Abstract

Lack of computer expertise, cost, and safety and HIPAA concerns as well as resistance from the office staff have contributed to only about 15% of all physicians sending prescriptions electronically. Adoption of electronic prescribing in the office is easy and relatively inexpensive with the right software and hardware for your unique situation. This general guidance can ease concerns about implementing this new technology in the office.
