Pharmacy Information

We are currently utilizing an EMR (electronic medical records) system to schedule appointments and document patient encounters. We are now taking the next step toward electronically ordering and submitting prescriptions through the computer, otherwise known as ePrescribe. Electronic prescribing or e-prescribing is the electronic transmission of prescription information from the prescriber's computer to a pharmacy computer. It replaces a paper prescription that the patient would otherwise carry or fax to the pharmacy. Congress has determined that the ability to electronically send prescriptions is an important element in improving the quality of patient care. Release of your prescription history through Rx Eligibility.

In an effort to update your medical record in our system with your preferred Pharmacy we will need to obtain this information from you. Please provide your “preferred” pharmacy as Pharmacy#1 and an alternative in Pharmcy#2. If you do not know the exact address, please list cross streets and we will try to assist you in locating the exact pharmacy. If you do not have a regular pharmacy, we can assist you by location one using a preferred zip code, such as your home or work zip code.
