Description

Payors and providers will be affected by the proposed new standards that will be the foundation for electronic prescribing starting in January 2006.

The proposed Federal rules are the first set of what will be uniform standards for an electronic prescription drug program under the Medicare Modernization Act.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) proposes to make the compliance date for the foundation standards January 1, 2006, so that they will be ready for immediate use when the Medicare drug benefit begins.

“The Proposed Medicare E-Prescribing Rules: Briefing for Stakeholders,” is a new executive-level tele-briefing which was held on Thursday, May 5, 2005. This CD Rom comes with conference materials.

Working on input for the proposed standards, the National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics (NCVHS) developed recommendations for uniform standards for e-prescribing to promote patient safety and quality health care by taking testimony from 65 witnesses and other industry experts.

The proposed e-prescribing regulations could be adopted as final standards. That's why this tele-briefing has been organized for all those who have a stake in these developments: prescribers and dispensers, payors, hospitals, physician organizations, prescription drug plan sponsors, Medicare Advantage organizations, pharmacies, PBMs, pharmaceutical companies and other organizations.

The goal of “The Proposed Medicare E-Prescribing Rules: Briefing for Stakeholders,” is to help all affected organizations become familiar with and get ready to meet the requirements of the new e-prescribing standards.
