Pharmacy and Provider ePrescribing Experience Reporting Portal
This portal collects your experiences with e-prescribing technologies in a confidential matter. All comments - whether suggestions for improvement or complaints about the process - are welcome. The purpose is to allow the Alliance for Patient Medication Safety (APMS), a patient safety organization, to gather detailed information that may be used to improve the quality and effectiveness of electronic prescribing technologies. There are 12 questions that can be completed in less than 3 minutes.
Please read the following disclaimer then
click on the "Continue" button to accept its terms and access the reporting form.
- No personally identifiable patient information, otherwise known as protected health information (PHI), should ever be entered or provided in response to the questionnaire. Any questionnaire or response received that appears to contain PHI will be deleted and destroyed immediately in its entirety and will not be used in any manner.
- APMS will only disclose the information in de-identified statistical or aggregate form or in the form of best practices or reports using aggregate data.
- This portal is not a technical support site. Support issues, such as electronic prescriptions or refill requests not being received by the pharmacy or prescriber to which they were sent, should be reported to the appropriate prescriber or pharmacy technology vendors. However, if the support issue can affect the quality or safety of patient care, the user is encouraged to report the issue. For example, if the system makes it difficult to distinguish between numbers and letters (e.g., l and 1), which could or did result in a medication error, that information should be reported to improve the quality of care.
- Reporters should not expect a personalized communication from APMS in response to the information they provide. Reports will be used to identify trends and systems improvements to improve the overall quality and operation of the e-prescribing. Feedback to reporters may be made in the form of best practices in e-prescribing or systems improvements that could be disseminated through NASPA or posted on the APMS website, at APMS’s sole discretion.
