SiliconMesa has announced a partnership with DrFirst to provide Rcopia e-prescribing software, EPCS Gold? 2.0 e-prescribing for controlled substances, and Patient Advisor medication adherence functionality to medical practices in New Mexico and west Texas through the company’s SiliconMesa EHR Electronic Health Records and Practice Management system.
Through the integration of DrFirst’s Rcopia software, SiliconMesa EHR users will be able to improve patient care and increase patient safety by reviewing comprehensive, real-time clinical information about each patient. Patient information available through Rcopia includes drug and allergy interactions, complete medication history and formulary information. Providers will be able to efficiently and securely submit electronic prescriptions to any retail or mail-order pharmacy, with all resulting prescribing data instantly captured within the SiliconMesa EHR application.
In addition, SilconMesa EHR users will be able to e-prescribe for controlled substances through DrFirst’s EPCS Gold 2.0 service. Electronic prescribing of controlled substances is legal for Schedule II through V in New Mexico and for Schedule III through V in Texas.
SiliconMesa EHR will also include DrFirst’s Patient Advisor service, designed to achieve better medication adherence and resulting health outcomes for patients. Patient Advisor’s digital dashboard details a patient’s prescription fill-rate, alerts the provider when a patient needs coaching, generates direct-to-patient reminders and refill alerts, and facilitates patient access to co-pay and prescription coupons, education, and other support tools.
“Our partnership with DrFirst, an established healthcare software solutions leader, demonstrates our ongoing dedication to expand SiliconMesa EHR functionality for our clients,” said Aaron Garcia, CEO of SiliconMesa. “The integration of DrFirst’s Rcopia e-prescribing technology with SiliconMesa EHR allows our clients to be one step ahead of electronic prescribing mandates, provide a higher level of patient service and safety by minimizing potential adverse drug events, and will increase staff productivity due to less time spent with pharmacy questions and renewal requests. Going forward, we will continue to push the technology envelope with innovations that stay ahead of client demand, and deliver the best and most affordable EHR solution possible.”
“SiliconMesa is committed to being ahead of the curve in leveraging advanced, affordable technologies that enable doctors with a better clinical picture of their patient and help improve patient outcomes,” said G. Cameron Deemer, president of DrFirst. “SiliconMesa providers will experience streamlined workflows and direct, positive patient impact on a daily basis through the addition of DrFirst’s innovative services to the SiliconMesa EHR.”
