|E-prescribing Campaign Targets Consumers||| Print ||
More than 26,000 pharmacies will soon start displaying window stickers, logos, and signage promoting “E-prescriptions Filled Here.” This nationwide campaign is designed to increase the number of prescribers using electronic prescriptions. According to SureScripts only 6% of physicians actively e-prescribe.
This grassroots campaign to educate consumers on the benefits of electronic prescriptions could motivate them to ask their physicians about e-prescriptions.
One goal of this promotional effort is to encourage patients to find out if their physician is currently e-prescribing by going to www.LearnAboutEprescriptions.com. They type in their ZIP code to see which physicians are on the list. Patients will be encouraged to direct their physicians to www.GetRxConnected.com, a Web site launched by several leading physician groups to spark interest in e-prescribing.
