E-prescribing is widely used in preparation and maintenance of complete medication lists. Moreover, the technology also aids extraction of complete patient information and formulary with continuous data security checks. These services are gaining traction due to increasing application of technology in the healthcare sector and significant support from governments across the world. For instance, government initiatives include incentive programs to promote e-prescribing, such as the National Council for Prescription Drugs Program and the Clinical Health Act in North America.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2018, 7,000 to 9,000 people die due to medication errors in the U.S. every year. Furthermore, Adverse Drug Events (ADEs) account for almost 700,000 emergency visits and more than 100,000 hospitalizations. This technology is anticipated to reduce such errors by eliminating handwritten prescription. Moreover, the technology enables the prescriber follow formulary compliance by using the decision support systems, as well as improves the ability to transfer medical prescriptions.
