Seattle, WA (PRWEB) June 23, 2010
Design Clinicals’ premier medication reconciliation product, MedsTracker, is now certified to connect to Surescripts®, the Nation’s E-Prescription Network for Prescription Routing. Prescription Routing services allow legible new prescriptions to be sent directly to the computer at the pharmacy of the patient’s choice. Pharmacies can also use this connectivity to send requests directly to the practice computer. Prescribers can then review and respond to pending requests with a few keystrokes. E-prescribing capability further enhances MedsTracker’s ability to help hospitals reduce costs, enhance patient safety and improve clinician efficiency throughout the medication reconciliation process.
Establishing a connection to the Surescripts network for e-prescribing results in the delivery of “clean” prescriptions with several key benefits:
- Reduced chance of medication errors
- Physician access to patient prescription benefit coverage, which means fewer rejected claims and less rework at the pharmacy
- Improved formulary compliance
- More efficient generic/therapeutic interchange
- Reduced paperwork and rekeying of information, which allows clinicians to spend more time with patients.
“We are pleased for MedsTracker to be part of the Surescripts network for Prescription Routing services,” said designer and founder CEO Dewey Howell, M.D., PhD, of Design Clinicals. “We wanted the best partner for e-prescribing capability for our product, and found it with the features and benefits of the Surescripts network.”
Surescripts operates the nation’s largest e-prescription network and supports a rapidly expanding ecosystem of health care organizations nationwide. Surescripts was founded on the principles of neutrality, transparency, interoperability, efficiency, collaboration and quality. Surescripts connects prescribers in all 50 states through their choice of e-prescribing software to the nation’s leading payers, chain pharmacies and independent pharmacies. Available during emergencies or routine care, the Nation’s E-Prescription Network gives health care providers secure, low-cost, electronic access to prescription and health information that can save their patients’ lives, improve efficiency and reduce the cost of health care for all.
