New York gives doctors deadline to start issuing electronic prescriptions to avoid prescription errors

Comments (0)

 

New York physicians have no choice but to do away with handwritten prescriptions because lawmakers recently issued a three-year deadline for doctors to start issuing prescriptions electronically. The legislation also imposes tougher restrictions on painkillers and other drugs on the state list of controlled substances.

Doctors would have to report filling painkiller prescriptions in an online monitoring program. Health officials will review the registry and look for problems or troubling trends in order to crack down on overprescribing and overuse.

Some doctors call regulations burdensome
Some doctors have called the new regulations burdensome, and it may be much easier to scribble a handwritten prescription on a piece of paper, but this is big step in preventing medication mistakes.

Bad handwriting is one cause of misinterpreted prescriptions that can end up harming a patient, or even causing death.

Prescription mistakes can lead to wrong medication, or wrong dose
Doctors and pharmacy staff do not always communicate perfectly and when mistakes are made people are put at huge risk after receiving the wrong medication or the wrong dose of medicine from a pharmacy. This new legislation can pave the way for other states to enact similar laws requiring doctors to issue only electronic prescriptions.

You have rights if a pharmacy made an error with your medication.
If a pharmacy made a mistake in your prescription you can take action to recover compensation for injuries you sustained. You can contact our office at 1-888-526-7616 for a free pharmacy error case review today to discuss your potential pharmacy error claim.
