Providers will not be required to perform double entry of data when the new capabilities are deployed
Irvine, California (PRWEB) October 7, 2008
Alteer Corporation announced today that it has finalized an agreement with Wixom, Michigan based H2H Solutions, Inc. to provide its thousands of physician clients across the country with e-Prescribing capabilities using services provided by H2H's state-of-the-art e-Prescribing Digital Rx™ product.
After extensive review of a wide array of potential electronic prescription partners, Alteer has chosen to closely integrate H2H Digital Rx with its Alteer Office practice management and EMR system, which provides its physician clients with comprehensive practice management, electronic medical records, and integrated billing capabilities.
"Digital Rx will provide Alteer Office clients with access to cutting-edge services that include integration with SureScripts-RxHub for real-time determination of prescription drug benefits, access to formularies covering over 200,000,000 privately insured lives across the country, as well as access to patients' medication histories regardless of where their prescriptions were issued," according to Mr. Erskine. "In addition, by leveraging Digital Rx's services, Alteer's physicians will be able to send their electronically prepared prescriptions to any major retail drug chain, as well as to the ever increasing list of independent pharmacies that accept e-Prescription, with just the click of a mouse."
Alteer and H2H will closely integrate Digital Rx into the Alteer Office product to insure that data from the practice management EMR system is passed seamlessly between the two platforms.
"Providers will not be required to perform double entry of data when the new capabilities are deployed," according to Mr. Erskine. "Physicians will be able to employ Digital Rx functionality into their existing Alteer Office system with minimal disruption to their practice and will enjoy the benefits of electronic prescribing almost immediately without having to acquire new hardware or software."
H2H also offers Digital Rx in a standalone mode, which is delivered in an ASP model, requiring only Internet access and appropriate security authentication for physician use. The system provides physicians with decision support notification pertaining to any potentially negative drug-drug, drug-food, or drug-allergy warnings that could affect their patients and delivers legible electronic prescriptions to pharmacists, thereby eliminating complications that arise from illegible handwriting. All of this is designed to improve physician efficiency and patient care and safety.
