eRx Basics

  • Electronic prescriptions are also known as e-prescriptions, eRx, and e-scripts.
  • Electronic prescriptions are transmitted through an EHR or other service, taking the place of paper and faxed prescriptions.
  • In DrChrono EHR, eRx is automatically compared with the patient's medication list/chart to detect any drug-drug or drug-allergy interactions that may prove dangerous or fatal to the patient.
