Generic prescribing is recognised as a sign of good practice in terms of consistency and safety, as well as generallybeing more cost effective. It also allows any suitable generic (or equivalent branded product) to be dispensed,reduces the number of items to be stocked in the pharmacy and can potentially reduce delays in supplyingmedicines to the patient.

Why have they used "being" and not "is" in "being more cost effective...?"
How do we know when to replace "is" with "being"?

Both "is" and "being" are part of the same verb to be and therefore mean very much the same thing, particularly in the example sentence.
