UPREHS ePrescribing

UPREHS Electronic Prescribing (ePrescribing) lets prescribers write and send your prescriptions directly to your pharmacy. ePrescribing saves money, time, and will help to keep your information safe.

You don't have to drop off and wait for your pharmacist to fill your prescription-it may be ready when you arrive. Prescribers can check which drugs your insurance covers and prescribe a drug that costs you less. Electronic prescriptions are easier for the pharmacist to read than handwritten prescriptions, so there's less chance you'll get the wrong drug or dose. Prescribers have secure access to your prescription history, so they can be alerted to potential drug interactions, allergies and other warnings.

What is ePrescribing?

ePrescribing allows your doctor or healthcare provider to send your prescription to the pharmacy electronically through a private, secure, and closed network.

How Does ePrescribing Work?

Instead of writing out your prescription on a piece of paper, your doctor or other healthcare provider enters it directly into his or her computer. Your prescription travels from your doctor or other healthcare provider’s computer to the pharmacy’s computer, accurately and error free.

Does ePrescribing Save Time?

ePrescribing reduces or eliminates phone calls and call-backs to pharmacies. It also streamlines the refill requests and authorization process. The pharmacist generates a refill request/authorization that is delivered through the network to your doctor or healthcare provider's system. The refill request is then reviewed and approved or denied and the pharmacy system is immediately updated.

How Does ePrescribing Save Money?

Your doctor or healthcare provider can check which drugs your insurance covers and prescribe a drug that costs you less.

How Does ePrescribing Reduce the Risk of Mistakes?

Warning and alert systems are provided to decrease the risk of medication errors. Hand-written prescriptions are eliminated. Electronic prescriptions are easier for the pharmacist to read, so there's less chance you'll get the wrong drug or dose. Your doctor or healthcare provider will have secure access to your prescription history, so they can be alerted to potential drug interactions, allergies and other warnings.

Will My Privacy Be at Risk with ePrescriptions?

All information pertaining to your prescriptions is protected by Federal and State Laws. The federal law is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). HIPAA requires that your personal health information be shared only for the purpose of providing you with clinical care. E-prescriptions meet this requirement.
