In 2018, the California Legislature passed a law (AB 2789) that created a state-level mandate that all prescriptions must be transmitted electronically by January 1, 2022. The law applies to all physicians and almost all prescriptions, with very few exceptions. The California Medical Association (CMA) has compiled a frequently asked questions document (members-only) to help physicians understand their requirements under the new law.

CMA is also hosting a webinar on Thursday, June 17, 2021, so physicians and their staff can learn more about the electronic prescribing mandate, and how to make sure your practice is ready to go for next year. The webinar—Preparing for California's Electronic Prescribing Mandate—is free for members and their staff, and $99 for all others.

If you are unable to attend the live webinar, it will be available for on-demand viewing at cmadocs.org/webinars a few days after the live event.
