Today, a robust e-prescribing initiative is not only underway; it is thriving, and all of the players who once stood to gain are gaining. The employer arm of the equation includes Ford Motor Company and DaimlerChrysler Corp. in addition to GM. Along with Health Alliance Plan, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan is involved. Pharmacy benefit manager Medco Health Solutions Inc. also is involved, along with DrFirst, RxHub LLC and SureScripts. At the heart of the initiative, now known as the Southeast Michigan e-Prescribing Initiative (SEMI), is the Henry Ford Medical Group (HFMG), a medical group that has embraced information technology for years. Together, all these players are rewriting the history of medication prescriptions in Michigan.
DrFirst also provides leading edge secure text messaging platforms.
