Two toolsets, one for physicians in small practices and one for independent pharmacies, for supporting e-prescribing implementation are now available from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). The toolsets are designed to offer a step-by-step guide for preparing for and launching an e-prescribing system. They include advice on topics ranging from planning the implementation process, launching the system, troubleshooting common problems, and navigating into more advanced practice and pharmacy services. Find both toolsets and supporting tools at the AHRQ Implementation Toolsets for E-Prescribing webpage.
