House Clears Way for Electronic Prescriptions of Powerful Drugs

Advocates of House Bill 4013 say that allowing doctors to prescribe Schedule II drugs electronically will make life easier for practitioners and pharmacists while cutting down on prescription forgeries. House Bill 4013 was brought to the Legislature by the Oregon Pharmacy Coalition and brings Oregon in line with federal law, which already encourages electronic prescriptions as a money-saver and a security move.”It’s good for patient safety and for patient convenience,” said Niki Terzieff, a lobbyist for the pharmacists. Schedule II drugs include codeine, morphine, benzodiazepines and addictive stimulants.
