Pharmacy E-prescribing Experience Reporting

Pharmacists Are Encouraged To Share Their Experiences with
Electronic Prescribing on New NASPA/SureScripts Online CQI Portal

 The National Alliance of State Pharmacy Associations (NASPA) and SureScripts have announced a collaborative effort to gather direct input from practicing community pharmacists about the experiences that they have had with electronic prescriptions. This initiative, which compliments the patient safety focus of NASPA's ongoing Pharmacy Quality Commitment program, is designed to allow the two organizations to gather suggestions for improvement as well as detailed, actionable, non-PHI data about issues that may have been encountered with electronic prescriptions so that said issues can be traced, analyzed, and if appropriate, remediated. Depending upon the circumstances, these efforts might then lead to process improvement bulletins, new certification requirements, best practices, and if necessary, interventions with prescriber and pharmacy application vendors.  It is hoped that the widespread use of the Pharmacy E-prescribing Experience Reporting Portal (PEER Portal) will lead to continuous innovation and quality improvement within e-prescribing processes on a national basis.

 The Ohio Pharmacists Association is a member of NASPA and is supporting this PEER Portal initiative. The association's leadership encourages its community pharmacists to fill out the brief questionnaire on the PEER Portal whenever they have suggestions for improvement to, or constructive criticisms about, e-prescribing processes that they have encountered.  Additional details about this initiative are available on the portal itself, which can be viewed by going to PEER Portal . Pharmacists having questions about the PEER Portal can feel free to contact either Tara Modisett of NASPA-CQI at (804) 285-4431 / tara@naspa.us or Ajit Dhavle of SureScripts at (703) 921-2149 / ajit.dhavle@surescripts.com.
