What is E-Prescribing?

Electronic prescribing (e-prescribing) is the secure electronic creation and transmission of a prescription between an authorized prescriber and a patient’s pharmacy of choice, using clinical Point of Service (POS) solutions, in a manner which integrates clinical workflow and software. (Canadian Medical Association & Canadian Pharmacists Association, 2012)

E-Prescribing replaces:

  • Hand written prescriptions
  • Printed/faxed prescriptions
