In an iHealthBeat Special Report by Rachel Dornhelm, experts discussed how federal incentive programs for electronic prescribing and the meaningful use of electronic health records are spurring more physicians to use e-prescribing tools.
Experts say the next step involves encouraging doctors to use all of the functions of e-prescribing systems.
The Special Report includes comments from:
- Kate Berry, CEO of the National eHealth Collaborative;
- Tony Schueth, CEO of Point of Care Partners, a health IT consulting firm;
- David Yakimischak, general manager for e-prescribing at e-prescribing network Surescripts; and
- Jimmy Yuen, owner and pharmacist at Advance Medical Pharmacy in Walnut Creek, Calif. (Dornhelm, iHealthBeat, 7/11).
