We've now had a chance to review and comment on the Proposed Final Rule for E-Prescribing Controlled Substances. Of course my interest is to think about how quality is impacted and relates to the rule and the practice of e-prescribing controlled substances.
At a high level, there is a dimension that goes well beyond what we see the role of Surescripts to be versus the role of the DEA and law enforcement.
However, Surescripts does have a unique role and view in the network, so we think we have the ability to establish some quality goals, and to measure and monitor the attainment of those quality measures.
Please post a comment if you would like to comment on the role of Surescripts to measure quality as it relates to controlled substances. What do you think quality means as it relates to the e-prescribing of controlled substances?
