On December 11, 2008, CMS is hosting its second “special open door forum” on electronic prescribing (e-prescribing), at which CMS will provide an overview of Part D e-prescribing standards and discuss e-prescribing resources, incentives and measures. In a related development, CMS has announced the specifications for the e-prescribing measure, including the requirements for a qualified e-prescribing system, which will be used to determine whether an eligible professional is a successful e-prescriber and may qualify for a 2% incentive payment for the 2009 reporting period.
