White paper offers guidelines for electronic prescriptions
The ADA Council on Dental Practice has approved the ADA Standards Committee on Dental Informatics’ White Paper No. 1070 for Implementation of the Electronic Prescription Standard for Dentistry that presents and establishes guidelines for standard electronic prescriptions.
The paper recommends that dental practices follow the National Council for Prescription Drug Programs Script Standard, which was created to facilitate the transfer of prescription data between pharmacies, prescribers, intermediaries and payers.
