This document recommends standards to be applied in a licensed prescriber's transition to electronic (e-prescribing) and remote prescribing. A perspective inherent in this document is that remote prescribing or telemedical e-prescribing can only be understood within the larger context of e-prescribing, a relatively new tool in the American healthcare toolkit. The purpose of this document is to inform and assist individuals and organizations in providing safe and effective e-prescribing and remote prescribing services on behalf of patients. A list of additional resources and a workflow for e-prescribing are offered as well.
