Diamondback Drugs, LLC, a national leader in veterinary pharmaceutical compounding announces the full market release of VetPrescriber, a proprietary electronic prescription ordering platform developed for veterinary practices, eliminating the need for handwritten, faxed, or called-in prescriptions from the veterinarian or other qualified clinical staff members to the pharmacy.
VetPrescriber has been shown to save practices time and money by reducing prescription ordering time, thus freeing up clinical staff to attend to revenue-generating activities. A recent independent study conducted by the VetVine® Specialty Consulting Service, a network of board certified veterinary specialists and industry experts, found a 50% reduction in prescription ordering time and a clinic savings of nearly $4,000 per year by using VetPrescriber.1
Additionally, VetPrescriber provides many of the same benefits to the veterinary world that has been demonstrated by human e-prescribing. These include better medication safety, improved management of medication costs, enhanced prescribing speed and accuracy, convenient access to patient records, and improved patient compliance and convenience. 2 VetPrescriber integrates with most veterinary electronic health record (EHR) systems, and affords 24/7 access to patient records and prescribing.
“It’s remarkable how dramatically VetPrescriber can improve clinic efficiencies, saving time and money” said CEO Michael Blaire. “This platform further allows us to partner with our clinics helping them streamline the arduous process of ordering prescriptions into a fast and enjoyable experience.”
Due to the automated email communications generated by VetPrescriber between clinics, clients, and the pharmacy, less time was spent on the phone regarding prescription status, shipping and delivery information. The study also found a significant reduction of clinic staff time spent on phone calls and faxes to and from the pharmacy to clarify orders, discuss errors, and renew or authorize prescriptions.
"Not only is money saved, but the time reclaimed by using e-prescribing can be redirected toward focused patient care or to other activities such as record review to ensure that fees are captured for services provided—all of which are revenue-generating activities for the practice," stated VetVine® CEO and Chief Visionary Officer Sheri Berger, DVM, DACVO.
VetPrescriber provides the veterinary practitioner the opportunity to realize real-world benefits through time and cost savings and improved efficiency, and for the veterinary patient by maximizing provided healthcare.
