Tipping Point for eRx

David Snow said that Medco had achieved over 10% of Rxs being electronic a few months ago.  Now Walgreens put out a press release that in March they had 15% of all their Rxs sent in electronically.  Perhaps we are reaching the “tipping point”.

Walgreens pharmacies filled 3.1 million electronic prescriptions in March, a 211% increase over the same period a year ago. Still, that represents only about 15% of all eligible prescriptions.

Walgreens estimates it will fill more than 40 million electronic prescriptions in 2009, compared with 15 million last year.
