In 2018, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law (AB2789) which requires all California healthcare practitioners to transmit prescriptions electronically effective January 1, 2022, unless specified exemptions are met.
E-prescribing is a great way to help prevent opioid abuse, increase workflow efficiency, improve patient safety, maintain regulatory compliance, and reduce drug costs. The main reason why many hospice agencies continue to transmit prescriptions via the old-fashioned way rather than e-prescribing is the cost.
Well, we may just have the perfect solution for you.
