MedicalMine Inc. Completes Surescripts EPCS Certification
ChARM EHR (Electronic Health Records) Now Connects Physicians With Pharmacies Across the Country for E-Prescribing of Controlled Substances
PLEASANTON, Calif., April 24, 2018 (Newswire.com) - MedicalMine Inc. a leading provider in cloud and mobile-based Health IT software, announces that one of its products, ChARM EHR has been certified by Surescripts for E-Prescribing for Controlled Substances (EPCS). ChARM EHR users will now be able to electronically and securely exchange controlled substance prescriptions with pharmacies without risk of alteration or diversion.
“The integration of EPCS is a valuable addition to the ChARM Health suite of applications. The incorporation of secure and two-factor authenticated transmission of EPCS allows the convenience of electronic prescriptions, while keeping the prescriptions of controlled substances free from potential abuse. This enhancement also supports the current emphasis on curtailing prescription drug abuse,” said Pramila Srinivasan, CEO, MedicalMine Inc.
The connection to Surescripts also allows for electronic routing of controlled substance prescription refill requests, which physicians can receive through their office computer instead of their fax machine. Refill authorizations, or denials, can then be electronically communicated back to the pharmacy with just a few clicks of a computer mouse, thereby eliminating the repeated need for back and forth faxes and phone calls associated with the traditional refill process. New prescriptions can also be routed directly to pharmacy computers before a patient ever leaves their physician’s office. Prescribers can now also cancel a prescription that has been already transmitted to the pharmacy.
