E-Prescribing Waiver Renewal

Nancy Leveille and Lisa Volk in Clinical & Quality

NYSHFA is in conversations again this year to renew or permanently update the E-prescribing legislation. The Governor’s office understands our issue and that the current waiver expires on October 31, 2019. Our two main requests to correct this mandate is to:

  1. Allow the Nurse to be the “Agent” of the physician for enacting non controlled substance prescriptions as we have been allowed to do for years in SNF; and
  2. To provide funding to the SNF for E-Prescribing technology.

We will keep you posted on the outcome by next week.
