    CURES = Controlled substance Utilization Review and Evaluation System. (Technically, then, the acronym should be C-SURES.)

    I, for one, have given up and given in totally to the electronic refills and my life got much easier. I keep patients who see me regularly with ongoing PRN refills. Patients that have a history of poor compliance, I give them enough refills electronically to get them to the next visit. Instead of fighting the pharmacy requests, I use them to help me keep up with refills and by in large it works well. My staff rarely get calls from the pharmacies and I discard faxes from pharmacies that use electronic scripts.
