and safety errors through the use of advanced software that discover the dosage accuracy and drug to drug interactions, as it has been well explained in the following benefits of e-prescribing.
    To start with, there is a raise in the safety of patients when the e-prescription is upheld, an issue that have proved to be dominant in the past, which can be proved by considering that there have been more than 2 million adverse drug events in North America and this requires an allocation of $4 million, which can be instead avoided by moving away from issues like misinterpretation of the written prescription, double therapy, incorrect or unavailable dosages, or skipping of vital information, whose identification can lead to a bottleneck in the system because time has to be spent while communication takes place between the providers and the pharmacy, and this system provides a software that prompts the provider to confirm the dosage, confirm allergies that may exist, and to check the reactions and relations between the drugs and themselves.
    There is also a cost benefit, seeing that a trial that was used to evaluate the effects a support software at the point of care found that financial benefits are among the benefits with an average of less than $4.12 per patient, which is far much relatively less than what was being incurred by those who went for the option of handwritten prescription and this came about through alerts that discouraged providers from extremely expensive medication, informed providers off less expensive therapies and recommended enhancement of the current therapies before allowing a transmission to happen.
    The last advantage of the e-prescription is that there is fast and easy access to prescription information, with the electronic storage being very useful, like it was used in a 2005 hurricane, where the patients’ medical information were easily accessed and extracted through the use of Sure Script, a network used to e-prescribe across the US, and is also important in instances where there is a drug recall in which case, due to the effective management of information, it is easy to trace the patients who had received the drugs and using their contact information, it is easy to call them back to bring those drugs.
