Tighten Up Your Prescription Process In 3 Easy Steps
Determining which medications your patients need is your domain expertise, but managing the prescription process can be maddening for practice staff, pharmacists, and patients when the process is not automated and integrated into the practice’s EMR. Why allow this administrative pain to linger inside your practice for even one more day? Simply apply the following functional enhancements to Centricity EMR and start ensuring the safe and speedy delivery of pre-authorized prescriptions to pharmacies. Your patients will thank you, pharmacists will thank you, and your lawyer will also be pleased that you’ve addressed another area of legal vulnerability inside your practice.
The days of handwritten prescriptions have mostly faded into memory. Today, providers access, verify, and move critical patient data around in a just few keystrokes. Virence’s ePrescribe functionality is a critical component in this daily mix. With ePrescribe, your clinicians can now electronically:
- Transmit accurate prescriptions to pharmacies
- Receive eligibility and formulary information
- Display medication fill history information
Providers can also use ePrescribe’s time saving commands and built-in tools to increase prescription accuracy. For example, the dosing calculator factors a patient’s weight and other health data to assist physicians in writing orders with confidence.
Electronic Prescription of Controlled Substances (EPCS)
Practices and pharmacies are struggling to control the misuse of opioids and other prescription medications. Thankfully, we have a new tool to address this growing problem. EPCS uses identity proofing, two factor authentication, and biometrics to make the prescribing process seamless and safe.
When you submit prescription information via EPCS, the patient data is crosschecked against the Drug Enforcement Agency’s database in a digital instant. Protect your patients and your practice. With EPCS, your practice can:
- Reduce the risk of fraudulent, stolen, or altered prescriptions
- Eliminate dual workflows
- Protect patients and save them time at the pharmacy
- Create an official record for legal and auditing purposes
