ePrescribe comes with a full suite of useful features, so you can do more than just write and send electronic prescriptions. Benefits abound with the most important being safer, more efficient drug prescribing.
ePrescribe helps your practice comply with state electronic prescribing of controlled substances (EPCS) mandates. If EPCS is required in your state, ePrescribe allows you to continue prescribing controlled substances legally.
ePrescribe eliminates the issues that can come with handwritten prescriptions. Unlike handwritten prescriptions, ePrescribe prescriptions are always read accurately and cannot be altered on their way to the pharmacist. Your prescriptions are created electronically and instantly transmitted to the pharmacy.
Many major retail pharmacies, such as Walmart, only accept electronic drug prescriptions. ePrescribe meets prescription requirements set by major retail pharmacies. Your patients can easily get their prescriptions filled at their local retail pharmacy of choice with no issues or extra work for you.
ePrescribe connects you to your state’s prescription drug monitoring program (PDMP). With access to the PDMP, you can look up patients in your state database while issuing prescriptions in order to monitor for “doctor shopping” and prescription drug abuse.
ePrescribe helps you keep your patients safe by automatically checking for drug allergies, drug interactions, dosage errors and duplicate therapies.
The TruePriceRX feature in ePrescribe uses insurance information to generate price estimates from nearby pharmacies so your patients can save money on their prescriptions (feature not currently available with Dentrix Ascend).
