E-scripts have been used as part of computerized provider order entry implementation for several years now, particularly with the passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, Meaningful Use, the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act, the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act, and other laws and regulations.
