Fully Integrated E-Prescribing Solution Will Dramatically Improve Prescribing Safety and Efficiency
May 23, 2008
Houston, TX and Rockville, MD — Spring Medical Systems announced today its new partnership with DrFirst to provide comprehensive e-prescribing functionality to practices using the company’s SpringCharts® Electronic Health Records (EHR) system. The fully integrated e-prescribing solution will enable customers to improve prescribing safety and medical practice efficiency.
With the integration of DrFirst’s Rcopia e-prescribing technology, SpringCharts users will now be able to easily and securely submit electronic prescriptions to any retail or mail-order pharmacy while accessing comprehensive clinical information for each patient. Accessible patient information includes drug and allergy interactions, complete prescribing histories and formulary information. Doctors and their staff members can easily access this SureScripts-Certified functionality from within the SpringCharts desktop and all resulting prescribing data is instantly captured within the application.
The joint e-prescribing solution will comply with upcoming regulatory requirements issued by CMS. Additionally, customers using the solution will eliminate illegible prescriptions, issue faster prescriptions, and experience dramatic reductions in calls and faxes between the medical office and the pharmacy.
“We are pleased to work with Spring Medical Systems to bring industry-leading electronic prescribing technology to its physician customers,” said G. Cameron Deemer, President of DrFirst. “Through this integration, SpringCharts users will participate in the benefits of e-prescribing while being fully compliant with the growing body of state and federal regulations.”
“In partnering with an established e-prescribing leader such as DrFirst, Spring Medical Systems continues its dedication to expand SpringCharts functionality,” said Jack Smyth, president and CEO of Spring Medical Systems. “We keep pushing the technology envelope further to stay ahead of customer demand and offer the best and most affordable EHR system possible.”
