Doctors at Henry Ford electronically prescribe by accessing DrFirst’s Rcopia point of care software using a personal computer or wireless device such as a tablet PC. They can order or renew prescriptions and then transmit them over the Internet to retail and mail order pharmacies. HAP and Henry Ford provide training and ongoing support to office personnel, and HAP provides funding support and project management for the program. What began as a modest pilot project last year with 60 physicians quickly became a Henry Ford Health System-wide initiative, engaging more than 600 physicians.
DrFirst also provides leading edge secure text messaging platforms.
