We have been looking into EMR capabilities regarding the supervising physician piece. Most if not all EMR vendors can place the prescriber's name, address, license and phone number on a prescription, but most if not all cannot provide the supervising physician's information so this would have to be added by hand. If it is required, it would be a significant change to the EMR vendors, as several do not offer any formal supervising physician functionality at all. Connect Care does, but most community EMRs do not. One of the major EMR vendors does not even provide sign-out functionality and this all has to be done manually. This requirement would likely take a minimum of 6 months for the EMR vendors to implement, perhaps longer for the ones with no supervising physician capability at all currently.
