NYC e-Rx Legislation Deferred

For those of you practicing in the state of New York, you may be relieved to know that legislation has recently been passed to defer for another year (until March 27, 2016) a mandate that all prescriptions issued in the state be transmitted electronically.  drchrono currently supports the ability for Eligible Professionals (EP’s) to submit electronic prescriptions for non controlled substances and EP’s will continue to have the ability to print the correctly formatted eRX form for the state of New York via drchrono for Controlled Substance Schedules.  Additionally, drchrono is working towards the ability to support electronic prescriptions for controlled substances in 2015.
