Integration provides doctors with ability to securely send prescriptions to any pharmacy while complying with all state laws

February 9, 2015

Rockville, MD and Orem, UT— February 9, 2015 — Curve Dental, the leading developer of cloud-based dental software, has selected DrFirst, the leading provider of e-medication management technology, to provide integrated electronic prescribing capabilities for both legend drugs and controlled substances to Curve Dental customers.

“Our integration with DrFirst provides our customers with the ability to print or send any prescription in accordance with every state’s individual requirements,” said Ian Zipursky, president and COO of Curve Dental, Inc. “With a number of important prescription deadlines looming this year it was important for Curve Dental to choose a partner that has demonstrated an ability to stay on top of state legislation as well as provide a sleek, well-designed user interface that matches our own sense of style. With a few clicks of the mouse, our customers will be able to send prescriptions to any pharmacy in a secure and compliant manner. A Curve Dental mandate is to increase efficiency in the dental practice and this partnership works toward that end goal.”

By integrating DrFirst’s eRx and EPCS technologies, available to Curve Dental customers at an additional fee, Curve Dental is supporting dental professionals who recognize that prescription drug abuse is an epidemic. For New York customers, the integration will help them comply with New York’s Internet System for Tracking Over-Prescribing Law (I-STOP), which requires providers to electronically prescribe all legend drugs and controlled substances beginning on March 27, 2015.

E-medication management is important for dentists, who frequently prescribe pain medications,” said G. Cameron Deemer, president of DrFirst. “Combining Curve Dental’s cloud-based EMR with our e-medication management platform supports New York dentists in complying with the state’s e-prescribing mandate, and enables Curve Dental to support providers in other states with the inherent patient safety benefits and workflow efficiency of e-prescribing.”
