re: E-Prescribing Growth To Pop As Penalties Approach
Thanks for your comment. There seems to be some discrepancies between SureScripts data and this BlackBook Report, and you're not the first to bring this to my attention.
The report is available for purchase. For reference, the statistics in question were pulled from this paragraph contained in the report:
"Connectivity: While almost all chain pharmacies (97 percent) are connected to the e-Prescribing system, the vast majority (73 percent) of independent pharmacies are not yet connected. Although most payers or PBMs (representing about 200 million lives) are connected, the patient, formulary, eligibility, or medication history information may not be current. Many small or rural providers and pharmacies face additional issues, such as a lack of broadband connectivity and access to information technology professionals to support them."
