McLean, Virginia (PRWEB) March 28, 2013
ZH Healthcare recently announced a new service for their e-Prescription module for the community version of OpenEMR. The e-Prescription, or frequently referred to as eRx, module includes drug-drug and drug-allergy interactions and the ability to both print and transmit prescriptions electronically. Electronic prescription facilitates faster delivery of medicines, refills and removes errors thus making it extremely reliable and safe.
The ZH OpenEMR e-Prescription enables a medical practice to maintain better efficiency and patient satisfaction. The simplified workflow saves time and money, allows for integrated patient medication management, and increases patient safety by reducing errors and alerting the provider to potentially dangerous drug interactions. ZH OpenEMR e-Prescription meets the original OpenEMR Meaningful Use certification criteria for "additional required software.”
Patients also benefit from the use of an integrated eRx and will appreciate the time savings from electronic transmission of the script reducing the need for phone calls and prescription drop-off.
Shameem C. Hameed, Chairman of ZH Healthcare, states, “ZH Healthcare contributed significantly to the development of the NewCrop eRx feature in OpenEMR. We began to bundle e-Prescribing subscriptions into our hosted ZH OpenEMR packages in 2012. Since then, providers and practices have benefited from the integrated use of eRx information in the ZH OpenEMR solution.” Hameed further explaines, “There was a large population who use the community version OpenEMR that needed this subscription service too. To respond to this need we now offer ZH Healthcare eRx Subscription and eRx Implementation Services.”
The new ZH Healthcare e-Rx offering is a low cost monthly subscription. It is complemented with a Setup and Training service for a one-time fee that includes installation, configuration, testing and training of staff to use and administer the ZH Healthcare eRX module.
