E-prescribing: Help and Needs

Nancy Leveille and Richard 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.

For those of you who NEED a standalone product, we have entered into a partnership with Dr. First to offer a discounted rate in licensing for MDs.

To assist you, we have a free webinar (same webinar repeated three times) 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 the free webinars, see dates and links below:

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.
