AHRQ Toolkit Released

June 13, 2012

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) has released a Toolkit with 13 steps to aid physician practices and independent pharmacies in their e-prescribing implementation.

See the Toolkit.

The steps include all aspects of setting up an e-prescribing system, from determining who should be on the implementation team all the way through printing out documents to provide patients during a visit when they have been given an e-prescription.

One tool of particular interest is the E-prescribing Vendor Assessment Tool, an Excel spreadsheet that provides key questions and a scoring system for potential e-prescribing vendors.
