Ohio Revised Code § 5164.757 - E-prescribing Applications.

(A) As used in this section, "licensed health professional authorized to prescribe drugs" has the same meaning as in section 4729.01 of the Revised Code.

(B) The medicaid director may acquire or specify technologies to provide information regarding medicaid recipient eligibility, claims history, and drug coverage to medicaid providers through electronic health record and e-prescribing applications.

If such technologies are acquired or specified, the e-prescribing applications shall enable a medicaid provider who is a licensed health professional authorized to prescribe drugs to use an electronic system to prescribe a drug for a medicaid recipient . The purpose of the electronic system is to eliminate the need for such medicaid providers to issue prescriptions for medicaid recipients by handwriting or telephone. The technologies acquired or specified by the director also shall provide such medicaid providers with an up-to-date, clinically relevant drug information database and a system of electronically monitoring medicaid recipients' medical history, drug regimen compliance, and fraud and abuse.

Renumbered from § 5111.083 and amended by 130th General Assembly File No. 25, HB 59, §101.01, eff. 9/29/2013, and 1/1/2014.
