E-prescribing and adverse drug events: an observational study of the Medicare Part D population with diabetes.
Hypoglycemia is a common and severe adverse drug event among patients with diabetes. This retrospective study of claims data found that Medicare patients with diabetes were less likely to be hospitalized or seen in the emergency department for hypoglycemia if their medications were prescribed electronically, compared to those receiving fewer or no electronic prescriptions. These findings add to the literature demonstrating the benefits of electronic prescribing.
