Congratulations to Delaware for earning the #1 ranking for 2013. Delaware has ranked in the top 5 since the Safe-Rx rankings began in 2007.

Rankings are calculated to reflect all three critical steps in the e-prescribing process:  Total number of responses to requests for patient eligibility information as a percentage of total patient visits.  Total number of responses to requests for patient medication history as a percentage of total patient visits.  Total number of prescriptions routed electronically to both retail and mail order pharmacies (new prescriptions plus responses to prescription renewal requests) as a percentage of all prescriptions within a state that are able to be submitted electronically. 9th Annual Safe-Rx calculations: Eligible prescriptions do not include preauthorized refills on existing prescriptions, because they do not require communication between a physician and a pharmacist.
