Study Shows Positive Gains, Perceptions of E-Prescribing

Study results showed prescribers and healthcare workers recognized the benefits and generally expressed positive attitudes after successfully adopting e-prescribing, according to research published in BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making.

Researchers formed eight focus groups at three primary-care sites. Each site was in a different stage of e-prescribing implementation: pre-implementation, transition and post-implementation. Questionnaires were distributed to physicians and staff about their perceptions of e-prescribing implementation.

Results showed the surveyed healthcare workers recognized the immediate benefits of e-prescribing, including improved availability of clinical information, prescribing efficiencies, improved care coordination and improved documentation. Overall, respondents demonstrated positive attitudes, and no one wished to return to paper-based prescribing.
