NY legislators green light delay of e-prescribing mandate


NEW YORK — State legislators have passed legislation delaying implementation of an e-prescribing mandate given a lack of readiness among both physicians and electronic health records vendors, according to published reports.

The implementation of the legislation, originally slated for March 27, has been delayed until March 2016, according to reports. The legislation still requires a signature by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The legislation, which would apply to both controlled and non-controlled substances, is designed to curb fraud and prescription errors.
