eScription help


Best answers
Can anyone shed light on the 1% penalty for not using eScription? My Urologist is getting this penalty for all 2012 claims. I understand it is because she didn't use electronic devices for perscriptions but I'm unclear how we code to show we will now be using eScription. G8553? When it's applied ???

Also, does anyone have any good suggestions for handheld eScription devices. We are new to this technology and want something user friendly inexpensive. We don't have EHR/EMR at all.

Thanks in advance
