|PEER Portal for Reporting E-Rx Experiences||| Print ||
The Alliance for Patient Medication Safety (APMS), a federally listed patient safety organization, has launched a Web portal to allow pharmacists to document their experiences with electronic prescriptions. The purpose is to improve the e-prescribing process.
“E-prescribing is on the rise, as more providers are tapping into this technology to improve the safety, quality, and efficiency of the prescribing process to take advantage of government incentives,” says Tara Modisett, executive director of APMS. “We are committed to using the reported data to identify and quantify the recurring issues so that we can advocate measures to improve the safety and quality of e-prescribing.”
The Pharmacy and Provider e-Prescribing Experience Reporting (PEER) Portal uses a Web-based questionnaire to collect the data. APMS and state pharmacy associations have teamed up to encourage pharmacists to use the portal.
APMS was established by the National Alliance of State Pharmacy Associations. For more information, go to www.medicationsafety.org.
