  • HIMSS ePA and EPCS Survey Results Posted (6/10/2011)
In Spring 2011, the HIMSS E-Prescribing Task Force sought input from physicians, clinicians, pharmacists and office staff through two surveys in an effort to understand the current state and use of information technology for Electronic Prescribing of Controlled Substances (EPCS)  and Electronic Prior Authorizations (ePAs) (covered separately). The intent of each survey was that the results would be used to identify how technology can be best used in a meaningful way for prescribers, pharmacists and the healthcare industry.
