Doctors’ prescriptions go electronic

Tanya Talaga
The Toronto Star, May 13, 2009
Doctors’ hand-written, sometimes barely legible prescriptions will be
replaced by electronic versions throughout the province by 2012, the
government says.
Pilot programs have been established in the Collingwood area and Sault Ste.
Marie, but the technology will soon make its way to all doctors’ offices.
Prescriptions that are electronically generated, signed and transmitted from
doctors to pharmacists should greatly reduce errors, said Dr. Alan Hudson,
chair of the eHealth Ontario board.
About 400,000 preventable reactions to medication – and 4,000 deaths – occur
in Ontario annually.
