- Question 5 of 5: Does the submitted e-prescription contain the indicated prescription related diagnosis and is this routinely populated?
- Response: A diagnosis provides tremendous value to the pharmacist to help validate therapeutic appropriateness of the e-prescription. The industry standard for e-prescription currently provides structured data fields to accommodate diagnosis codes. Some EHR vendors have enabled this feature. If this is not routine practice in your setting, work with members of your clinical and IT staff to develop work flow or policies to adopt, or contact your EHR vendor to discuss implementation. Additional support can be found in the current NCPDP SCRIPT Implementation Recommendations.
