MN HIE Member Demonstrates “Courage” to Embrace E-prescribing

February 3, 2011

Not afraid to make a bold move for better patient care – especially if it makes filling out prescriptions a lot faster – The Courage Center is the first Minnesota Health Information Exchange (MN HIE) member provider to sign up for Rcopia e-prescribing.

MN HIE is a state-wide electronic records network that houses administrative and clinical data on over 4.2 million patients. DrFirst’s e-prescribing solution was recently added to the system in 2010.

The Courage Center is the first to sign up for it, and as a result, their patients will spend less time waiting for prescriptions to get called in. Through a single link accessed at the MN HIE portal, Courage Center staff can quickly generate electronic prescriptions and also view complete patient clinical history, including:

  • Medication history
  • Eligibility information
  • Lab history
  • Immunization history and other clinical care documents

We’ll keep you posted on this partnership in the months ahead as more providers sign up. For more information about how to e-prescribe through the MN HIE, contact Andy Detweiler, DrFirst Director of Sales at (866) 263-6511 x2656 or adetweiler@drfirst.com.
