eMedicalFusion launches eRx Connect — Web-based Prescribing Solution
eMedicalFusion launches eRx Connect, a secure web-based prescribing application that connects prescribers, compounding pharmacies and patients in an network that optimizes the entire prescribing and refilling process for compound medications
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
eMedicalFusion, LLC, with headquarters in St. Louis, MO and technology leadership in the Virginia technology corridor in Tysons Corner, VA unveils eRx Connect, the platform that connects prescribers, compounding pharmacies and patients with next generation technology that saves time and increases accuracy and optimizes the business process for all participants. eRx Connect provides the following key benefits:
- Prescribers get instant access to the pharmacyâ€™s entire formulary â€“ avoiding the painful task of creating and managing compound formulary entries in traditional EMR/EHRâ€™s. This increases accuracy and saves time for prescribers
- Patients get an easy to read view of their medications and instructions and one click access to pharmacy refills and prescriber refill authorization requests
- Pharmacies using the Compounder Rx by PCCA get the benefit of prescriptions that automatically populate into the pharmacyâ€™s compound management system for greater efficiency and accuracy
Talking about the new eRx Connect platform, Andre Etherly CEO and Chief Technology Officer says, â€œWe have been studying the challenges of prescribing medications from all angles for nearly two years. This module is designed to optimize the entire business process for prescribers, pharmacies and patients and we are very excited to see this part of our vision come to fruition. â€ Etherly also says that he is pleased with the initial responses from prescribers and pharmacies as the interest from pharmacies and prescribers has been building over the last few weeks by â€œword of mouthâ€ as we began talking about the new module as it went into final development and testing in January of this year.
â€œSince the founding of the company, Integrating and enabling practitioners, pharmacies and patients has been part of the vision and â€œfabricâ€ of eMedicalFusion, but nothing to date has had the impact that this module will ultimately have given the important role of compounded medications for our target marketâ€, says Diana Baumohl, Vice President. We have made a significant investment into the module and we are confident that is the right investment at the right time for this market.
eRx Connect is different from the major pharmacy networks in that eRx Connect provides a direct connection with compounding pharmacies and this feature allows the prescriber to directly use the pharmacyâ€™s formulary, avoiding the tedious task of creating formulary entries in a traditional e-prescribing tool, thereby saving time and ensuring precise communication with pharmacies. For pharmacies that do not use the Compounder Rx by PCCA, eRx Connect can still deliver prescriptions to them by secure fax. And while the system is optimized for compound medications, the system contains a standard drug database and a listing of over 75,000 pharmacies nationwide for prescribing standard medications from regular retail pharmacies.
Todayâ€™s initial release of eRx Connect extends the eMedicalFusion promise of â€œjust add the doctorâ€, says Etherly. eMedicalFusionâ€™s vision has always been to provide the complete solution for doctors operating in one of the cash/concierge revenue models regardless of their particular specialty. Some are Antiaging or Age Management physicians, some specialize in Functional Medicine, some characterize their practice as â€œIntegrativeâ€ and yet others are Family Practitioners that have decided to opt out of insurance in order to regain control of how they treat patients. There is a growing number of doctors opting out of insurance and eMedicalFusion provides the complete solution whether the practice is new/emerging, well established or a large complex practice consisting of multiple physicians and multiple locations.
