Electronic Prescription Writing

By Rick Redalen, M.D.

Remember how great we have always heard electronic prescription writing was going to be? Our prescription would always be there waiting for us at the pharmacy by the time we got there.

How about the times when the prescription is not at the pharmacy when you arrive. The pharmacy says to the patient we have a call your doctor’s office. A day or two later the pharmacy informs you your doctor has not called back. And so it goes.

You then take it upon yourself to call your physician’s office also. You are reassured that your prescription will be called in immediately. Does this refrain sound familiar? I suspect the pharmacy can reach your physician’s office about as easily as you can. It just can’t seem to be done.     More
