Electronic prescribing is convenient and secure

Electronic prescribing (e-prescribe) is a convenient and secure healthcare practice that aligns the Military Health System (MHS) with standards of care available at civilian pharmacies. By cutting down on handwritten medication errors, reducing military pharmacy wait times and reducing beneficiary costs, e-prescribe enhances the prescription process.

Providers can start sending e-prescriptions to military pharmacies in the US, Guam and Puerto Rico immediately.

Use the DoD standard "DoD SITE NAME ePhcy" to search for military pharmacies (all military ePharmacies start with "DoD" and are published by Surescripts® electronic prescribing network)
