Data shows e-prescribing is on the rise [VIDEO]


If your practice still hasn't adopted an electronic health records system, you're missing out on many helpful features that other providers are already using to their advantage.

For instance, new data from the Office of the National Coordinator shows that 70 percent of U.S. health care providers are now electronically prescribing medications through their EHR systems. EHRIntelligence reported on the study, which found a 10-fold increase in the number of providers using the e-prescribing feature of their EHRs since 2008.

What's more, the data also shows that 96 percent of community pharmacies accept e-prescriptions, which is a major increase from 76 percent in 2008.
