ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a 2011 study conducted by the Center for Studying Health System Change (HSC) in Washington D.C. among 24 physician practices in the U.S. who are using e-prescribing systems. The study's findings call for the developers of e-prescribing systems to simplify the tools for viewing and importing timely and pertinent data such as medication formularies and generic alternatives from third-party databases into patient systems.
