White Papers

White Paper Management

A survey of elderly patients living in the Pittsburgh, PA area found overwhelming support – more than 80 percent – for electronic prescriptions, with 85 percent of patients saying they preferred having their prescriptions electronically transmitted to the pharmacy, rather than having a doctor write a paper prescription.

The findings of this survey, which were published by the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA), are notable because they point out just how accepted e-prescribing has become, and how patients have grown accustomed to the convenience of having their medications waiting for them when they arrive at the pharmacy.
