Rockville, MD (PRWEB) October 16, 2012
DrFirst, the nation’s leading e-prescribing and health IT solutions platform provider, announced today that it has formed an agreement with the Oregon Medical Association (OMA) to provide special e-prescribing benefits to help Oregon doctors meet federal Meaningful Use (MU) objectives with DrFirst’s RcopiaMU℠.
With the recent announcement of the new Meaningful Use Stage 2 requirements, and the changes to Stage 1 requirements, the Oregon Medical Association recognizes the urgency in supporting Oregon physicians in meeting Meaningful Use criteria.
“OMA is pleased to offer this new e-prescribing benefit to members," said Joanne K. Bryson, CAE, Executive Vice President and CEO of the Oregon Medical Association. "We encourage medical practices to consider DrFirst's e-prescribing solutions to help them improve patient care and efficiencies and meet Meaningful Use requirements."
Practices can have RcopiaMU up and running within days, and the product includes DrFirst’s AttestEasy, a service that helps physicians navigate the attestation process. In addition to providing physicians with a tool to meet Meaningful Use, RcopiaMU includes detailed medication history, insurance eligibility and drug benefit information, full e-prescribing with safety notifications for drug-drug, drug-allergy, age and dosage alerts.
