Inpatient E-Prescribing of Discharge Medications Starts July 30

Starting July 30, inpatient providers will be able to send most discharge medication orders electronically within CS-Link in a process referred to as e-prescribing.

Rather than printing, faxing or writing out a prescription, the order will transmit electronically from CS-Link directly to the patient's preferred pharmacy. This capability has been available for some time in the outpatient setting, where it has proven to be efficient and convenient for patients and providers.

Eligible providers, including attendings and residents who have their own medical license, will be able to use the new e-prescribing functionality. Providers with their own Drug Enforcement Administration license (including residents) will also be eligible for e-prescribing of controlled substances.

Physicians who would like to e-prescribe controlled substances must opt in and sign up to obtain a security token, which can be configured on a smartphone. To opt in, please visit the project team during scheduled office hours, which are between Monday, July 18, and Thursday, July 28, from 7-9 a.m. and 4-6 p.m. in the Medical Staff Lounge.

Providers unable to attend the scheduled office hours can contact the help desk after July 18 at 310-423-6428 to initiate the request for a security token.

Contact EIS Physician Leader Shaun Miller, MD, at shaun.miller@cshs.org with any additional questions.
