1.6    Subd. 2. Requirements for electronic prescribing. (a) Effective January 1, 2011,
1.7all providers, group purchasers, prescribers, and dispensers must establish, maintain,
1.8and use an electronic prescription drug program. This program must comply with the
1.9applicable standards in this section for transmitting, directly or through an intermediary,
1.10prescriptions and prescription-related information using electronic media.
1.11    (b) If transactions described in this section are conducted, they must be done
1.12electronically using the standards described in this section. Nothing in this section
1.13requires providers, group purchasers, prescribers, or dispensers to electronically conduct
1.14transactions that are expressly prohibited by other sections or federal law.
1.15    (c) Providers, group purchasers, prescribers, and dispensers must use either HL7
1.16messages or the NCPDP SCRIPT Standard to transmit prescriptions or prescription-related
1.17information internally when the sender and the recipient are part of the same legal entity. If
1.18an entity sends prescriptions outside the entity, it must use the NCPDP SCRIPT Standard
1.19or other applicable standards required by this section. Any pharmacy within an entity
1.20must be able to receive electronic prescription transmittals from outside the entity using
1.21the adopted NCPDP SCRIPT Standard. This exemption does not supersede any Health
1.22Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requirement that may require the
1.23use of a HIPAA transaction standard within an organization.
1.24(d) Notwithstanding paragraph (a), effective January 1, 2016, providers and
