Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances (EPCS) is quickly becoming mandated throughout the United States. With the technological hurdles and additional costs associated with adding an e-prescribe system, these changes can seem intimidating to many hospices.
However, e-prescribe comes with several benefits including:
- Saving clinicians time and saving the hospice money
- Eliminating the manual burden on nurses
- Streamline admissions processes
- Making prescribing anytime from a mobile device a reality
- Giving clinicians medication information (included insurance) at the bedside
- And much more.
