E-Prescribing Update

Nancy Leveille and Stephen B. Hanse in Clinical & Quality

NYSHFA staff have been in communication with the Governor’s office this past week related to the upcoming deadline of March 31, 2017 to implement E-prescribing. We have been notified that the Commissioner is working on an extended Waiver for Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNF), which should be distributed very soon. We anticipate this extended waiver will be effective until October 31, 2017. The goal is to provide extra time to update legislation to specifically address the needs of SNF to implement the E-Prescribing system successfully.
