THE MARCH 27, 2016, E-PRESCRIBING MANDATE:  WHAT SHOULD YOU DO? 
How you can comply simply and inexpensively, with or without an EMR! 
 
 
  PowerPoint and Audio Series:
Essentials from our Member Booklet, with expert Jim McNally
 
Starting March 27, 2016, the e-prescribing of both controlled and non-controlled substances will be required in New York State.  How can you prepare for this mandate?
 
You don’t need an EMR – just Internet access.  You can choose from a range of commercial systems – prices are reasonable (around $20 to $60 per month).  Most systems work with your smartphone. 
 
If you are retired or semi-retired, and/or write very few prescriptions per month, you may want to consider applying for a one-year waiver – some physicians have received these waivers.  Most other physicians will need to sign up with one of the commercial systems.
 
Find out more!  See Jim McNally’s PowerPoint series and listen as he tells you the key points.  Click on the topic(s) you are interested in – see the list below.   The first three topics, particularly, start you out with an important orientation – then you can look at the Appendices and the FAQs.
 
When each PowerPoint appears on your screen, you can simply press F5 Or, click Slide Show at top.  Then, click From Beginning.  (Be sure that your speaker is on and you have adjusted the volume.)

Doctor on Call Cards
Doctor On Call Cards: One of the unique services offered to you as a Society member is access to the Society's parking review program. The Parking Ticket Review Panel reviews members' New York City parking tickets to recommend dismissal to the New York City Parking Violations Bureau. Last year, as a result of Society intervention, members saved over $70,000 in parking fines.

In order to take advantage of this valuable membership benefit, you must renew your “Doctor On Medical Call” card. Display the card in the windshield of your car with MD plates in order to be eligible for parking ticket dismissal. The card is renewed at a reasonable price of $25.00 for a one-year period (the new card expires in June 30, 2018). Some restrictions do apply; you will receive with your new card a sheet describing these as well as the procedures to follow to request that a parking ticket be dismissed (please read them carefully).

To order your new “Doctor on Medical Call” card, send your check for $25.00, made payable to the New York County Medical Society, and your request to Lisa Joseph, Parking Review Program, New York County Medical Society, 261 West 35 Street, Suite 504 New York, New York 10001.
