SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (November 12, 2013) – DocuTAP, the leading provider of integrated electronic medical records (EMR) and practice management technology for urgent care practices, has announced that the company has received Surescripts® certification for ePrescription (eRx) functionality of prescription routing, benefits, and medication history. This certification designates DocuTAP as a Surescripts Solution Provider.
DocuTAP has integrated the functionality of the Surescripts eRx services with its own software for maximum efficiency and effectiveness. This measure enables physicians and other authorized prescribers to electronically access a patient’s prescription benefit information and medication history, electronically route prescriptions to their patient’s choice of pharmacy, and manage prescription renewals electronically.
“We are excited to connect DocuTAP to the nation’s largest clinical health information network through the Surescripts certification for e-prescribing,” said Darin Vander Well, Director of Product for DocuTAP. “This certification helps us provide customers with an even higher level of service through increased functionality and a quicker way to prescribe and record medications in our EMR.”
DocuTAP’s updated eRx process gives users streamlined steps for drug/formulary selections and a convenient pharmacy search field, as well as a quick-pick list of a patient’s previously used pharmacies. Physicians also have the ability to check drug formularies or review a patient’s prescription history from other clinics and pharmacies.
With the updated eRx service, DocuTAP becomes a strategic partner with Surescripts in facilitating timely, secure and easy access to vital information that helps physicians provide the best and most efficient patient care possible. As the healthcare industry is approaching a critical juncture with new healthcare reform laws and an increased demand for excellent patient care, a Surescripts certification gives partner companies and urgent care practices a distinct advantage in meeting patient needs and surpassing industry standards.
