Oklahoma state senator proposes electronic prescriptions

Electronic prescriptions

Sen. Gary Stanislawski, R-Tulsa, has authored Senate Bill 1179, which would allow doctors who prescribe a medication to send it electronically to a pharmacy.

Medical officials wouldn't be required to use the new electronic system, however it could cut down on forgery or theft of prescription note pads, said Darrell Weaver, director of the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs Control. has disabled the comments for this article.
