A Delay for E-Prescribing

On Friday, March 13, 2015, Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law legislation (S.02486, A.04274) that will delay, by one year, the deadline for all prescriptions to become electronic. Originally set to take effect on March 27, it was noted that many electronic health record systems are not certified for prescribing controlled substances. This delay will provide healthcare professionals and EMRs the opportunity to comply with the mandate.
