The Pros of E-Prescribing Medications
Electronic prescribing has grown to support the complex health care systems in North America since it came into existence in 2003 through the Medicare Modernization Act, which did not issue a standard of implementation and application of this method, yet 91% of the pharmacies have already implemented it to their operations and through this technological advancement, traditional problems like safety and prescription errors have been solved through the use of software that scan for the accuracy of dosages and interaction of drugs with each other, which has been well explained in the following advantages of e-prescribing.
The first benefit is that it increases the safety of the patients, which is a serious problem because there are more than 2 million adverse drug events in North America and accounts for more than $4 million in spend, but can all be prevented through avoidance of errors such as unavailable or incorrect dosage, double therapy, skipping of information, misinterpretation due to bad handwriting, whose identification without the e prescribing platform would lead to delay as communications between the provider and the pharmacy takes place but with the system, the provider is supposed to confirm the accuracy of the dosage, verify allergies, and identify interaction among drugs before transmission of the prescription.
Secondly, e-prescription saves on the cost incurred by the patients based on results obtained from to a trial that evaluated the impacts of software used during drug administration, which showed that financial benefits are experienced with the cost going to as low as $4.12 per patient, which is much less compared to the relative cost incurred by traditional drug prescription and this happens through alerts that inform providers from using extremely expensive medication, less expensive therapies and enhancement in the current therapies before allowing a prescription to happen.
Lastly, there is easier access to the prescription records with the use of e-prescription and the electronic storages of these records is very useful in instances where the safety of the patient is threatened like it happened in the 2005 Hurricane Katrina where patient sensation was avoided because the records needed were present and could be obtained, with pharmacists and providers being able to get records to the people who were evacuated by the use of Sure Script, which is one of the e-prescribing network that covers almost all the pharmacies in the US, and in other cases, drugs that are called back can be well managed whenever there is an e-prescribing capability in a pharmacy, because pharmacists can easily trace the needed drugs to particular patients and call them to bring them.
