E-Prescribing Tools Touted

MANAGED CARE May 2008. ©MediMedia USA

Adverse drug events and low adherence to medication regimens are two concerns addressed by the newest electronic prescribing tools that will be implemented by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for Medicare Part D recipients.

A third tool relates to formulary and benefit transactions. Back in January 2006, CMS approved standards to help facilitate e-prescribing. Under the Medicare Modernization Act, CMS was charged with testing additional tools and standards.

The final e-prescribing rule was published in the Federal Register on April 2.
