E-Prescribing: Letter to the Health Commissioner

Esq Stephen Hanse and Nancy Leveille in Legislative, Clinical & Quality

NYSHFA has partnered with the Medical Society on NYS (MSSNY) and the other state and regional associations to request relief from the March 27, 2015 deadline for the E-Prescribing implementation date. The specific Long Term Care issues have been highlighted in the attached letter along with a request to provide a waiver for at least a year.  NYSHFA also continues to dialog with the Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement, the DOH, many of the vendors of E-prescribing, along with our pharmacy consultants. We will keep members updated as more information unfolds.
