E-prescribing: Help and Needs

Nancy Leveille and Rick Patterson in Clinical & Quality

NYSHFA has been working on solutions for members who have no E-Prescribing process in place and also to solve outstanding issues that those who have a product and are still experiencing on call and off hour issues.

  1. We need your HELP to answer a quick survey monkey so we can collect information on where all our members are with this process. It will only take you a couple minutes to answer. It is brief but will enable us to use data to talk with the DOH and the State Education Department staff about our current needs. So please take a few minutes now to complete the survey.

  2. For those of you who NEED a standalone product, we have a free webinar (same webinar repeated twice) on Dr. First’s E-Prescribing product that can assist you with establishing E-Prescribing in your facility. Dr. First has been approved through the Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement’s certification processes to provide a full E-Prescribing package for SNF. They also have partnered with some of the EMR vendors to provide the required controlled substance BNE certificate. To register for one of those free webinars click here for either the September 10th or September 18th date.

Thank you for your time. We are continuing to advocate for your needs and help you be fully prepared for the March 2016 deadline, as there will be no extension.
