MedicalMine, Inc., a health care software company, announced today that it has completed certification with Surescripts, the nation’s largest e-prescription network. With this certification, MedicalMine’s ChARM/EHR (formerly ChARM/Physician) users will now be able to exchange “prescriptions” and/or “prescription information” electronically and securely with pharmacies in communities throughout all 50 states and Washington, D.C.
The addition of this e-prescription capability enhances the innovative pathway of care provided by the ChARM platform of products — from the well-established patient portal ChARM Tracker, to the physician’s portal ChARM/EHR, providing a shared view of treatment tracking to improve outcomes for patients with multi-factorial diseases.
The connection to Surescripts also allows for electronic routing of prescription refill requests, which physicians can receive via 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 many of the faxes and phone calls associated with the traditional refill process. New prescriptions can also be routed directly to pharmacy computers before a patient even leaves their physician’s office.
MedicalMine founder Pramila Srinivasan, PhD said: “We look forward to an ongoing relationship with Surescripts. ChARM/EHR has been designed to provide the best tools to help clinicians run their practices more efficiently, giving them more time to focus on their patients. Surescripts is an important part of our comprehensive software.”
