e-Prescribing is the secure, electronic creation and transmission of a prescription between an authorized prescriber and a patient’s pharmacy of choice using an electronic medical record (EMR) or a standalone application, and pharmacy management software. By eliminating paper and hand written prescriptions, e-prescribing can improve patient safety, convenience and the overall quality of care.
To improve medication management, Infoway is working with the provinces and territories to develop a multi-jurisdiction e-prescribing (eRx) service, PrescribeITTM, that will facilitate better, safer and more appropriate prescription drug use by Canadians.
