e-prescribing

Electronic prescribing or e-prescribing is the process of creating a prescription by software and sending the prescription to a pharmacist without having to use fax or paper.  For Medicare incentive payments, there is a list of qualified software and services.  Doxio has a built-in prescription module that greatly automates the prescription process but does not fulfill this requirement.  Such an upgrade will be implemented in the coming months as we work toward certification to qualify for meaningful use

For those interested in implementing e-prescribing in their practice now, there are available services that are either free or very affordable.  Among them are RelayHealth, the National E-prescribing Initiative thru Allscripts, and Quest.  These services are not as fast and robust as we would like so we plan to implement our own web service for this and other Doxio interfaces in the future.

In the meantime, Doxio's prescription module is very efficient and can be customized to print onto just about any secure paper your printer can handle.  Our office uses RxSecurity for our secure prescription needs.  Make sure to contact your state agencies for specific requirements and certified security paper vendors.
