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.
To begin, e-prescription raises the safety of the patients, which has been a big issue in the past, seeing that more than 2 million adverse drug events have been found in North America and need a spending of more than $4 million, yet this can be avoided by taking measures like double therapy, misinterpretation of the written information, skipping of vital information, incorrect or available dosage, and the identification of these problem leads to delays in the system due to the time taken to communicate between the providers and pharmacy, which is solved by the software of this system, which require the provider to confirm allergies, make sure the dosage are correct, and discover the interactions between drugs.
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.
The last advantage of the e-prescription is that there is fast and easy access to prescription information, with the electronic storage being very useful, like it was used in a 2005 hurricane, where the patients’ medical information were easily accessed and extracted through the use of Sure Script, a network used to e-prescribe across the US, and is also important in instances where there is a drug recall in which case, due to the effective management of information, it is easy to trace the patients who had received the drugs and using their contact information, it is easy to call them back to bring those drugs.
