Boulder, CO (PRWEB) March 21, 2011
MD-IT announced today its new partnership with DrFirst to provide comprehensive e-prescribing functionality to physician practices using the MD-IT Platform. The fully integrated e-prescribing solution will enable customers to improve prescribing safety and medical practice efficiency.
With the integration of DrFirst’s Rcopia e-prescribing technology, MD-IT Platform users will now be able to easily and securely submit electronic prescriptions to any retail or mail-order pharmacy while accessing comprehensive clinical information for each patient. Accessible patient information includes drug and allergy interactions, complete prescribing histories and formulary information. Doctors and their staff members can easily access this SureScripts-RxHub Certified functionality from within the MD-IT Platform and all resulting prescribing data is instantly captured within the application.
The joint e-prescribing solution will comply with the 2009 regulatory requirements issued by CMS. Additionally, customers using the solution will eliminate illegible prescriptions, issue faster prescriptions, and experience dramatic reductions in calls and faxes between the medical office and the pharmacy.
“In partnering with an established e-prescribing leader such as DrFirst, we are demonstrating our continued dedication to ensuring our customers’ needs are our top priority,” said Tom Carson, president and CEO of MD-IT. “Integrating an acclaimed e-prescription solution into the MD-IT Platform contributes to our company mission of improving medical documentation by making the process more efficient and the resulting output more valuable.”
“We are pleased to work with MD-IT to bring industry-leading electronic prescribing technology to its physician customers,” said G. Cameron Deemer, President of DrFirst. “Through this integration, MD-IT users will participate in the benefits of e-prescribing while being fully compliant with the growing body of state and federal regulations.”
