Stage 1 - Objective 4: Electronic Prescribing

For Stage 1 providers in 2015, more than 40 percent of all permissible prescriptions written by the EP are transmitted electronically using CEHRT.

 

Exclusion: Any EP who-
a. Writes fewer than 100 permissible prescriptions during the EHR reporting period; or
b. Does not have a pharmacy within his or her organization and there are no pharmacies that accept electronic prescriptions within 10 miles of the EP's practice location at the start of his or her EHR reporting period.
