In the interest of improving the care of our patients, we encourage discharging practitioners to electronically transmit all prescriptions to retail pharmacies at discharge, with the exception of some controlled substances for which a paper prescription is still required. Electronic prescriptions at discharge offer many benefits to patients. They reach the pharmacy immediately, so the prescription can be ready for pick up when the patient arrives, and eliminate the risk of losing a prescription.
In order to support this practice, the Epic default will soon route discharge medications electronically to the patient’s preferred pharmacy, eliminating the need for you to manage paper prescriptions, except for controlled substances.
