Definition Edit

A qualified electronic prescribing system

must have several technological capabilities, including the ability to perform the following: generate a complete medication list; generate and transmit prescriptions electronically, and conduct alerts; provide information on formulary or tiered formulary medications, patient eligibility, and authorization requirements; and provide information on lower-cost, therapeutically appropriate alternatives (if any). Additionally, a qualified electronic prescribing system must be consistent with CMS’s Part D electronic prescribing standards.[1]
