The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) has released two toolsets, one for small physician practices and one for independent pharmacies, meant to help support e-prescribing implementation.
Officials say the toolsets are designed to offer a step-by-step guide for preparing and launching an e-prescribing system. Each set includes tailored advice on topics ranging from planning the implementation process, launching the system, troubleshooting common problems and navigating into more advanced practice and pharmacy services.
AHRQ’s “A Toolset for E-Prescribing Implementation in Physician Offices” seeks to offer practices the knowledge and resources to implement e-prescribing successfully. The toolset consists of 11 chapters that provide guidance on various topics – from building an implementation team to assessing vendors to planning for EHR transition – that can facilitate the process.HEALTH IT, News
