Rapid Response: Impact of Federal Incentive Programs on e-Prescribing Adoption
The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) is a cooperative agreement partner of National eHealth Collaborative (NeHC).
In the mid-2000s, only 6% of office-based providers were e-prescribing. To encourage and accelerate adoption, federal incentives such as Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act (MIPAA) and HITECH were put into place. As a result, e-prescribing by office-based physicians grew from 7% in 2008 to 54% in 2012. On Friday, August 16 from 11:30AM-12:30PM EST, panelists will discuss the growth, trends, and evolution of e-prescribing adoption. They will also examine the methodology and results of a recent e-prescribing adoption study conducted by Surescripts and the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) published in Health Affairs, the impacts of federal incentive programs on e-prescribing, and what is in store for the future. After the presentations, panelists will take questions from the audience.
