E-Prescribing Software FAQ
Everything you need to know to choose the right software developers to build your e-prescribing software for physicians.
What is e-prescribing?
E-prescribing, or electronic prescribing, is the secure electronic creation and transmission of a prescription between an authorized prescriber and a patient's pharmacy of choice or a centralized system. This means that healthcare providers can electronically send prescriptions to pharmacies/systems, eliminating the need for paper prescriptions.
What is electronic prescribing software?
E-prescribing software is a type of software that allows healthcare providers to create and transmit electronic prescriptions. This software typically integrates with electronic health records (EHRs) and pharmacy management systems (PMSs) to streamline the prescribing process.
What are the benefits of e-prescribing?
The main benefits to e-prescribing include:
- Improved accuracy and safety: E-prescribing reduces the risk of errors, such as illegible handwriting or incorrect dosages.
- Increased efficiency: E-prescribing can help to improve workflow and reduce the time spent on prescribing medications.
- Enhanced patient convenience: Patients can receive their medications more quickly and easily with e-prescribing.
- Reduced costs: E-prescribing can help to reduce healthcare costs by eliminating the need for paper prescriptions and postage.
How does e-prescribing work?
Here is a general overview of how e-prescribing works:
- The healthcare provider enters the patient's information and the prescription details into the e-prescribing software.
- The e-prescribing software checks the prescription for accuracy and potential conflicts with other medications the patient is taking.
- The healthcare provider electronically transmits the prescription to the patient's pharmacy of choice or a central database.
- The pharmacy receives the electronic prescription and reviews it for accuracy.
- The pharmacy fills the prescription and dispenses it to the patient.

Yes, we can build custom e-prescribing software that meets your specific needs. Our team of experienced digital product developers and product owners has a proven track record of success in developing secure and compliant digital health solutions.
What is considered the best electronic prescribing solution?
There are multiple ready-made solutions available on the market, with most of them working in the SaaS model. However, they offer very limited personalization options, therefore a custom solution might be worth consideration when looking for the best e-prescribing software.
The definition of the best e-prescribing software for your organization will depend on your specific needs and requirements. Our team can assess your needs and recommend the best solution for you.
Can e-prescribing software be standalone?
