They are also requesting the new capability to electronically transfer a prescription from a VA pharmacy to a different pharmacy, as well as electronically receive a transferred prescription from a different pharmacy.

To more fully explain the requested capabilities, electronic prescriptions are defined as medication orders or orders for medical related supplies that are generated via a computer and transmitted electronically.
