RESOLUTION NO: 114-3-18
TITLE: Electronic Transmission of Prescriptions
WHEREAS, the electronic transmission of prescriptions from prescribers to pharmacists is a more effective means of transmission compared to a handwritten prescription or verbal order; and
WHEREAS, there is evidence that mandating the electronic transmission of prescriptions provides multiple advantages;
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that NABP collaborate with appropriate stakeholders including, but not limited to, Drug Enforcement Administration, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, and electronic prescribing experts, to examine the feasibility of mandating that all prescriptions be transmitted electronically.
