Rockville, MD (PRWEB) March 5, 2010 –
Wayne Singer, President and CEO of eDr.Rx, announced recently that the company’s eDr.Rx e-prescription management application will support the new Apple iPad device when it is released in late March. Prospective clients will be able to securely sign up for eDr.Rx services through the iTunes App Store. eDr.Rx currently allows access with all browser-based form factors, including PCs, Tablet PCs, smart phones and PDAs, using either Windows and Mac operating systems.
eDr.Rx is a Web-based electronic prescribing application that does not require dedicated hardware or software. Nothing beyond a high-speed Internet connection, including wireless, is required to access the application from multiple offices, home, or on-call. eDr.Rx includes work-flow support and connectivity features, drug interaction alerts and formularies from over 4,500 health plans, including Medicare Part D. The application can be used in conjunction with many practice management or EMR solutions.
“The eDr.Rx system’s primary benefits are the workflow improvements it brings to providers. They can use the application anywhere and any time they have access to the Internet. We will continue to add to the number of mobile devices the application supports,” Singer explained. “Additionally, the allergy, drug and pregnancy interaction alerts enhance care and improve patient safety. We also offer our clients access to a feature called Your RxCard, which helps ensure their patients pay the lowest price possible for their prescriptions, which can enhance compliance. And, a very important feature is that the Medicare two percent bonus incentive for electronic prescribing covers the entire cost of our application and services,” Singer added.
eDr.Rx accesses the Pharmacy Health Information Exchange™ operated by
SureScripts®, facilitating the simple and secure transmission of prescription data to connected pharmacies and management of renewal requests. eDr.Rx clients also have access to RxHub®, a health plan repository of precise, patient-specific formularies for covered patients. In addition, an all-doctor drug history is automatically checked for drug interactions and duplicative therapies.
eDr.Rx is a standalone, Web-based e-prescription application that meets all of the Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act (MIPPA) requirements. The system is compatible with many practice management and EMR systems and allows clients to qualify for the Medicare reimbursement incentives that have been established by CMS. e-Prescribing has been proven to be an effective method for enhancing practitioners’ workflow, improving patient safety and saving money for the healthcare delivery system.
