Reference Document for Medicare E-Prescribing Incentive


The Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act of 2008 (MIPPA) authorized the Medicare E-prescribing Incentive Program beginning in 2009 to promote adoption and use of e-prescribing systems.

Now that we’ve rung in the New Year, we have received a number of calls asking where physicians can get information regarding the Medicare e-prescribing initiative.

If you’re an eligible provider and are interested in earning incentives from Medicare for using e-prescribing technology, take the time to read this guide that has been published by CMS (the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services).

This .pdf file explains the e-prescribing incentive and provides other resources for comprehensive guidance.

Harmony Healthcare IT encourages the adoption of e-prescribing so that your physican office can

  • improve patient safety and quality of care
  • be more efficient
  • save time

We welcome the opportunity to share our electronic prescribing solution with you.  It is affordable, easy-to-install, and interfaces directly to The Medical Manager software.  It allows you to transmit both new prescriptions and renewal requests directly to the pharmacy without hand-writing or faxing.

Ask us to show you a demonstration so that you can start earning incentives from Medicare for prescribing electronically in 2009.
