Electronic Prescription Software
Before You Choose an EMR Vendor – Consider E-prescribing!
Calling all “Ambulatory Care Providers” that have not implemented an EMR, please evaluate e-prescribing vendors that offer e-prescribing as part of their complete EMR solution.
Prescription Management Software - What's it about?
E-prescribing has been shown to reduce medication errors, improve efficiency and lower medication costs. As a result, there has been increasing interest on the part of healthcare insurers to promote the use of e-prescribing software. Healthcare plans providing subsidized e-prescribing solutions to physician offices have emerged as competitors to traditional electronic medical record (EMR) healthcare IT providers, although more practices are moving to the full EMR solution. It’s apparent that the traditional EMR vendors will ultimately have to supplant the stand-alone products as they integrate with ambulatory patient records and better meet the workflow requirements of clinicians.
Electronic Prescription Software - My adviceTo help reduce IT investment costs, clinical practices should adopt a tactical approach in which e-prescribing is the first application as part of your EMR system to be installed, with other applications added in a modular fashion over time.
Electronic Prescribing Software - Nice to have:The ideal situation and best-case scenario, is for a physician to access the patient complete record of care — which includes the patient medical history, current symptoms, diagnoses, treatment plans, test orders and results — when prescribing new medications and renewing existing ones.
